The elusive Brisket

Postby YorkshireSmoker » 20 Jul 2017, 16:06

Hi All.
Try as I might I cannot get a decent brisket from a local Yorkshire butcher. All I seem to get are grass fed lumps of toughness with little or no fat content or fat covering. I have had some success but not the mind blowing butter texture I got from the USDA packer cut I tried when I was in the states.
I like to cook the whole thing, point and flat, at the same time.
Anyone got any ideas where I can source a decent packer cut?

Talk to James at

If he hasn't got USDA get the Aussie brisket, just as good.

Either James or Mark Burley Both do excellent BBQ cuts and can source the best quality USDA or Aussie briskets. Can personally vouch for Bob as won a selection of ribs from the last BBQ magazine which were all excellent. And he even threw in a tub of A&O Moomami
