Default My Wagyu Brisket Review/Results (Pics)

Ok I'll try and keep this short and sweet. The biggest thing I learned about cooking Wagyu is I always misspelled "Wagyu" as "Waygu". That is all.............

I guess I'll give a little more info . Long story short, it was everything I hoped it would be. I have not been shy about my lack of brisket cooking ability, though I have gotten 7th out of 31 & 13th out of 30 in the last 2 competitions so maybe I just beat myself up . I will still be working on my choice brisket, but this Wagyu was just awesome.

Cooked fast. About 14lbs after trimmed and it took almost dead on 9hrs. Now for some reason the TnT was running hotter than I normally smoker 260-270 most of the cook and I had trouble getting it down so I said screw it and just ran with it. There was zero stall, which I read is the case most of the time. And it was so tender. I've never had a brisket do the pull test perfectly. The last (& first) competition I judged I got to taste 4 really good briskets that all passed the pull test and mine was right there.

Flavor wise all I did was rub with Bovine Bold. No injection. The beef flavor was much more intense than what I've cooked in the past, which is how it is supposed to be i'm guessing . Looking forward to cooking the other this weekend.

Here are the pics.....

I woke up about 7am and fired up the smoker. Got some of our first frost this weekend.


Pre Trim


More pre trim


Trimmed and seasoned


Normally the scraps along the sides that I trim aren't any good (with that brown oxidized junk that happens), but this was different. I saved them


Then cooked some for breakfast. Very good.




Put it on right at 9am


Took 3 hrs to get to 155 when I foiled it.


Ok I now have to apologize since when it was done after 9hrs I put it in a cooler and went to my comp buddies house to eat and didn't bring my camera so these next few pics are horrible with my phone and do not show the true color/appearance of the meat.


Super juicy and tender. Didn't trim off that bottom fat like I would for a competition as I like it there . Also the new 12" Victorinox Slicer is so awesome. Well worth the $38 I paid on Amazon.


Very bendy. Also not a super deep smoke ring and I used as much wood as I normally do so go figure, but had the flavor I wanted.


Time/Temp Chart. I put down the temp every 30mins. Rise is super stead with zero stall.

You've done something I've kicked around doing for sometime. What's held me back is the price of the Wagyu brisket. Thank you for posting your results, I just might give it a shot.

Thanks. I of course don't have much experience with this and hope to get to occasionally cook more. I want to still get better at choice and as of right now it would be hard to say that cooking Wagyu is worth the 3-4 times cost of choice. It was awesome though

What does a wagyu run in price and where can you usually find one?

welcome to the world of wagyu. simply awesome cut of beef. i've actually been experimenting and have found that ibp and excel choice angus when wet aged at least 40 days past the packaged date is very close to a wagyu, although a wagyu can never truly be replaced

You nailed my biggest concern. Is the taste worth the significant price delta between it and regular brisket.

I still would like to give it a try though, for science of course.

I got mine for $7.99/lb. My local butcher got it from Snake River Farms. You can order directly from them online too.
