    so I plan on doing two butts on one rack with a packer brisket as well. I didnt know if there were any food safety issues with this as i planned on putting the brisket on the rack above the butts? Or should the brisket go on the bottom?

    I think there was a thread about this just the other day and it's really your choice, no safety issue. Myself, I put the butts above the brisket because I think it will help baste the brisket but that could all be in my head. Either way you go I'm sure it will turn out great.

    Me , i would put them in a pan or pan under them to catch the juice from them .
    Can defat the juice and put back in the pulled pork or make gravy out of it.
    or make chef JJ Au jus sauce Thumbs Up
     
  5. I did a butt above the brisket and made Chef Jimmy's Au Jus...it's some awesome stuff. I used leftover Au Jus the other night for some elk French Dip sandwiches
