Hey guys - cooking for two here. I know "trimmed" flats aren't recommended to smoke, so I was wondering if there's some of you who have successfully smoked half of an untrimmed brisket?
I cook on a Small, and never had the desire to cook a full packer for the two of us. However I am itching hard to smoke a brisket.
Two things to take into consideration:
1. I only own a Small - there's no way I can get a full packer on there.
2. I will have left overs for months. I'd rather cook a brisket a few times a year - and make left overs such as chili, burgers, pizza, BBQ beans, etc.
Would any of you advise this? Just purchase either a whole brisket, cut in half, smoke half, freeze half.
Or just purchase half the packer and smoke? (Local butcher has no problem with this).
