Is that something that's done after smoking?
I've been searching around for instruction on meat preparation since I intend to purchase a whole brisket and trim it myself. Not to worry, I have a full first aid kit here somewhere and promise to ask for it if I cut myself..
The videos I've watched on U-tube have been great, but it still leaves me thinking the flat is not normally separated from the point until the meat is cooked. Does anyone ever carve the brisket into a flat and a point before smoking?
In any event. These are great videos to watch for new smokers. Personally, I think they trim too much, but if it's your first time in a kitchen with a carving knife, give them a view.
