Ok, so I usually have a company cook at lunch for Christmas party, but this year I decide to give them a brisket to just take home and enjoy. They usually rush through lunch and make another plate to take home anyway. So why not.
8 packer trimmed seasoned and on then Mini last night at 10. 7 packers ready at 8 am this morning. Now, they are resting in the cooler to give out at lunch. 1 still fighting (it was the largest of all).
The pit.

The load

First 5 off.

Looks great. I can't wait until mine gets here.

Do you find that you have to run it with a fan?

Now that's a thoughtful hand-made Christmas gift. Those look very edible to say the least!
That's a 'mini' in name only for that load of meat. What size briskets? Did you run with water in the pan?

Amazing how much meat a vertical can do at a time. Looks great.

Thanks fellas,

The briskets averaged about 12lbs. I trim pretty aggressive. I do not use water in the water pan. I put a large aluminum pan (with one gallon of water) inside the water pan
and never do another thing. The aluminum pan is usually about 1/2 to 3/4 full of juices after the cook.
I always run a fan on an overnight cook. It gives me peace of mind. I started the fire at 8:30 PM, loaded at 10 PM. Set guru at 225* Never wrapped. Pulled all but one brisket at 8am. Into the cooler until 12, when I handed them out. 13# of Kingsford and 6 fist size chunks of mesquite. It was still running at 225* at 1:00 when I left after lunch.

That's an awesome cook. That LSG is the perfect size. One of my cookers has the same size racks and I find that 14lb briskets are the biggest that will fit 2 per rack. There will be some happy coworkers today!

4 butts per rack should fit depending on shape. I get an odd/long one every now and then.

Edit: 6-8LB butts. Probably not going to fit 4 10LB butts.

I agree with Paul 4 per rack on the pork butts. I agree Paul it seams 2 16+ pound briskets would be a lot per shelf. I am cooking 3 -17#'s tonight.
