Wet aging brisket??

I'm wondering how many of you age your brisket in the refer? I just read a thread that got me thinking about aging brisket. I'm just talking about buying it in a cryo pack and letting it "wet" age. Is there any advantage? It it worth it? I get most of my briskets from Costco, prime.

I'm also one of those guys that has no problem going past the stamped "use by" date. Especially beef, so long as it smells good and hasn't been too long.

Let me know your thoughts.

More of a seasoning meld ageing at this point. I did leave it in cryovac for a couple weeks. Then I trimmed, seasoned and re vac sealed it to hang out for a couple weeks. Not sure if any more ageing really happens but the end result last time (link in sig) is worth this re trial :emoji_fingers_crossed::emoji_thumbsup:
