And the two are separate muscles (the point and the flat) so they could be bought as a packer and separated?

@Murphy's Law answered you,
I would only add that it is easily separated because there is a layer of fat between them that clearly distinguishes both cuts

I was examining one closely at my local grocery store where I found that they have them...@$6.99/lb and that is what it looked like, thanks. I also helped my neighbor cut up a deer a few years ago and learned a lot about the muscle groups and separating them. Before that it was all new to me. One thing that I have started doing is trimming most of the fat and rendering tallow in a crock pot. I render the lard on pork as well and use that for making pie crusts.

Was visiting in North Dallas TX during Memorial Day. Was pleased to see Thom Thumb had coupon for Packer Briskets at 1.69 per pound. Kroger had them for 2.49 per pound sale. Nephew smoked his first brisket in his Ironwood 650 with my learnings from this forum. It was a from Krogers - 19 pound packer at 2.49 per pound). It was very good.

Sadly when I returned to Michigan the Packers are all 4.59 to 6.00 per pound. I usually shop Costco and Sams and was used to seeing Packers for 3.48 to 4.28 per pound depending if they were choice or prime. Looks like the prices are up in Michigan. When /if they reduce in price will have to fill my son's freezer with brisket. It is still filled well with frozen turkeys discounted after Thanksgiving and Hams after Christmas.

Anyone know any good packet brisket pricing in SE Michigan now. If not the 20 pound smoked turkey was great. Brined it for 48 hours. Neighbor who buys Honey Baked Smoked Turkey tried it and said it was better then his last Honey Baked Smoked Turkey. He might be smart like a fox and setting me up to cook his next Christmas Turkey :cool:

Could have just stuck it in the freezer. Once you learn the quirks of your pit and get ready to try one, try it like this video.
Almost foolproof method.

Tonight is only my second cook but I did see that video. It makes it look sooooooo easy.. 😵‍💫
When I do get a brisket, that will be the method I try.

Ya no kidding! That’s what I paid for my choice brisket last month. Lucky I found the month long ad at my local grocery store.
