Default Flat

Do you have to cook a whole brisket or can you cook just a flat for a comp? All I can find here are flats. Juat asking. Is their another name for a brisket like tri tip and such? How would it be labeled in the store?

You can cook a whole or just a flat. A tri-tip is different. If you are going to turn in slices for a KCBS, look for a thick flat.
Just my .02.

Fremont Meat Market in Fremont, Nebraska is our meat sponsor for comps (shameless plug mod) . All they have are flats. Look for a fairly large flat, one that will still be fairly good sized after trimming some hard fat and such and cut on the bias after cooking.

I can't remember cooking a tri-tip when I didn't at least ask myself the proverbial "what if"...

Flat's are just fine, just be sure not to get one that's been completly trimmed of fat. That's how the flat's come around here, gotta have some fat on it or you'll have leather!
