Ok, I got a full packer last week, it was only select grade and I should have gone to sams club and got the choice, but I figured the market would have better. Got there and was pissed and didnt want to go to sms after so I just got it. Came home and read about how terrible select is and got more upset. Watched some videos and took advice of the bbqpitboys and trimmed ALL THE FAT off of it. Then trimmed and trimmed and trimmed and trimmed. When I was done, my 12lb brisket was about 6lbs LMAO. I sure trimmed that thing! (Yes I know I f****d up) Anyways, I injected with beef broth, and rubbed with some jacks old south meat rub and put it in the fridge till the next morning. Put it on at 225 all day and pulled it at 190. I then took it DIRECTLY to the chopping block and attempted to slice it. I say attempted because this damn thing didnt slice like it does on bbq pitmasters lol. It basically shredded. It was overcooked and not as moist as I thought it would be. I knew this was going to happen once I combined the crappy quality meat with trimming all the fat and half the brisket off lol. I am actually discouraged and do not know if I want to try another one.
