    Brisket Point Ideas?

    Hi Everyone, so I got a nice 9.9 pound (mid size?) brisket from Porter Road. I separated the point from the flat (about 4lbs) which is becoming corned beef for St. Patrick's day. So now what to do about the smallish point? I know about burnt ends and I do like them, but what other ideas do you all have for making something delicious with the well marbled point?

    Ok two things...

    First - pastrami? Or simply nicely smoked? mmmm point.

    Second - I have to ask give your form name and avatar... you're not by any chance the person behind https://twitter.com/EffinBirds are you?

      Yep, cure it, make pastrami, cool it down and slice it *thin*. Then slap a pile in a skillet or on a flattop, top it with some swiss or gruyere, chop it up and put it in a soft roll with Russian dressing or mustard and top with Kraut. Boom, Pastrami steak.

    Well, I just ground a 5 lb point for some nice thick brisket burgers. Vac sealed and waiting in the freezer.

        Cuban Beef sounds good from the recipes I read.

      Thank you rickgregory for the suggestions! While I am on Twitter, I have the same handle as here. I wish I were that creative!

        A friend of mine said that he had smoked pastrami burnt ends at a BBQ joint. Said they were fantastic.

          +1 on the pastrami. I bought corned beef points last year about this time. The pastrami they made was noticeably better than that made from flats. If I could only use one recipe from this site it would be the pastrami.

            I love to smoke it, then slice it thin and make brisket tacos. That is on the menu tonight at the cabin, actually. Gonna be good!

              Thank you all for the suggestions. I would love to do pastrami, but fridge space is tight and the flat that is in brine for corned beef is taking up the space I have, so I am going with smoking the point whole and then possibly making burnt part of it.

                Can't beat a good brisket sandwich, especially on homemade bread. That is what I just had for breakfast: Smoked wagyu point on toasted sourdough.

                  Guys he's making corn beef out of the flat, he could easily do pastrami from there. Making pastrami from the rest is somewhat redundant. Anyway, I'm going to go all Tex-Mex on this one. I actually have this on my radar screen;
