    The point from a small packer will not feed 4-5 people plus you and your wife.

    I don't know why your question made me think of that movie line.

    buy a packer. Cook the point, and turn the flat into pastrami!

    Lately I've seen a lot more brisket flats than packers for sale. I can't say I've ever seen a point for sale, unless it was a corned one around St. Patrick's Day.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'm rolling with the majority and getting a smaller whole packer. Who doesn't like leftovers?

    I also support the small packer option. I regularly see 10-12 lb packers at Costco.

    Plus, left overs!

    Just get a small packer it will take about the same time as a large flat. You will have planned overs that you can freeze or eat the next day. It will still be delicious.

    I cooked a 9 lb Packer for a party of 10. They can be found. Yes there is leftover but it is manageable.

    WHile I would agree with SMOG MAN on the packer and leftovers, I would LIKE to agree with scottranda except that it is VERY HARD to find people selling just the point. Maybe you can find them, I can't. It is pretty darn easy to buy just the flat though. It is leaner and a touch trickier. I routinely low and slow the packers but I am a fan of sous vide-a q when it is just the flat. Always tender and you can get a decent smoke flavor with liquid smoke and a fine bark with 3-4 hours on the smoker. You can also even get a nice faux smoke ring in the sous vide by adding pink curing salts. It still feels like cheating to me but the results are stellar.
