    Found a place that carries packer briskets.. better yet, PRIME packers... WOO HOO!!!!
    Picked up 2, one is in the freezer - this is the other one ...



    Not sure how much this one weighs, but it is the smaller of the 2, and together they were 21 pounds...
    It's sitting on a full sized sheet pan


    All trimmed up..


    Underside


    We also picked up some beef ribs... not too meaty, but will be a nice snack for the Eagles game...


    Everyone loaded into the Traeger... we were thinking about putting on a pork butt too but there is no space... [​IMG]

  2. CAB Prime Brisket.  Yum.  Looks like it's gonna be a great day.  What kind of rub, pellets, and temps are you using?

    Hey Ellymae!!! Finally caught one of your posts again...haven't had much time to browse lately, so this will be a treat for me. Nice looking packer!!! Just now found out you have the Traeger, and it seems it's earning it's keep while you keep it busy...[​IMG]

    You're doing burnt ends with the point, I assume? Love 'em!!! I'll be patiently awaiting the finish...[​IMG]

    7 1/2 hours in... last 2 in foil...
    Took off the point and added the flat and the juice to a pan...


    The flat is now resting in a cooler..

    Cut up the point...


    Added more rub and these beauties back in the smoker.
    As I was cutting these up, Big Al snuck a taste and the only words out of his mouth were.. Oh my... oh my....

    Mac and cheese in the oven now... can't wait for dinner.
