I'm not sure why but I seem to have a lot of luck on my 3rd try on pretty much anything I BBQ. Tonight the same thing applied to a choice brisket flat. Up till now, I've had quite a bit of luck with whole packer briskets but had cooked up practically inedible flats in my first 2 tries of flats alone. Granted those tries came a couple of years ago on my electric smoker and I really didn't have a clue what I was doing (pre-Brethren and pre-Egg days).
Neverless, I decided it was time to redeem myself. That and I wanted brisket and didn't want to cook a packer brisket as I believe that cooking food that can be tied back to a sports team brings that team bad luck. Since I wanted Green Bay to win today, there was no way I was smoking a "Packer" today.
Enough with the chatter
, here's some pron:
Although I was happy with the results, I'll be happy to return to whole packers as I miss having burnt ends.
