Brisket question

edited 10:58AM in EggHead Forum
Just found a new meat cutter by a customer of mine that does a fine job. Prices are right there and he will order anything if the store does not carry it. I just got off the phone with him and asked if he ever carries briskets. He said not usually but he can get me one in 2 days. I asked the weight and he said about 9 lbs. I know NB has touched this subject many times. Do I want the full brisket or just the flat? he said he could do either. Also, what is the diference? Just more "Chuck O' Chest"?[p]Thanks all.[p]Mick

    MickeyT., Makes me always think of Dolly Parton for some reason :-)
    You might like this website. Explains a lot.
    Consider the BGE cooking methods tho..times and temps.

    MickeyT.,
    The whole briskets seem to come out best for me. Leftovers are righteous. And you get a different texture in the flat than you do in the point. So everyone can pick the type of meat they want. Also, there is something almost religious about laying that full chunk-o-chest on the grate, and closing the lid for the duration.[p]Need to do another one soon.

    Char-Woody,
    That site illustrates nicely how the flat and the point come apart...although I leave em together.
    But the photos show perfectly the difference between the flat and point, which was confusing to me at first. [p]Tanks for the link!
