Question: Brisket Poundage

If I have the choice between a 10, 12, 14, or 16 pound packer, is one poundage better than the other? In other words, is there a "sweet spot" for brisket weight? TIA

    buy them all  :)

    I have cooked a whole brisket recently. Poundage doesn't matter. Just don't let the flat get too over done.. In the past, I have a thermometer in the flat, and when it gets done (long before the packer), I will cut off the flat and FTC it. Sometimes will even cut that up and make burnt ends. YMMV
  • 12 or 14. Pick the one with the thickest thin part.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
