Default Brisket Flat - Not cooking a packer today!

I'm not sure why but I seem to have a lot of luck on my 3rd try on pretty much anything I BBQ. Tonight the same thing applied to a choice brisket flat. Up till now, I've had quite a bit of luck with whole packer briskets but had cooked up practically inedible flats in my first 2 tries of flats alone. Granted those tries came a couple of years ago on my electric smoker and I really didn't have a clue what I was doing (pre-Brethren and pre-Egg days).

Neverless, I decided it was time to redeem myself. That and I wanted brisket and didn't want to cook a packer brisket as I believe that cooking food that can be tied back to a sports team brings that team bad luck. Since I wanted Green Bay to win today, there was no way I was smoking a "Packer" today.

Enough with the chatter , here's some pron:



Although I was happy with the results, I'll be happy to return to whole packers as I miss having burnt ends.

Maybe you have been buying those mismarked "choice" packers at S&F that were really "select".

Brisket looks great.

Thanks Chris! I wish I had your brisket tutorial years ago! It has been one of the most helpful threads for me since joining the Brethren.

John that is a great looking flat! Sorry about the lack of burnt ends but, that's just an excuse to have to make another one.

John, you will have to send some brisket to Judge Jim so I can certify the results of your cook.

Dang John, you are impressing the heck out of me, you are looking like a real vet at smoking.

Looks like you do a fine job on a flat. Would like to see a pic of your burnt ends when you do a packer.
