Expensive brisket

Discussion in 'Beef' started by time2fly, Jul 1, 2010.

  1. I had heard somewhere there is a " choice" cut of brisket that is the best /most expensive cut you can get-costs something like 80 to 100 bucks-- anyone got any idea what the name of the cut is?? It has a specific name they call it

    I believe you are referring to a Wagyu Brisket.Very spendy but suppose to be very good.

    I'm with Rbrans on this one. I think that you have the Wagyu Beef in mind I have heard that they could get up that around 100.00 for a brisket. If I could find one I would get one. But I can't find and the wife would probably shoot me anyway.

    No-No, not the Wagyu Brisket!

    I think it's called "The No-Way Brisket!"[​IMG]

    SRF has a ~14lb American Wagyu brisket for $60 + S&H. Which comes out to about $4.20/lb. Around HERE, Choice briskets sell for $3-n-change per pound. 

    Seems like a decent deal to me.

    However someone nearby (about 20 miles) posted a Prime brisket for $2.49/lb, which is killer (for our area). 
  7. Thanks for all the replys fellas- it was the "dreaded wagyu" I was thinking of

    If I had the $$$$ to get the Brisket I would be afraid to smoke it. I might do something wrong...

    Wow if I had $100.00 I would just buy brisket at wal-mart or sam's or ?? and that way I would not shake as I smoked it... LOL


    Good smoking...

    No biggie - I just did almost $100 worth of Prime steak this evening. All went well. [​IMG]

    If you don't try, you'll never know how/what it tastes like.
