Quick, cheap brisket on now

Bought this to cook July 4th.
Been unintentionally wet aging in fridge. Smelled just a little sour but I guess that’s normal for wet aging.

Thank you,

    Everything looks good.  I've never tried wet aging, but sour smelling meat scares me.  I'm guessing you know what you are doing.

    Best to you on that experiment. If Lora smells it i really can’t see her getting into it?
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max when they came out (I'm good for now).

    No truer words have been spoken.
    She was a little freaked out by the home dry aged primal strip. But after she saw it trimmed up all was good.
    I patted this brisket down with paper towels and then trimmed it up. The sour smell was mild and meat surface texture was good. No slime. I feel good about it. I guess will know for sure in next couple days.
    Hope you guys are doing well. Talk soon!
    Thank you,

    Looking good, almost ready to pull and wrap for a rest. Front of flat is probing soft at 200 but Center is still at 185 and a little tough.

    Patience is the watchword...hang in there.  Sweet looking bark right there.

    Came out OK. Had some juice, tender, nice bark with great seasoning flavor and Post Oak wood. Very happy for select grade.
    Thanks for following

    We are our harshest critics.  That said, you nailed it.  I would take that every time.  Time to inhale more and enjoy the meat coma.

    Seems like the fat on lower grade briskets don’t render away as easily as a better cut. Fat is also very bland tasting. Meat quality was still pretty good.Lighting was poor in my cut photos so it’s hard to see true colors.
    But it’s just nice smelling a brisket cooking all night, so it was a well spent 30 bucks.lol
