Brisket Knife Gashes Suck!!!
Nothing like spending $30 on a piece of meat to open it up and find huge gashes that you absolutely cannot see in the cryo pack. I did two practice briskets today, and both of them were hacked up pretty bad. This seems to be a bigger problem with briskets from Sam's and Walmart.
I am gonna have to get them elsewhere because I dont want to buy briskets for the comps coming up and have them all mangled up by some guy at the packer who has absolutely no pride in his work.
Of course I suppose if I spent all day every day cutting up the same section of a cow I might go into autopilot myself.
