This is my Wamart brisket for Sunday, all rubbed up and ready for some serious marinating time. Thought I'd do it a day ahead, just in case I need to resort to the KFC plan B. must say I was really surprised and well pleased that our Walmart Super Center had this nice packer. More to follow with some que view. Wish me luck....I'm guessing about an 18 hour project. Forgot to ask....is it ok to cut the thing in half (point and flat separate) while smoking? You'd think whoever designed the MES 30 would have known someone would want to do a whole brisket; no?
