Topic of discussion

The full brisket cook. When is it best to separate the flat from the point?  This discussion came up among Yoder Smokers owners, here are there thoughts:

Hunter R. says you can separate the flat from the point before the cook. “You can trim the fat to your preference (on both pieces) . . . they will finish about the same time that way.”

Case C. said, “Separate at the stall then wrap to finish.”

Eric C. differed, he said that cooking them together is better and added, “If you’re doing burnt ends, take the flat to your desired temp then pull and separate.”

Ry A. has done it both ways.  He said, “Together makes the flat more moist.”
