How to Trim a Brisket Like Your Favorite BBQ Joint

There are A LOT of great videos online about how to trim a brisket, but I wanted to focus on those featuring ones done by BBQ joints (brick & mortar, pop-up, etc.). So far I've compiled 16 'How To' videos that should give you a good idea (and guide if you need one) on how to trim brisket like they do at their restaurants.

I will continue to add to this list as I run across new ones or ones I may have missed.
