how to properly trim your brisket?

  • Trimming is a basic piece of any brisket since it influences the whole cooking process. It ensures that your dry rub and your smoke can penetrate the meat and build a perfect bark.
  • When selecting your brisket look for a brisket with a uniform thickness. This will give you nice, thick cuts across the meat.
  • Use a decent tight curved boning blade for trimming the brisket.
  • If you don't trim any fat off the brisket it will taste excessively greasy, however trimming too much will make your brisket dry. Aim for around 1/4″ of fat.
  • Brisket is considerably less demanding to trim when it's as yet chilly so trim it directly after you remove it from the ice chest or fridge.
  • There is a thick film called the deckle that won't render out amid cooking which you have to remove.
  • Trim off any bits which are fundamentally thinner than the rest as they will cook too quickly and will burn.
  • Consider where the warmth will originate from and how the brisket will be put on your cooking surface. Regions that run more blazing can have somewhat more fat to help secure the meat.
  • So long as you leave around 1/4″ of fat and get a decent shape don't stress excessively over trimming. Careful discipline brings about promising results.
