Can I make burnt ends from this?

My wife picked this up and I'm wondering if I can make burnt ends out of it? I've never made them before and I have no idea if this will work? It's a brisket flat cut.

I think you can make burnt ends out of any part of the brisket. Just cook it like you were going to eat it sliced but instead of slicing it, cube it up in roughly 1" sizes.

I just did some burnt ends tonight by throwing my cubes (1/2 were from the point and 1/2 were from left over flat) in some au jus from the drippings, lightly season them with some more rub that initially used when cooking, smoke for about 30 minutes or so at 275* to dry them a little bit. Then I start coating them with my BBQ sauce every 30 minutes for another 90 minutes or so.

Then viola:


They were tasty. My neighbor and i ate them while drinking beer and watching the ESPY's

Thanks nomad, I wasn't sure if I should smoke it whole or cube them first and then smoke them. The little flat I have is only a bit over 1# so this will strictly be a trial run.

They actually came out pretty good for a first try, thanks for asking :biggrin:. They came out a little chewy, which tells me I need to let them go a little tale longer next time. SWMBO liked them a lot so I know I'm on the right track!
