First Brisket -some questions
 
Going to try my first brisket and had a few questions:
1) Just the wife and I - after I smoke it, do the "leftovers" freeze well?
2)Only found flats in the local markets -thinking of cooking two, making pastrami out of one. Assuming they are the same size, would the cooking time be the same?

Thanks for any advice.

freeze well? Yes. I use it later in chili and brunswick stew....

cooking time? Maybe, maybe not. Every cut (even from the same supplier)
is going to be different. Some use the thermometers to check, others use
the "push pointy object into it to check for tenderness" option.

Never assume anything about cooking time :biggrin: Each piece of meat will cook in it's own time. As far as making pastrami, are you buying an already corned flat? If you are then you can smoke it for pastrami, but if you are buying a raw flat (uncorned) then you will have to corn it first, which takes from 3 days to a couple of weeks.
