Buddy did a brisket for the 4th. Fresh fatty brisket is amazing. Sorry, ate some before taking pics.


#104

That looks so perfect! You have good friends. :slight_smile:


#105

That is a mighty fine looking brisket.


#106

What to do with leftover brisket…


#107

This! Whenever we make a brisket we always order pho the next day and hold the meat so we can add our leftovers. It’s perfect.

After encouragement from @A5KOBE and @Ns1, I’ve moved into beef short rib territory. The only thing holding me back has been my family of pork rib lovers. For NYE, I picked up 4 racks of beef plate short ribs. Got them home and trimmed them of the fat cap and silver skin…

Put them on my BGE for about 5-6 hours at 250°…



I probably could have left them on longer, but they were amazing. Next time. My wife using the leftovers the next night for chili was genius.


#109

Where did you end up sourcing the meat?


#110

Beef Palace in HB. They have them frozen.


#111

thanks for the info, would you happen to know the price?


#112

Yeah. I went in with $180 and had to use their in-house ATM for the first time. Total for 12 ribs (4 racks) was about $230. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.


#113

Do you know what the price per lb was? I’ve been looking for this type of cut and haven’t had much success in North OC.


#114

Have you tried Gem Meats? I thought about checking there because my son’s mom lives right there, but I knew BP had them.

My cost was about $12/lb. at Beef Palace.


#115

Good call I’ll try Gem next time.

I’ve been getting the short ribs on the bone in much smaller pieces from Whole Foods at $8.99/lb. When they go on sale at $5.99/lb I buy out the whole rack basically.


#116

I think last time I was at Restaurant Depot it was something like $150 for 2 racks.

Speaking of which…

Restaurant Depot
1265 N Kraemer Blvd

Don’t you have to own a restaurant?


#118

hm good point…they also let in nonprofit organizations :slight_smile:

There’s also a Costco Business Center in Westminster - closer to you than HB at least.


#119

That is some sexy que. #TeamBovine

What wood did you use?


#120

Cherry. I should add that I sprayed after the first few hours with a combination of apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and worcestershire (4:4:1:1).
