I'm doing some testing this winter with Waygu vs Prime Angus. I ran Angus this year and was very happy with two 1st's, 7 top 10's and a perfect 180. I am comfortable with my profiles with Creekstone Prime Angus Briskets.

My curiosity is getting the better of me so I want to cook some waygu. I would like to get some information on whether certain commercially rubs work only with one type or do they interchange regardless of the breed of beef,

Injetion and the liqquid base used information is welcomed as well.

Thanks In Advance!

Why don't you tell us what rubs you're using and we can tell you if they work good with Waygu or not? :wink::-P

Actually, I think DJ should post his entire process, so we can all get a baseline of how he will be cooking the brisket.

I like the Kosmos Q Beef rub as well as Plowboys Bovine Bold.

I hear that seasoned salt is pretty good (couldn't pass that up).

Although there is probably a slight difference, your injection is probably going to dictate taste more than anything. With that in mind, it probably doesn't matter, unless you don't inject.

I have cooked a lot of both and to me they are both beef brisket, nothing more or less. Wagyu does have more marbling, but I never noticed any major difference in spice need based on that difference.

I can not imagine a need to alter the seasonings between the two.

But......what do I know :oops:

Well, I've pretty much trusted my Butcher all Year. and I like it when I tag team him with a certain Plowboy.........

And I damn sure don't use Morton's Seasoned Salt! Like some judge claimed to identify in a BBQTV Video.....

I just got a Bottle of some kind of "Peppered Cow" Hmmm.. wonder if that stuff is any good???:mod:

Wagyu isn't a different species. It's beef, albeit better beef. :wink:

How fine or course do you grind the money before sprinkling it on the meat? :D

I've only once cooked a prime angus, but I switched to waygu last year. Cook them the same as a choice angus. Go by feel not temp for doneness, IMO.

Beef is beef like what was said earlier so all good beef rubs like Smokin Guns Hot will work great.

I personally enjoy sticking my beef with needles. :twisted:

I use exactly the same rubs and process on Wagyu or CAB - no difference. I have gotten calls with both. Wagyu gives you a little edge, but it's not a magic bullet. Since the OP was doing well with Creekstone Prime, he would probably do well with Wagyu too. If your brisket sucks, your Wagyu brisket will suck too, and it will be an expensive sucking brisket. :becky:

I just love the marbling on the Wagyu.

At least here in the frozen northeast, RD CAB is $3+ a pound, so Wagyu isn't THAT much more expensive - maybe double a CAB, and not that much more than Prime. ($5.25-$5.50 from a distributor) If you are lucky enough to live where brisket is cheap, I guess it would seem like a hefty premium.
