I can't find decent brisket anymore around where i live. I have checked Sam's club and Walmart, Food lion etc. no one carries whole packers, we got a new Publix about 6 months ago so i checked out what they have. talked to the meat manager he showed me the "whole" briskets they had. What they had was a brisket with 90% of the fat trimmed off and little bit of point and 3/4 of the flat. So i bought the biggest one they had.and i smoked it. It tasted great but didn't have the fat content i wanted. here is how it came out...
No trimming on my part this is how it came out of the package..
I covered in Worcestershire and black pepper
I put it on Black Betty at 250 degrees...
Pulled the Brisket at 202.3 degrees from the smoker about 5 and half hours
Let it rest for about 2 hours or so wrapped in aluminum foil
Sliced it across the grain..tender and juicy but was a bit different with all the trimming
We had brisket for Dinner Saturday night and everyone loved it!
Just another day in paradise!
thanks for looking and any comment or points you have!
