I opened up a 10 # whole brisket and put on at 3 am. At one end of the brisket it was only about 3/4" thick. This was a piece about 6"x12" then it tapered up to about 2 1/2" thick. Am I going to have trouble with the smaller end drying out quick? Do I trim it off when it gets to temp before the thicker end? I just dont want to burn it. The total size of this thing hung over the edges of a cookie sheet all the way around, the 10#'s was a guess as it was processed for me and didn't have a printed weight. Thanks for the help.
