Brisket Separation Photo

BOWHUNRBOWHUNR Posts: 1,405
Not too long ago there was a brisket thread where someone posted a photo of a whole packer and photo shopped in lines to show where to separate the point and the flat.  I have a buddy in Wyoming that is new to egging and is doing his first packer this weekend.  I was hoping to point him toward that photo.  I have tried the search function, but can't seem to find it.  Thanks in advance to whoever may have it.

    Cen-tex didn't have a line superimposed on his pictures but he had a pretty good explanation in a thread I had a month or so ago.

    There is a vein of fat that separates the 2. Just follow it down with your knife it will slide right between them.

    once the brisket is cooked and done or very close to done it will be very obvious, at least on the packers I have cooked it was.

    Is that line in the wrong place?

    If you are talking about the line between A & B on the actual photo, then yes.

    I think that line was for the grain.

    If using that photo to find where to cut the point from the flat it would be the parallel line of white fat (parallel to the superimposed line) that touches the upper left corner of the "B"
