Yes it is a full packer with a flat & point section.How could be only 5.36 lbs, maybe small cow?
Just curious about the size? I also picked up a 9 lb packer. RD had Royal Oak 16 lbs Red bagfor $10.97
Could you post a pic of the 5.36LB Does it have any fat cap?
I would have to put that on the scales. I'm thinking it looks larger.
Hi All It is a real packer with a flat and a point section..The flat portion looks very thin..Yup never seen one this small. Low N slow is where I'm going with "IT".
Right now it's in the freezer. I'm going to smoke the bigger one that I bought 8.5 Lbs.Might use the 5 lber for my hamburger meat, along with some chuck.
PS I just could not resist buying the 5 lber.
5#'s, we call that dinner for one here in Texas! JK, LOL, yeah, I'm thinking it's probably a super trimmed packer. I know from my own personal trimming experiments, that with my trim method, I take a 12 pounder down to nearly 9 before it even hits the pit.
And I have cooked and still cook a lot of briskets untrimmed and you are right, the fat removes much easier after cooking but to me, the benefits of a heavy trim out weigh the time and effort I spend on the trim. More bark, more flavor to more of the meats surface, equals a better brisket to me. The main part I am trimming out is the huge section of fat, the deckle, in between the flat and point sections anyway. It's useless, it does nothing for the meat, if anything, it increases cook time on the point and allows less heat to get to the point, acting as an insulator and keeping the internal marbling within the glorious point section from fully rendering out. Just the way I do it and that's what makes Q so great, there is no wrong or right way to do it. It all comes down to personal preference.
Veal = a baby cow...right....or maybe a really short one! good things come in small packages!
Hi All Well it is certainty NOT veal. I eat enough Veal to know the difference.Looks just like the other beef brisket I bought except it is 5.36lbs.
Soo the questions remains where did come from?
PS I think I should of left it in RD.
