Default Tiny Briskets

Walking through the warehouse store this morning, i noticed they had briskets for the first time since opening. They were small,not very thick, averaging around 5-6 lbs. and had the "great for bbq" stickers on them. Packed on the 16th and sell by the 30th. Figured if i held out, they might give them away. Anyone seen full briskets this small?

I'm wondering how many people are going to pick up a brisket because of the "great for bbq" sticker and cook it with direct heat on a gasser. I'm hoping they saw that america's test kitchen episode where they show you how to finish it in the oven.

The first time I had my butcher get me a "prime" grade brisket it was about 7 pounds, pretty small for a whole packer.

I did a 4.5lb prime packer once. Should have made burgers with it. Too small and flat was too thin.

My local Sams carries small flats just as you described. They cook up a bit quicker than a packer but taste just fine IMO. I was actually thinking of cooking one up this weekend if I get a chance.
