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!

View this 13.12 pound, USDA Choice brisket from all sides by using the controls below.



Fat Side:  

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.
