Packer Prime Beef Brisket Advice
« on: May 18, 2017, 07:15:58 PM »
All,

S1 - Little Guy Owner

Soliciting some advice on how best to go about smoking my #13 Packer Prime Beef Brisket I just got at Costco.  It is untrimmed so figure maybe #11-12 on the smoker weight.

I am assuming I need to cut in half and smoke on two racks?

What is the best way to cut and smoke this baby on my S1?

Just checked and your racks are 12x13. I suspect your packer is a little longer than that, but how much longer? One possibility might be to place it diagonally and put a empty soda can or maybe even empty veggie can, ( a little bigger than the coke can.) if this would allow it to stay in one piece great, if not, it's one to store in memory for use one day maybe. You can search YouTube for separating point from flat and watch how that's done or you can just cut it in half, I've done it both ways. One thing for sure is your going to come out with one or Two hunks of "goodness!" Be sure and take and post pictures.

lay your rack on top of the brisket, cut off part of the flat to get it to fit, grind that trimed piece for burger.

And if the flat is thin enough, you could fold it over/under just enough to fit.

A month late... but I cut the brisket in half. Put the flat fat side up on the top rack. Put the point fat side down on a rack below. I put a temp probe in both pieces, and go for 195 in the flat, and 200-205 in the point. Because of the way they are arranged in the smoker, they both seem to get to their temps at about the same time.
