I've got a quarter of a grass fed beef on order, but my producer doesn't separate front/hind quarter. I suspect I'll get half of the ribeye, half of the sirloin, etc. So I'm guessing I will not be able to get a full brisket.

I'm hoping I can though because I want to try smoking a grass fed brisket, despite some of the issues I've heard about it.

It is much healthier, and I think grass fed beef tastes much better than conventionally raised. Conventional beef needs to have high marbelized fat content to get any flavor at all. Grassfed, even though it doesn't have the fat content, has way more flavor, IMO. I don't know if it's the age at slaughter or what that makes that the case, but it's been my experience.

The environmental impact between the two types is a big time selling point as well for me.
