So, this is my first brisket smoke and I am really excited. I already have the dry on and just waiting for daylight. Question: the brisket I purchased was around 11lbs and the end of the brisket is about 4" thick has tons of fat. My first thought is to cut this end off but I was wondering if I should save for a stew or just smoke that piece as well. I had to cut the end off anyway so the brisket will fit in the smoker (im just a small fry!!). Any thoughts would be great.
