We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Fat Cap Quandary!

Well, unwapped the 7.25lb brisket I picked up from the butcher yesterday. I had asked for a nice fat cap to be on it. It looks like they had started to trim the fat off and then realized that I had wanted it left on. Half of the brisket has the fat on and half has it trimed off. It must be they tried to make amends 'cause they laid a hugh chunk of fat (at least 1/2") on top of the brisket where all the fat had been trimmed off. Question is, shall I tie the loose fat cap onto the brisket with some cooking twine and go ahead with the cook, or discard it? What are your recommendations?
Thanks, NG
