Help me identify brisket, please?

I'm a newb when it comes to all of this. I went to my butcher and asked him for some brisket and he gave me this.

It weighs 11.35 pounds. I don't know if it's a packer, a point, or a flat. Can you help me identify it please?








If you need any other angles or information let me know, I'll be glad to get it for you.

I'm not really wanting to cut it open until I bbq it in a couple days.

Thanks,
Kevin.

  • at that weight, it's most likely a packer. That shape is weird but it may be the bag it's in. Check out the thread I have going now for a good idea of a traditional packer shape. it looks like a scuba diving fin for lack of a better idea of what to call it

  • actually, those pictures are horrible to determine shape :))

    Thanks.  I'm guess a fella' can trim up the skirt on this thing?  Otherwise I'm looking at about a 3" variance in thicknesses. 
  • yep, this one needs to be trimmed. Even it up a little and you'll be good

    Trim.  Grind the scraps for burgers, and include a good amount of the fat.  The best....
