22# is the largest SRF from Buckhead Beef in Atlanta. I prefer the 18# for comps and home. At home I use Walmart briskets.

Was that the one I brought to the 1st Kristie's contest? If not, do you remember that beast? I think it was right at 23 lbs.

We had a 25 pounder once and it looked like that Africa stone the world's strongest men used to carry around :) It needed a lot of trimming though.

21.2, and it did not come out good. The end closest to the point did not get done and the other end was falling apart on the smoker. It was a select grade. I like CAB around 15#

I'm fine with anything above 12 as long as it has a really thick flat but 15 lbs seems to be the size where you are pretty much assured of that.

Biggest: 21# Prefer 14-16 lbs. I like the thickness of the flats I tend to find in that range, though it is hit and miss with CAB. Any bigger than 16 lbs and odds are it won't fit on the WSM.
