Howdy all, Well, I bought a brisket from a new meat shop here in town. It's a choice cut, paid 2.99 a lb. and it is 14.53 pounds. I think that's a little large, but it's here now so whattya gonna do? I just opened up the package, and I haven't a clue! LOL! Actually, I realize it needs some massive trimming, I mean look at that hunk of fat! I do have fairly decent knife skills, so that's not too intimidating. And since this is my first time, I'm not expecting a whole lot, live and learn aye? So, you nice fellers can jump on in here and help a sista out with some advice. I want to marinate it overnight and put it on the smoker early tomorrow a.m. (I plan on having a couple of drinks tonite, so probably not too early).
