So today I did my usual Costco stop after work to pickup stealhead to smoke on Sunday when what did my eyes find? A beautiful 11 lb packer. Even better was that today brisket prices were $3.69/lb for a USDA Prime full packer. Just last week they were $4.29/lb.
It is going on the smoker tomorrow AM.
Usual brisket prep
Rubbed with Montreal Steak Seasoning, just added the rub to the brisket, did NOT use OO this time.
Cut into two peices so it fits inside my MES 30
Plan on smoking with cherry.
Here it is before the split, fat side up
Here it is after the split, fat side down
Will post more pics tomorrow.
