Farnn: Treygreen13: Chart fails on the "best way to prepare brisket".[www.kickassbbq.com image 640x480]This is how you prepare brisket. Making stew out of brisket is a travesty.Not if you braise it correctly, in which case you can make it more tender than smoking. Just requires you brine it for 2 days, rinse it off and dry it and then sear it well. Braise in an airtight pan, mostly covered with wine or stock with aromatics first at 350 to get the liquid to simmer then lower the heat to 300-310 and cook for 3-4 hours. Let cool overnight without opening the lid/foil and then chill to harden the fat. Take off fat, reduce and then season sauce, slice brisket and reheat in the sauce when ready to eat. Don't even need a knife. Also, use second cut brisket because it has more fat inside the meat.

Making stew out of brisket is a travesty.Agreed.Hell, I'll braise it in the crock pot before defiling it in a stew.To be fair, corned beef brisket is different from just brisket. Or, are there people out there that would actually do that?*shudder*For the gentle person up thread who was talking about hanger steak. Those cuts, like brisket, or tounge etc were called "butcher" cuts because only the butchers would bring them home. All the "good" meat went in the window after all.used to be, if you could find oxtails outside an ethnic market, shiat was cheap as hell. So yeah, you either need to go to good grocery store or a stand alone butcher shop, or a ethnic grocery store. Find a good one and become a regular. They eventually will stop staring at the gringo.which reminds me, I've been on a carribian cooking kick lately. Need to make some oxtail stew.We buy our beef by the half or whole (depending on the price, how much room I have, etc. My parents farm, so getting a good deal on a critter that I know is high quality isn't difficult). The nice thing about doing that is that you get to specify how you want it cut, and you get ALL of the animal, even parts you wouldn't have thought about. That's how I first got introduced to oxtail, tongue, heart, and a few other cuts that I probably wouldn't have gone to a store and bought on a whim. Now the lockers know that we like those things, so I'll often get half a beef and it will come with 5 tongues and 4 hearts because a lot of people don't want them. Either that, or I'm buying some seriously mutated cattle.I'm a brewer by trade sir.. a man who makes his daily allowance via the sweet nectar of the malted Barley corn.for the past TWENTY YEARS all of our spent grain has gone to a guy we call "Farmer Jack"this dude has not paid a single dime for an ...
