Trying to do this for the first time but I cant even figure out the difference between the flat and point. I am starting to think I was given the worlds strangest piece of meat. To me it looks like the entire thing is the point. There is a line of fat that is running through the meat which is seen in the first picture where I have cut it open a bit. If the left portion of the first picture is the point then my entire brisket is basically the point. Can that be possible?


Please help.

Can't see the pictures in the usual SMF format.  Here is a link to show you how to upload them so we can see better. is a link to "how to smoke a brisket" that may help too.

Sorry but I can't see your pics for some reason - here is a thread that should help you


As for myself, I cook brisket at a smoker temp of 225 - 250* & monitor the IT of the meat. Once it reaches 175* I start testing it every hour with a toothpick - once it goes in & out effortlessly I pull it. This has happened at a wide range of ITs - from 177 - 200* I then wrap the brisket in foil & put it in a cooler to rest for at least an hour before slicing it. As for time you can figure roughly 2 hours per pound but brisket has a mind of its own & can be very unpredictable...
