So I am planning on cooking my very first brisket for Christmas. Thanks to all the informative posts here, I think I am ready to take on this challenge. This year, I think it will be just my mom and I so I don't know if buying a whole packer would be the best thing to do. We both really do enjoy the extra moist meat from the point...not so much fans of the flat (burnt ends or not lol). I have seen brisket flats on sale individually, but I have never seen a brisket point for sale, unless it's called something that I'm not familiar with. My question Are brisket points available individually, or do I need to just get a packer? If I do get a packet I'm going to cook the whole thin...I'm not going to separate the point from the flat I'm going to go to the store tomorrow and start retconning some brisket. Maybe I can find a butcher/meat market that will just sell me the point? Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions. .
