Default Aged and ready, H&F?

I have 4 Prime packers in the frig, 3 are at 40 days and 1 is at 34 days. I'm just about to freeze for later cooks and was thinking of trying my First Hot and Fast on one of them.

I have read the brisket threads as well as the opinions on H&F cooking, and have a few questions.

1. would anyone consider this a possible waste of a Prime brisket, due to the risk of failure?

2. with the added marbling in the prime, would you think it needs an injections?

No way this is a waste of a brisket! But I always inject when I do h&f brisket use about 16 ounces of Campbell's beef consume let it marinate about 8 hrs in the fridge , rub of choice and run it at 325 for 3 hrs wrap for 2 more hrs wrap in a blanket for at least an hour and serve . You will not be dissapointed

Also vote no to both questions. I'm a big fan of H&F but have never injected a brisket. Been wrapping when IT hits 160 (using foil but am gonna try butcher paper for the next one).

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it. Three went to the freezer and I will be smoking the other one next Saturday.

I will try to remember to take pics of the full cook, or at least of the end product, no matter how it goes. Going with the s&p rub (first for me) and the occasional spritz of something.
