the briskets they sell there i have no idea if they are flats or packers? one side is all fat
Just ask the meat manager.
If he doesn't know, the look at the weight. 3 or 4 lbs will be a flat; 7 or more likely a small packer. If you can find 10 lbs or more get that.
Look for a piece of meat with a consistent thickness. Many will taper off into a very thing cut and that will just try out..
