Well I am finally going to smoke my first meat this weekend and chose to do a brisket. I found a butcher near me that has whole briskets for 2.99 a lb untrimmed and 4.99 a lb trimmed. How is that for a price? I am assuming I want the untrimmed to I can trim it myself (am I right?). Also they brisket ahs botht he flat and point so is there anything I should really look for in the brisket? Thanks for all the help and I cannot wait to get started. I have my rub all set and going to go with oak wood.
