I'll pull them out 2 day's before I plan on cooking so I can let them sit a full day in the fridge.. then season the next morning and then cook the following. Has always worked for me

I usually leave them in the fridge at least 3 days to thaw. It doesn't hurt them to leave longer. If they are in the vacuum sealed bags it just wet ages them.

I do leave it in the vacuum bag until I open it to season it. Then I normally wrap it good in a pan.

If you don't have a smoker, how else can you cook a brisket?

Kosher salt pepper Liquid Smoke wrap it in foil put in the Liquid Smoke put in the oven 225 and let her cook.
If you have a Weber or a little smokey you can do it that way too haven't done it on a regular Grill. Find some YouTube videos and that'll help you out. Where there's a brisket there's a way

When they get cheap like that I buy a couple and grind into hamburger. Ground brisket makes one of the finest hamburgers there is.

You move to New York and make corned beef with it while writing apology letters to everyone you knew in Texas for embarrassing the state with that question

Ain't no need to be ugly. And for the record!

It will be a cold day in Hotel Echo Lima Lima before you'd ever get me to live in NY.

Hmmm. Maybe we should hit Home Depot also and see if there are an smokers on sale.

Up here its $2.49-3.29/lb..... On a $10-15lb brisket over 5-6 briskets it adds up.

I've picked up 4 so far. I usually buy Prime for smoking, so these will be ground with bacon ends and packaged for hamburger meat.

Also found a rack of ribs marked at 3.48 mixed in with the others

It's $1.96 at HEBs in Victoria and Yoakum. Still a good price, but I'd prefer $1.47. I'll still pick up at least one to grind with venison for burger.
