Center cut brisket

Saw one while picking up my pork belly... Small but looked like part of the point. Any insight. Looked better than a flat.

  • stop being a wuss and cook a packer. would need pics to tell you what it is. never heard of a center cut brisket. Sounds more expensive than regular brisket ;)

    It's very small.. 3 lbs. The texture looks like a packer. Thought it would be a nice, quick meal. I'm still not good at packers... Or flats.

    Have you tried boiling them? I hear it works great. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I'm with the other TXans - just cook it already. How badly could you fark it up? You could always make chili or brisket spaghetti sauce with it.

     But if you put beans in the chili, we don't know you.

    well.....you won't get any better by not cooking them. stop looking at these little POS cuts of meat and get something big. you have no chance of cooking better with smaller, non conforming cuts of brisket. that sh*t is for newbs and people who don't know what they are doing (or people who do know what they are doing when making corned beef or pastrami- not bbq)
