What do I do with a Packer cut of Brisket in a small Masterbuilt Propane Smoker?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a Masterbuilt propane smoker.. I love the thing... But I also have a 12lb packer of brisket from my favorite butcher.  I would prefer to smoke half now, freeze the other half for later.

Is there a proper way to cut this thing?  Is there an end that will turn out better?

Thanks!

You can separate the point from the flat. The point is leaner piece of meat The flat is more fatty great for corned beef or brisket on the smoker.

Is there a good way to diagram that?  I have only ever gotten my brisket precut for me.  And cutting into this beautiful slab of meat makes me nervous.

I do 3 good things all at the same time. I figure out the grain direction. I cut off about 3 lbs by cutting a corner of the flat so that its cross grain.

 

1. Then it fits in the MES30

2. Then when its done there is no chance of even the drunk Brother-in-law cutting the brisket with the grain.

3. Lastly, its gives be about 3 to 4 pounds of brisquet to grind up for chilly. Throw in a pound of pork and you've got all your chili meat for a large pot.

 

win/win/win

From the pic I would say that the point is in the upper right corner. Now you will have to feel were the thicker part, meets the point and cut their.

Maybe someone else can explain that better. I am sure someone will be along .

Typing Backwards---Point is the fatty part------Flat is lean.
