^^^^^ What Garrett says.
I cooked a flat yesterday Bludawg style which turned out great. I have very good success doing packets my way, but haven't been cooking flats since they rarely turned out well for me. This flat has convinced me to cook the next packer Bluedawg style. It is a much more relaxing method which produces mostly excellent results for all who try it.
My Texas hat's off to Bludawg for sharing this with us.
