Default Is this a packer?

I picked this up at BJs, they don't tend to have brisket larger than 9lbs, usually it looks like just the flat at around 6-7lbs, this is 8lbs, but it looks like a packer to me, but I have only worked with 2 briskets so far ;)

The label looks like it says beef brisket flat. Is it the same thickness throughout? If so, it is probably a flat. A whole packer usually has half of it about twice as thick as the rest.

Kind of hard to tell from your picture, I don't see a recognizable point. Doesn't mean it's not there, just can't distinguish from your pictures.

Thanks, it looks like a "baby packer" as said, yes the point side it about 1.5x thicker than the flat end, I'll post some picks of the cook tomorrow.

My guess is that it's a flat, but the packing house left some of the point on it.

Packer: the two pockets of hard fat in picture 1 are a dead give away you wont see that on a market trim flat.

I just cooked one just like it today.... I got it from Sams and it was a packer cut, just quite a bit smaller than what we cook for comps. It turned out great!
