    When you guys do a brisket do you normally get a whole brisket or just a point or flat. All I have been able to find is a flat. I'm just wondering if all the info I'm reading on here is mostly about doing a whole brisket?

    whole packer briskets here. you should be able to get them @ walmart or sam's club- as i don't know what grocer chains you have there.

    Kroger, Giant Eagle, Wal Mart check at all of them and just find the flat. It says brisket flat on it, big diamond shaped and maybe 2 inches thick.

    I only smoke whole packers too. Ask your butcher, he prolly has a whole packer somewhere behind the counter. If not, just a flat will be tasty too.

    Well for this one really all I want to do is a flat because I'll be doing it from work, smoking at work again!![​IMG] Are there any different instructions or tips for just a flat instead of the whole brisket?
