Default Newb Question Re: Stacking meats


I would like to smoke a brisket (10lb) and a Pork Butt (10lb). I'm currently using a gasser that is tall and narrow. The Brisket will take up a whole rack (The brisket is as big as the smoker), Can I smoke the pork butt below the brisket?
Will the juices from the brisket ruin the pork butt?
Can I use a drip tray, with out compromising the flavor?
Should I freeze one of the two for later use?

Thank you for your help with these newb questions.

Yes, you can. But pork above beef is better.

i stack all the time, but for some reason i always put the buts on top of the brisket, the flavor is great. The only time i have ever done beef on top is when i was cooking for some people that didn't eat pork for religious reasons. I am not sure why i started doing it this way, i just started doing it pork on top and i guess if it aint broke, don't fix it.

Sounds good, Butt on the top. Do you use the same rub for both?

I guess I'm the odd one out. I'd put the pork below the beef...even though I know that pork borne diseases are all but wiped out. Maybe I'm just a freak....I put chicken on bottom, pork in the middle and beef on top. Chicken...always...in any grill/smoker configuration...on the bottom.
