Default 17 pound brisket (or so they told me) Need Help

All,

I am having some friends over tomorrow and thought cooking a brisket would be great. I have cooked a few packers and found a local "meat packing plant" that sold brisket. So I figured why not give it a try. I asked for a brisket with the fat cap, point, and flat.

Attached are the images of the "brisket" I got. I can identify the fat cap but I have no idea what else is going on. If anyone could lend some advice that would be great!

In this image the brisket is completely laid out. You can easily see the fat cap but have no idea what that on the side is. Maybe they trimmed the deckle/point and that is it on the side?



In this Image the Brisket is folded a bit on top of its self.

There we go, sorry about the size. Really I wanted the picture to be as large and ridiculous as the brisket I just got.

I paid $40 dollars. But on the flip side of the fat cap there is no point, just the flat.

Welp, just because it ain't pretty doesn't mean it won't taste good! Smoke it up!

They were that. Thanks for reducing them.

I'm sure you can cook it like a brisket or a chuck roast, but will have to chop or pull some of the weirder sections.

That meat's just not right.

Looks like plate/navel esp on the left. Would make a good pastrami. The darker color is from an older animal. Throwing ppl off a little cause it doesn't look like a commercial steer. But it'll do excellent for pastrami. Don't know if I'd go back to that butcher though.

Hmmm, either way, with the amount of fat I see, you should have no problem going low and slow or hot and fast. Good luck & post pics.
