    Greetings,
    I'm having a party and I wanted to know if it's a good idea to smoke meat day or 2 before the party day. I have a small electric smoker that is great for me and a small group but I'm planning on 50 people so I'm thinking I need to spread out the smoking over 2-3 days. I'm thinking I will smoke the meat and then cover with foil, let cool, then place in fridge until day of party. I can take them out and heat them on the grill and add sauce before severing.
    Sound like it will be ok?

    What are you smoking?

    Some things reheat better than others.

    I'll be doing a few racks of pork ribs and some beef briskets. The briskets I got are a thinner cut of brisket and have nice marble. I've smoked a few of these I found and boy are they good. They are the cheapest cut of meat you can find at Costco right now (in my area).

    That is what I do.....smoke ahead of time, refrig it and reheat it on grill for party. It will all taste good!!
