OK folks, following on from my (some say very lucky!) fantastic first smoke... Newbies MAD BeefShorties Weekend Roller coaster ATGNI I have been supplied yet again by an amazing piece of beef from my local butchers. G. N. Badley They have once more said I can take it back to them to have it cut/butchered in any way I like. It is just under 5kgs, so about 11 pounds. Following this High Heat Brisket info I am after advice on if I should alter the shape/trim the fat on this fantastic bit of meat. Can anyone make any suggestions please? Original full brisket: This section I have had is about 30cm x 40cm x 2-7cm: Little bit of fat coverage A little bit thin on the left hand side. Nice bit of fat... Muscle looks good! Hoping it may shrink a little, so it fits better!!! Not bad for £25! Which is probably about $3 after the news from today Your ideas please gents?
