1. I propose a traveling trophy
2. Must be select grade full packer, proof of select grade
3. Iím not going to make a recommendation on cookers
But everything cooked outside- no kitchens no kitchen ovens

Thatís three recommendations, reckon thatís controversial enough. Iím going to look for my select brisket just in case it happens.

I also suggest salt and black pepper as the only seasonings

Crap, I was at Walmart on Monday and just happen to walk by the meat section and spied two huge briskets. No markings so I assumed they were select at $2.97 a pound. One was 17.5 pounds and had the thickest flat end I have ever seen almost 2" thick across the entire end and nicely marbled. Kicking myself for not getting it. I wonder if it is still there?

My bet is it is still there. I've only seen the Select grade getting cleared out by Walmart personnel themselves when they are near expiration. No one is making a run at them

Oh, apparently I'm committed for sure, as the wife just picked one up at wal-mart. I'll do it tonight or tomorrow, depending on how tired I get after work.

My reply- regardless of USDA grade go thru the bin and select a no larger than 12# with a thick even flat, a point about the size of 3/4 cantaloupe really nice white fat and if you cradle it in your hands itíll be kind of floppy like a new puppy.

She sent me a text. If you want a brisket you come pick it out. :-))

Time in.

Iím in for a select brisket cook. Sounds fun
Your wife is funny! I've encountered some briskets at HEB in Texas that I can't find a marking on, so I'm never sure if they are select or choice (primes are definitely marked in another bin). Anyway, many of these definitely meet your description of "floppy like a puppy". None of the Costco primes I buy are like that - way too much hard fat on them. I have noticed, however, that many of these floppy packers have smaller points.

Since I don't have my smoker when I'm there, I haven't tried them yet. But once I move, I will be doing a side by side on the floppy HEB packers vs. the primes.

There is a grade that is unmarked canít recall but think itís like Butchers Grade or Store Grade, also my Walmart back during the beef shortage a few years back had brisket from Canada- there is a Canadian grading system though different and not very prominent. The way I select a brisket grading really doesnít play into it- 100%. All things being equal side by side and cost difference is minimal Ill bump up, but the things Ive mentioned above havenít failed me yet.

Yup - try to find Thick Floppy Flats and a Point that isn’t a Ball of Fat. Usually if the Point feels Hard/Solid it’s more Fat than Meat.......
