I have the pit going today. Have a brisket smoking, something I haven't done in a while. No special occasion this time. Just me and 'K.' I bought a much smaller one this time but spent quite a bit more per pound by buying a 'prime' brisket. I never buy the expensive cuts of brisket. I buy the biggest I can find so I can't afford 80-90 bucks for a piece of meat. I think the way I cook them evens the playing field. I get a lot of compliments every time. Always most, always tender and plenty of smoke. This 'prime' cut was bought on a whim. Smaller cut but paid as much as I do for the larger cuts. Since it will be just the wife and I enjoying it the smaller ones were only prime cuts. So I said 'why not?' I will cook it my usual method and see if I can see if there is any difference in the taste etc. I know the few times I have had other types of 'prime' cuts there is a significant difference. It is not something we do often due to the price. We are generally happy with the lesser cuts. I'm out, gotta check on the fire.
