If you've never seen or handled a whole packer-cut brisket before, then this "virtual brisket" is the next best thing to being there!

I like to trim the excess fat on a brisket down to 1/8" to 1/4". That amounted to 2 pounds, 1-1/2 ounces of fat from this brisket, for a pre-cooked weight of about 11 pounds.
Some folks don't trim as much fat as I do, but this is how I like to do it. You'll notice in some of the trimmed photos that I accidentally cut through the fat, exposing the meat below. I try to avoid doing that, but it happens and it won't ruin your brisket.
