Been wanting to smoke a brisket for a while, Each time I go to Costco I always stop and look to see what they have. A full 15lb + packer is just too much for our family unless we want to throw a party. And buying an overtrimmed flat is WAY to expensive at ~$6.50/lb So today I did my usual Costco stop after work to pickup stealhead to smoke on Sunday when what did my eyes find? A beautiful 11 lb packer. Even better was that today brisket prices were $3.69/lb for a USDA Prime full packer. Just last week they were $4.29/lb. It is going on the smoker tomorrow AM. Usual brisket prep Rubbed with Montreal Steak Seasoning, just added the rub to the brisket, did NOT use OO this time. Cut into two peices so it fits inside my MES 30 Plan on smoking with cherry. Here it is before the split, fat side up Here it is after the split, fat side down Will post more pics tomorrow.
