    Hello all:

    I can't find decent brisket anymore around where i live. I have checked Sam's club and Walmart, Food lion etc. no one carries whole packers, we got a new Publix about 6 months ago so i checked out what they have. talked to the meat manager he showed me the "whole" briskets they had. What they had was a brisket with 90% of the fat trimmed off and little bit of point and 3/4 of the flat. So i bought the biggest one they had.and i smoked it. It tasted great but didn't have the fat content i wanted. here is how it came out...

    No trimming on my part this is how it came out of the package..

    4.55 #

    I covered in Worcestershire and black pepper 

    I put it on Black Betty at 250 degrees...

    Pulled the Brisket at 202.3 degrees from the smoker about 5 and half hours

    Let it rest for about 2 hours or so wrapped in aluminum foil

     Sliced it across the grain..tender and juicy but was a bit different with all the trimming

     We had brisket for Dinner Saturday night and everyone loved it!

    Just another day in paradise!

    thanks for looking and any comment or points you have!

    Happy Smoking,

    Brisket looks good to me. Do you have a Restaurant Depot anywhere near you? They have whole packer briskets. If you do and you don't have a tax ID number you can join the KCBS and get a day pass every time you go.

    That's odd... I can get full packers at Sams and wally world here in Raleigh. Sams packers can be massive where wally worlds packers are a bit on the smaller side but still full and with a good fat cap

    Brisket looks great Aaron

    See what he did? He saved those pics from Saturday and put them out when he figured we wouldn't have anything else good to look at on a Tuesday. So we would all have a full load of points to give out. What a trick!
    Gonna have to remember that one! Lol

    Nice work! Points here! 😂
