I bought a 12lb brisket today thinking that I have always cooked ones of that size and figured it would fit in my marinating container....WRONG!! I went ahead and cut ~6" off of the end of the brisket. I am going to cook the two together but will insert my Digi Q probe into the larger portion.
Did I screw anything up? What should I have done (aside from buy a smaller brisket)?
Thanks in advance for the help.
