Default Butcher's BBQ and Dry Aged Beef

Hi,

Would you modify how you use Butcher's injection for your brisket if you are using dry aged beef?

I don't want to kill the judges palette and dry aged beef tastes 'meatier' as it is.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric

If you dry aging brisket, my question back to you is how large is the brisket you started with? The reason I asking for is after trimming off the leathery dry outside you prob won't have much meat left. But to ask answer your question, I would look and keeping the strength your used to. You have to remember that the process of dry aging will increase the beef taste and it does that by drying (reducing the amount of moisture) that intensifies the beef flavor. So by adding the moisture back into is kind of counter productive. Please keep us all posted because this would be an interesting test that we would all be wanting to follow.

Hmmmmm......so I know that dry aging removes water from the meat, and thus concentrates the beef flavor, but wouldn't adding an injection BACK in help even more? I mean you're not just adding straight water back in.

Would more time have to be allowed for the injection to work back into the meat fibers so it wouldn't just be in pockets?


Interesting.....

I can't imagine there'd be much of the flat left at all after dry aging and trimming...

It was about 15 lbs after it was dry aged. It seems to have plenty of meat on it.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

It was 15 days and it came that way. Less chance of me screwing it up that way. : )
