Default Wet aged frozen Brisket

OK so it not ideal but the short story is I ended up with 2 black Angus prime frozen wet aged brisket. I have a comp coming up in a couple of weeks and was wondering if others have used brisket that had been frozen or if I would be better off buying 2 fresh ones.

Just wondering about quality of frozen since I have ever cook a brisket that was frozen.

Thanks for the help

You should be ok to use those briskets, just let them thaw out properly in the refridgerator, about 5 days before the contest.

My briskets for Lexington and Roc City are both in the freezer..........chicken and ribs too. If I could find some butts worth a damn, they would be also.

It is for lexington that is why I was trying to figure it out now so I could go with plan B and I would still have to time to wet age if needed but I will just take them out of the freezer

Thanks for all the help I will stop by and say hi.

Ok, you got my interest.

Why do people freeze on purpose?

Thanks.

How long were they wet aged before they were frozen? If less than 20 days I'd get them in the fridge for a little more. Some people go up to 50 days. I go 35-40 days myself. They will be just fine!! If the cryo has a leak just trim them for the comp and reseal them.

How long do most people age there butts and chicken. I know on the beef the longer you let it wet age the tastier it is.

I don't think most do. Pork and chicken just go bad.

Amen brother - It seems like every time I freeze good meat, it turns out better than the fresh meat I Q. My accomplished Q buddy swears by freezing meat first - he says the process produces more tender meat.

I think it has something to do with the water in the muscle fibers freezing and expanding and rupturing the muscle fibers. That might make for a more tender brisket, just a guess!
