    So I have been hunting for a full packer brisket and still can't find one. I went to Costco on Saturday and all they had were flats (and the butcher said that's all they ever get). So I sorted through them and found the one with the most fat that was about 7.5 pounds.

    I planned on wrapping in butcher paper but I forgot to buy some when I was at the store so I resorted to foil.

    I slathered it with some steak sauce and rubbed it with S&P.

    Smoked at 250 until it got through the stall then wrapped it with foil to catch some juices.

    I probe tested it for tenderness and pulled it at 205 (right at 7 hours on the smoker). Looking back it probably needed another 20-30 minutes as some of the connective tissue had not finished breaking down.

    All in all it was a good brisket. I just hope I can track down a packer as these flats seem to be hard to get right.

  4. Good looking flat! Walmart and Sam's near me usually have full packers.  
  5. How much did you have to pay for the flat?

  7. The meat isn't cheap.  I can get packers around here for about $3-4 per\lb.  Ingles has them 8.98 per\lb.
