Our brisket cuts are whole briskets sliced into two pieces: the point cut and the flat cut. If you have a preference of which you're seeking, please indicate in the order notes which you'd prefer so we can best try to meet your needs. Please also note if your preference is not available if you'd like the other cut or request the item be removed from your order.
Many folks purchase a brisket with classic BBQ in mind. Because the brisket comes from the chest of the animal, it is a muscle that is worked and muscles that are worked more can be quite tough. However, with a little TLC, it can be delicious, tender, and desirable with a deep beef flavor.
You can choose to prepare your brisket many ways. For those that have a smoker: you know what to do. Otherwise, just make sure as a rule of thumb to go with low temperatures for a long period of time: 8-12 hours. Make sure when cooking in liquid or braising to provide at least a few hours so the meat has time to break down the collagen fibers throughout the roast.
