Alton Brown, when cooking a brisket, advised to cut the smaller end off and make it into a soup. So here is the soup we made from the brisket tip! We LOVE this soup!! **NOTE** The amount of water you need depends on how high you boil the soup, and how concentrated you want your broth. please taste the soup through the cooking process, add more water if you think it needs it
