I am pretty new to briskets, and this forum, I have never cooked a whole brisket, I have had good luck smoking brisket points, but none with flats. I was at the local HEB today and eyed 2 prime briskets at a price I could not pass, they were labeled as packers but appear trimmed to me. My question is, what is the best way to cut them smaller? I have separated points from flats before but usually the flats came out dry (may have not smoked it properly). Would it be better just to cut it down the middle?
