    About to try my first brisket- sort of

    After having tried just about everything else that can go in my smoker, I'm finally ready to take the plunge and try a brisket. Unfortunately, brisket is quite hard to find around here and the best I could do was half a brisket from a small butcher shop. It hasn't been separated into flat and point, but was pretty much cut down the middle. So what I've got is a fairly think hunk of flat and point, with the thinner flat portion gone to another lucky customer.

    Would you suggest I separate the flat and point portions of this chunk, or just throw it on as is?

    I think in that case I would be tempted to separate them, since you don't have the dedicated flat portion for slicing you can make your own by separating. That's just me on a whim, hard to say if I seen the chunk if I'd end up doing it but probably.
