I was in Costco the other day and noticed a few small brisket flats in the cryo, which is unusual for my Costco. Normally, if they have any out at all, they're all trimmed of fat and store wrapped. I found this totally floppy 6 lb one and bought it. I've read that these can actually benefit from some wet aging (just keeping it in the back of the fridge, sealed in the cryo, for a couple of weeks). So, I'm not rushing into cooking it.
I'm really happy with my turbo ribs. I use my own wet/dry rubs, preferably applied the night before. Cook indirect a little over an hour at 300-350F, then I foil them drizzled with honey and pour in some apple cider. Cook another 1:15. Remove from foil, brush with a mix of BBQ sauce and the liquids from the foil. Put back on the grill 20min or so indirect. If people aren't in a rush to eat, remove and foil for a bit.
So...I'm wondering if I can do roughly the same with a small brisket flat. Obviously, I'd give it more time...probably about 2 hours on the grill, 2 hours "boated" with the honey and cider, and if I sauced it at the end, another 30 min on the grill, and then probably 30min-1hr FTC. We're going to have family visiting in about 2 weeks. What's the odds of this working? By then, it'll have been about 3 weeks since I bought it.
