Default 35 Briskets??

This afternoon I was having a conversation about BBQ with a gentleman from my wife's church. He mentioned ( hinted really ) that their normal guy was not going to be able to cook their 35 briskets for an event next year. I'll admit it,,, I can't even imagine cooking that many briskets at once. But it did make me wonder just what kind of cookers would be used for such a chore. How many packers does a Lang 84 hold?

My wife said she though the guy cooked them ahead of time and re-heated for the event. Still,,, that's a chore.

Depending on size I might be able to get them in my Shirley. I'd love to try with the right number of helpers. You will need sharp knives or the trimming will take days.

I think about 24 would be the limit for my Peoria Cooker, maybe a few more depending on the size of the briskets.

I think I'd trim a few every day leading up to the event instead of trying to do them all at once.

Geez, you're right. I hadn't even considered the time involved in trimming that many.

I'm a thorough trimmer. Even in a rush it takes me 30 minutes per brisket. Did 8 for my first big cook. So glad it decided to trim the night before.

Here's a mix of 30 something Butts/Briskets (and a few ribs) and the warmer still has room. Scaling meat is easy (relatively speaking), scaling sides sucks a lot.

Mad Scientist BBQ did 20 briskets on a 500 gallon propane tank smoker and it was pretty well maxed out. If he had re-arranged them maybe he could have gotten another brisket per rack, so I would guess 24 would have been at max capacity. I think I could do 12 pretty easily on my Johnson 60" cooker, maybe 14 if I really got in there and arranged things well.

35 briskets at say 13lbs each is 455lbs of meat. A conservative % of loss after trimming/shrinkage during cooking is 50% so 227.5lbs of net meat.

That's. A. Lot. Of. Meat.

I don't know how many folks. But it has evidently been done every year for the last 7 or 8 years,,, so I guess they have figured out how much they need.
