    I need to cook of 160 # of corned beef brisket for St Patty's day. In the past when cooking whole corned beef briskets I always felt the flat was overdone before the point was tender. This time I was thinking of removing the point, rolling and tying. Then braising them together but removing the flats first and cooking the points longer. Any thoughts?

    I cooked 200lbs a week  and well over a ton for the week on St Patty's for years, never had a problem. Lots of Guinness and extra pickling spice in the water.

    They cook the same together and I don't remove the Deckel until after cooking.
