It doesn't see right that they cut off a quarter of a brisket. I'll try and take a picture of a full brisket so you know what it looks like.
That's how the brisket came. I'm guessing they cut the flat off to make it a smaller piece. I'll call next week to ask (complain) and see what they say.
It's on the smoker now, so we'll see.
