Default Brisket

Do you separate your packer before cooking?

We do it before slicing and making the burn ends.

I always cook completely before separating. I believe the flat next to the point is normally the best of the flat.

You can only make a poll if you are a paid member.

We cook whole then separate.

I separate before cooking. I have had good results so far. I only have a few comps under my belt, but have done a good bit of practice and I prefer to do it this way. It gives me the ability to control the doneness of the two pieces of meat individually.

I may be wrong, but I see them as two different cuts of meat that cook differently.

I trim but cook as one but have watched a few winning teams separate and cook individually as they feel the meats cook differently.
