I went out looking for my first brisket Sunday. Walmart had packers. The smallest was 14lbs. It's twice the size of what would fit on a rack in my MES. They were select grade and looked nasty but I've never seen a brisket before. $1.86 a pound. I decide to go to a meat shop across town. They hand me a beautiful 7lb. choice grade angus beef flat. Just the right size and it didn't need any trimming. Has a 1/2 fat cap covering the top. $3.99 a pound. I bought it. Did I screw up?
