I have a small piece of brisket ( I think part of a flat ) That is maybe 3 or 4 pounds.  It is also cut for stuffing I want to cook up to slice.

I will be using my uds.

I need some info on cooking this thing.

Should I worry about it being sliced in the middle?

Thanks

When you say sliced down the middle, I am assuming it is a "filet" type cut and not just chopped in half correct? I guess just make sure it stays closed during cooking to ensure it won't dry out. Butcher twine might help with that. On a positive note, you can get better penetration when you marinade and rub it, so maybe consider doing that....?

Ya, it pretty much has a pocket cut in it to stuff it.

Smoke away. It will dry out a litte from the slit. You can add something to the pocket if you want. Maybe mushrooms, onions, or jalapenos

Happy smoken.

If any parts of it do dry out a little then they can simply be used to make more burnt ends... mmmm Nothing need go to waste.

Even some of my prime brisket gets put aside to make some burnt ends as my wife just loves them.

burnt ends with a flat cut? huh?
Its not where they come from its what you do with them that count. If you want to play semantics then call them burnt flat cuts instead

Sounds good. Maybe a little garlic too (if your family likes that). Takes some pics and show us how it turns out. You could be a pioneer on this!

Ok, going to stuff with peppers,onion and garlic.  Wrapping in foil around 3 hour mark.

Should I pre cook the stuffing?
