I have seen a couple of posts where they seperate the point and flat and trim the thick fat from between the two pieces. Then place the point back on the flat in its original position and cook that way. It makes the packer smaller and still cooks like a packer instead of cooking them seperately. Hope that make sense.

I did some searches and read on the bullet site where Keri C. suggested cutting a chunk off the point end off a long packer and cooking it besides all that's left for better fit on a little wsm. I've done it, and it works great. You leave all of the point that's on the flat alone. The benefits are two-fold: the brisket fits better on a wsm rack, and the point cooks faster. Ideally, the point needs more time to render anyway, and this way you can use that cut off chunk for burnt ends.

There is only one time I have ever endorsed cutting them in half. Thats when you have an event where you simmered them in a STRONG beef stock with juniper berries, bay leaves and worchestershire, then cut them, season them and throw them on..... WITH ABOUT 200 SIMILAR PIECES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Furthermore you don't actually cut in half... the point/falt section you find and cut that in half with the larger portion being the flat tip and part of the point as well. If you do this then dont even cut out the hard fat.

In essense then... unless you want to make these adjustments.... don't do it. :-)

Thanks everyone. Appreciate the help. Today I'm smoking only a flat, that's all I could get my hands on.
