    Great deal and looks like a good initial butcher trim job. 
    Gotta admit that it must be an industry standard to label brisket as "boneless" as the only time I have seen a bone in brisket was when the Bearded Butchers intentionally trimmed one out that way for a side by side cook test.  (no difference noted.) FWIW-
    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.

    Is it appropriate to say you boned a brisket or you deboned a brisket? I'm asking seriously, I live in the country and all of our prairie briskets died of petulance while I was watching The Little House on The Prairie inside the cabin. It turns out you can't just move into some random cabin in the woods, throw beef seed out the windows and wait for brisket bounty while watching 1970's era TV shows. I thought I was onto something too when I went there. So you can see the question about deboning a brisket or boning a brisket makes sense. I'm only trying to figure out if I should have boned the brisket before throwing the beef seed out the window
