You won't regret it Steeb. I just cooked my first fatty weekend before last and it was awesome eating. At least what little I had of it.
The wife was on the phone earlier tonight with one of her friends and I overheard her talking about that cook, the fatty and how it was, "The best damn sausage she ever ate."
There are two waiting for tomorrow's cook. Pictures pending...
Maybe I'll get more than a bite or two this time.
Good luck with your first brisket.
