Oh man this is farkin' spooky. Like deja voodoo all over again. I bought the exact same corned flats at Sams. I intentionally selected 4 pound ones and they were both just like yours, some flat, some point and had the split through about halfway. I thought about splitting them, but left mine in one piece.
I did a 48 hour soak out and smoked them at 250° with pecan to 150° internal, then did a 20 minute pressure finish, with natural release.
It was kind of nice getting some point and flat, harder to carve, but nice. Two days ago I promised the other one for a giving away, I wish I knew then what I know now.
