I got a nice looking full packer from GFS yesterday for $1.99/lb.

I couldn't pass it up. I was going to do ribs tomorrow but now it will be brisket.

I am going to separate the point and flat. I will use the point for ground beef.

I am thinking of using my umami bomb injection with Jeff's Texas rub and mesquite chunks low and slow.

I will post pics after the cook....

Well, my brisket cook went quite well. I paid $2.99/lb for the brisket not $1.99 like I first posted.

Here are the results...

Brisket coming out of the vac bag.

A nasty gash by the meat processor.

Flat trimmed up. Not my best work... ;) I separated the point and flat.

Point and trim meat. Made this into ground beef and then made some burgers out of it. Very tasty.

A generous application of Jeff's Texas rub

In the fridge overnight now ready for the pit

Sliced brisket goodness

Brisket was just a tad on the dry side but had fantastic flavor. For a GFS $2.99/lb choice packer, this turned out quite well.

I was most impressed by the deep beef flavor this brisket had. It tastes as good cold as it did hot.

Chopped up some brisket and made a potato, carrot, onion, brisket hash for breakfast.

One thing is for sure. I am going to run out of brisket way too soon. I guess another trip to GFS may be in order.

Thanks for looking.

Looks great! I find they all seem to have some unique trimming from the packing plant. my last one has very little fat cap under the flat...like 1/8 of not very dense fat. i was very concerned, but figured i was all in anyways. seemed to work.

Looks real good from my screen JC. A tad dry brisket is still better then no brisket.

Point for sure

Looks good to me . I've found that a " tad dry " reheats really well after a couple days wrapped in the fridge .
I ground up a nice choice packer yestetday . GFS has had some really nice meat lately .

Great looking brisket. Like! Drove me straight to the freezer to pull out some I recently smoked and vac-sealed.

Looks pretty good. I agree with the others even if it's a little dry still better than no brisket.
