I have a feeling that a "whole brisket" might just be a flat with no fat cut off. It was busy as hell when I was there and couldn't get any of of their attention, but I'll check it out next time.
I think I'm gonna start with flats until I can find a good source of packers in Atlanta. The fat cap looked pretty decent on the ones I saw, and I'll give them a good mopping every hour, plus bacon if I have to. I'm in the medical field, so I'm used to dealing with lack of sleep, although I avoid it when I have to :D
Go to any Sam's in the Atlanta area and they have "choice" grade packers. I get mine from the Sam"s out in Hiram for $2and change per pound. They usually have several to choose from. I try to get a "right-Handed" one if I can.

I would go hot and fast with a whole packer. It's usually a lot cheaper per lb than flat, and using hot and fast, you can have it done (even up to 16lb) in 5 hours or less

I still haven't had the stones to try hot and fast with pork, but it's the only way I do brisket now!

LOL, I was confused too. In my mind I said "Saiko?!?! First Brisket?!?! What about the hot and fast...?!?!"
