So, we went to Smart&Final today and picked up 2 hunks of brisket - a 3-lb flat and a 3-lb point that I'm going to be heating up tomorrow. But I've got a couple of questions:
- Since these are two pieces of meat should I use the total weight to figure out an approximate time for smoking, or since both pieces will be in the smoker together do I use the weight of one of them? (I know that sounds like a basic dummy question - I looked through the wiki page and couldn't find the answer!)
- My last flat I marinated overnight - this time I want to try both a marinade and an injection - should I inject it today and let it sit overnight or should I inject it just before it goes into the smoker? I'm thinking I will inject the flat and marinade the point just to compare with the last (my first) flat that I marinaded.
If I remember I'm going to be taking a bunch of photos this time! Thanks for all the help - this forum is a wealth of knowledge!
