And there was a 17 lb. Prime behemoth of a brisket, a brisket of unusual size, for less than half of that per pound. You will not be surprised to hear that the ginormous brisket came home with me.
We had to cut it in half to fit it in our largest roasting pan, but fit it did. And dinner was lovely.
The remaining brisket was cut into four pieces for storage in the refrigerator, because we will be having this for dinner for quite some time. :)
