Default Question on separating the flat and point...

So I wanna do a packer cook. Like usual I will cook the packer, separate the point and make burnt ends.

Has anyone cooked the packer and then separated the point before the packers done? Like let it cook till its bout 180 IT and then separate.

That way I can cook the burnt ends for like 3-4 hours without adding a FULL 3-4 hrs to the cook.

I asked a similar question in the past.

Everyone said to leave the flat attached to the point, until the flat is done.
I think the main reason was to keep the falt from drying out.
Also, you should let the flat rest before slicing... and that's a god time to let the burnt ends cook.

If u leave it attached till the flat is done, it won't need but 1-2 hrs to finish your burnt ends.

Agreed... Leaving it together as long as possible will yield the most optimal results for the flat before you may separate and add the point back to the pit.

I like a long cooler time on my flats. This usually matches the 3 hours or so I need to cook the point more, then cube it, and make BE's.

hmm ok. ill keep it on till the flat is done.

i still want to put the cubed pieces on for at least another 3 hours bc i plan on putting more rub/paste on them and i want the 'edges' of the ends to get real 'burnt' and barky.

but this does answer my Question. ill keep it together until the flat is done.

thanks all@

I would imagine you are cooking this brisket Low n' Slow? If so I'd cook it whole.

High Heat Brisket is another story, and I separate the point and flat and cook each until done.

I have never seen trimming that good. Do you do plastic surgery on the side?

The Flats look like Flank Steak when I'm finished shaving them!
