[Costco] GTA - Beef brisket $8.99/kg AAA

For the GTA folks, I was at Costco at Elgin Mills and 404 earlier today, they had whole beef brisket for $8.99kg, AAA. That's a really good price and haven't seen it this low for a while.

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Approximately how many lbs or percentage of a whole is the point? Wondering if it’s worth it to buy this than a few lbs of just the point at 17$/kg at a butcher. I only want the point.

Being a newbie to brisket, is there a good resource out there to better explain the different parts, how to shop for it and how best to trim etc?

As far as I know there’s two parts. Flat which is lean and the point which is fatty. Point is worlds better than flat imo

amazingribs.com. Meathead is the go-to for most who want to learn how to smoke a Texas-style brisket. Very analytical and lots of explanation. Also has a very interesting article that convinced me to stop resting steaks after cooking.

If you have a smoker. You need to watch this youtube video. 3 videos total. Well worth it

Franklin BBQ in texas. This place has lines starting at 6am at his bbq joint. Sells out everyday after lunch. Smokes over 100 briskets a day + ribs and more.

Honestly brisket I have to say meat quality is number one to determine tenderness..

Briskets through instant pot or pressure cookers would help with the cooking.
