    3lb Brisket

    Good Day Folks!! Hope everyone is doing well!

    I have never done a brisket and was wondering if trying with a 3lb flat is worth the trouble. Something like this

    Thanks and have a blessed day!!

    I have never ordered anything from Wild Fork but $8.48/lb for a small (not prime) beef brisket flat is a lot of money. Let us know what you decide to do.

      I have ordered from them and the things I have received are of good quality. Was really using as an example.

        Getting good results with a small flat is going to be more difficult than with a whole brisket, imho. If you just want to experiment with getting the rub and bark the way you want it, I'd say go for it.

          Yeah was wondering if it was worth the time being so small
          I will ponder on it

        I've done 3-6lbers a few times.
        I'll toss on a port shoulder to cook with it so for me it was worth it.
        Should be a quick cook if I remember correctly 5-7 hours

          For me it would depend on the flat. Lean flats can easily dry out. If I had a lean one, I'd be inclined to corn it and use it either as corned beef or to make pastrami out of it. A well marbled flat should work fine. Of course you won't end up with 3lb of finished product, more like 1.5 to 2.

            Since it is so small, I suggest you cook it in the crock pot with Lipton onion soup mix and a can of Cream of Mushroom soup. That way it will be tender, delicious, and not dried out or wasted.
