The choice grade would give you more fat. That is how it works more fat is more tender. Trimming is personal preference. I trim the outside, but leave it in between the flat and the point.I also leave a little more than you did on the outside. You can decide how much you like when you taste the results. You can expect a whole bunch of different opinions on this one. This is just mine.Good luck with your cook.
