Diamond A briskets are cut "packer" style, weighing approximately 14 lbs. They include both the point and the flat and are a great cut for slow smoking and BBQing. In Texas, barbecue means brisket!
***For shipping purposes - we ask that you purchase 20 additional pounds of other cuts in order to fill the box.
Brisket is a beef cut taken from the breast section of the steer beneath the first five ribs. Consequently, brisket is a large cut of meat that is tough by nature and streaked with fat. As brisket cooks, the fat breaks down and dissolves into the meat, this is one of the things that makes smoked brisket so good!
