Default So a fresh Brisket

As an earlier post stated its hard to find meat in Finland, I acquired a brisket about 6lbs so not very big. But it is fresh (about 8 days from kill) not aged and I am expected to smoke it this weekend. My question is how can i get better tenderness since it is so fresh?

I'm guessing the same way you would do a regular brisket... with similiar results..

I have never cooked meat that fresh before but this might give you some insight - at least a place to start:

Freeze it the ice crystals that form will help tenderize it by causing microscopic cuts in the muscle fibres of you can inject it with a weak papaya juice solution the night before cooking.
