I do. I trim and seperate before I cook. I have the 18.5 WSMs, so I lay the point fat side down first then lay the flat fat side down over the top. Easier to make one fit that way.

I weighed the fat after trimming a packer, and cyphered the price per pound of the trimmed packer and it was cheaper than a trimmed flat. Plus, if you smoke the fat you trimmed, it makes a great cooks snack.

Never would have thought of that. Great tip!
