Have a friend who raises beef cattle and I had him save me the brisket from a beef he sold and had butchered for a family member. He knew nothing about briskets so I told him to tell the butcher I wanted the whole brisket. When I picked it up from him today it was in to pieces so I knew they had separated the point from the flat but I said nothing to him because he was not charging me for it. When I got home and unwrapped it I discovered that not only had they separated the point from the flat but had completely removed all the fat! I mean not a trace of fat is to be found at all. I have no idea what to do with this thing, is there anyway to smoke it without completely drying it out?
