Depends on how big the brisket is. ;-)
I highly suggest trimming the brisket, I think John has a video for that. It makes for even cooking and a better brisket getting the excess fat off, which makes it fit better on the grill.

I was able to fit a 14 lb. full packer's brisket on mine last weekend. That was the weight before trimming.
