First attempt at a full packer
I'm having some buddies over tomorrow night for the UFC fights. I planned on doing a tri-tip or something equivalent but came across a ridiculous deal at Sam's club. Despite rumors of bad meat, the price was too sweet to pass on. Prime brisket for $2.58/lb. choice flats were $3.75/lb. I looked around to see if anyone recognized that they were potentially mis-marked. I ended up going with a 10.5lb brisket for about $27.00.
I plan on going all out...I'll smoke it as low as I can maintain until its fork tender. I'll split the point and flat and I'm going to ATTEMPT burnt ends.
It's going on tonight around midnight. I have it trimmed and rubbed down with a homemade brisket rub, and it's waiting in the fridge until later tonight.
I'm a bit on the nervous side...I suck at brisket flats. Hopefully whole packers are a touch more forgiving.
Before I light the grill, should I go fat cap up or down? All arguments are valid.
