Reads almost the same as 2022-and edited for clarification.
Thought I would toss out an alertment (after getting poked by @lkapigian =) ) so that everyone has time to find, thaw or give the cow a practice run.  Above all, have fun.  Always remember-the friggin cow drives the cook. Here's to finding the proverbial "feels like buttah" outcome.
Do have one wet aging so this will be perfect timing. 
Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    Time to haul it out, start the thaw and elevate the anticipation.

    I have two briskets in the freezer from young grass fed cows.  I believe combined the whole briskets weigh a total of 11 lb.  When doing my freezer transfer I noticed the cryo pack has failed on both of them.  They will be going straight into some sort of crock pot stew recipe very soon. Perhaps I will try to smoke them for brisket chili for the 28th. That date does feel like memorial day ish.  It's possible I will be occupied at the campground.

    Cooking 3 as we speak to compare the franklin, goldees and blacks rubs to pick my winner for the long weekend.

    also trying the blacks method of smoking for a few hours in my offset, wrap and refrigerate overnight and then finish the next day on the Kamado.

    the argument is similar to cold smoked cheese where the wrap helps the smoke mellow and penetrate so we will see… at worst, makes it easier to have it done for dinner tomorrow

    I should expect a youtube on this great experiment soon?? Yes, would be a great answer!

    I'm here to tell ya- when cooked right (key phrase) the differences in the brisket grade (never have done select) between a good choice, prime, and SRF black are tough to discern especially with the consumer. With the mail order deal you can't eyeball the cut.  You can definitely score a great cut priced at below the grade it presents. 
    Should you win the lottery and move to SRF Gold then that is apparent.  No Q judge here...FWIW
    Happy Friday-

    Game on early Sunday AM. No target delivery time.  Bonus-as I will enjoy whenever I get the brisket across the finish-line. 
    The local small staffed fire house will get a majority of the output.  As it should be. 
    Brisket cooks-the most fun and audibles you can find an a BGE.

    @ColtsFan - that is some fine looking bark on that hunk of brisket gold.  Enjoy the banquet.

    It took me a few seconds for my eyes to adjust and for my brain to fully grasp what is going on here.  I am speechless.  I am without words.  The pic almost puts me in a meet coma.
