What I did find with a prime grade brisket is that I didn't have to worry about the edges scorching since the fat content kept it nice and moist. Taste and tenderness wise was the same thing as a choice grade brisket to me.
Now if I could get prime grade brisket at $2.58/lb I would be all over it in a heartbeat, but around this area prime grade brisket runs $5.00+/lb and that isn't worth it to me.
