Good morning all, hope you had a great Christmas. I have a question for those in the know... We're planning a NYE party and decided to smoke a brisket. I cant decide to slice it for sandwiches or slice it and serve it "as is". Is brisket any good when served like cheesesteaks (with grilled onions, peppers and provolove) or is it best served "plain" like a slice of roast beef? Also, I see a lot of talk about packers vs flats....whats the difference and which would be better for my needs? Last question for now...there will be about 10 adults and 4 kids there so how big of a brisket should I buy? Thanks much for saving whats left of my hair.
