Alright fellow smokers, I've been planning my 2nd attempt at beef brisket for a while and this weekend is perfect. The only local grocer I've found to carry brisket is Wegman's. This is the *only* cut they have and it is prepackaged. This is the same cut I tried last time and it turned out so-so, but I want to get some expert opinions on exactly what I'm dealing with. The package says 'beef brisket first or mid cut.' It is a 5.5 pounder. I've been reading on the cuts and know that you'd typically get either a packer or just the flat that has already been trimmed. I haven't heard anything about a 'first' or 'mid' cut. 1) What type of cut is this? 2) Should I trim any fat before cooking? 3) Is this a good/fair/bad cut?
