Default GFS Score!!! and whats a beef knuckle?

I have 2 GFS's on my way home from work. I stopped in just now to try some of their lump after guys recommended I try it.

They do have a small fresh meat counter now. I saw something interesting, I was going to ask you guys about it, its called a beef knuckle. Looks like a nice little roast, like a sirloin tip, but I have never heard of it. I did a quick search and it looks like thats what it is, part of the sirloin cut

I was going to pick one up if you guys said it was ok.

Then I decide to stop at the other GFS and what do I see???

A small (8 lb) brisket!!! $2.49 lb. Looked like a nice little guy so I snagged it. I have been looking for a smaller one but they are not easy to find by me. It was packed on Jan 28th.

It will be perfect for a try on my new OK Joe. I have done a few in the past on other smokers that have come out fine.

So the knuckle will have to wait LOL

SO whats the deal with them anyway??

You were right when you mentioned Sirloin Tip. If they keep them whole instead of cutting them apart they are called a knuckle. The sirloin tip is located close to the round.

all I can tell you they looked like a sirloin roast, they are smallish, about 6-8 lbs and felt boneless

Per IMPS guidelines, the knuckle is the Beef Round, Sirloin Tip. Peeled simply means that tendon and skin is removed from the cut.

Not to be confused with the top sirloin, which is part of the loin.
