Talking Brethren, if I die by tomorrow, this is why...

So it was approaching dinner time and I needed to come up with something. The family had been living off of brisket, pork, beans, etc, all the 4th stuff I started cooking up last Tuesday that went through Monday. The last couple nights, they have not been wanting any of the leftovers.

The last thing I cooked was this particular brisket flat right here. It went longer than expected and I pulled it off at 3am. I had been up many nights already and just wanted to be done. So I bagged up this brisket flat whole to deal with later.

Today was later.

Now, even I have been having a little trouble smiling at the thought of another brisket sandwich after over a week of having it morning, noon and night practically. However, the bark was calling to me. I really wanted to eat some of the brisket to taste that heavenly bark. Every time I reached in to grab the flat to slice it and make a sandwich though, I had second thoughts and started thinking I would rather have something else.

Then it hit me. I already knew what I wanted. I just had to DO IT!

I took the brisket flat out of the fridge, still cold.



This is what I was really wanting...



So I started by trimming off the edges...



...and with a little knife work I wound up with a flat of meat, and a pile of bark...



I then flipped it all over so you could see what was left on the meat and the bark.



I did a quick rough chop on the bark, or burnt ends if you prefer...



...and grabbed a decent sized kaiser roll to put it on.



It looked like I would really need to pile the meat on...



I was able to get this much on the bun, which was about half of the burnt ends...



I was so farking happy about the whole thing I just bit right into it right there!



It was grand! So I took a second bite...



The third bite proved the kaiser bun was unworthy and could not tolerate this level of awesomeness.



So I grabbed a fork...



...and it kind of turned into a game of "eat just the meat".



By the end of the ordeal, just some crumbs of the kaiser roll remained.



I still have half of the shaved and chopped bark. I'm considering seconds.

The only reason you survived was because I didn't have my 9 to get ahead of you in line.

Did you feed your family, or just yourself?

And, you ate off a cutting board with a plastic fork. Do you live in a frat house?

Just myself. Like I said, the family wasn't interested in any more brisket or pork leftovers. So it was just me tonight. And yes, I ate right off the cutting board! It was great!

No, I am not waiting for a certificate, I hope to maintain my status as uncertified.

The title of this thread should be "Brethren, if I die tomorrow with a smile on my face, this is why..."

Nice looking meal!
