Well the second brisket was okay but certainly not stellar. It was 14 lbs. It seemed trimmed quite a bit. The area around the deckle was already cut out big time, so much less trimming than I usually do. Anyhow once out of the package I found some parts that were dried out, brown. Looked like freezer burn somewhat. I trimmed that off. But I could tell there wan't much marbling.

Anyhow the point was great. The flat was a bit dry. I put some of the rendered fat and juices on it when I sliced to bring to the party.

As usual I got tons of praise, best brisket they've had. But I know it wasn't up to my standards. Oh well, I think I'll keep trying to find choice. I've never seen prime around here.
