Default Strube Ranch briskets

I'm considering switching to them for comp briskets. Anyone with experience on them willing to share their opinion?

I don't have any experience with them, but the man that sells them (Big Poppa) is on this forum regularly, and uses them in comps. I'm sure he'll be glad to answer any questions.

Tried em, didn't care for em, didn't win with em, started using cab choice national beef packers or Angus pride and the walks started happening. I ain't got nothing against big poppa smokers, but is prices are too outrageous for a smaller brisket than you will get directly from strube. here in tx it takes 1 business day to ship. I have Doug's personal cell phone # that works at strube, he will personally hand pick you out a good one for competitions rather than random bulk big companies are sent. Pm me if you want Doug's number and I will get you set up. Just FYI I fell for the"wagyu" gimmick a while back also.
The black means its aged.



Doug Is a super nice guy that will do anything for the customer and or that alone it's worth a try.

Imo, the Strube briskets are great and yes they tend to run on the small size. Last year I got quite a few in the 15-17 pound range, but later in the season and thus far this year they have been in 12-15 pound range.
On a side note, when the brisket size goes down, the flat on the Strubes stays really nice, you just lose some point.

I used them in my last comp and placed 4th in brisket. This was at a sam's club local event. The reason they are smaller is that Texas has been fighting droughts the past few years. This does not help they grow.

Nice Hatchet job here. I hardly make anything on Strube Briskets...It drives customers to me. If you give us more than a few days we select from the same place Doug does.


But to answer you I use them and it helped me win the royal and another rgc today at Sams Tucson.

By the way back to the cheap shot by Jmoney...
compare our shipping to anyone...
also nobody has big wagyus currently..SRF has been struggling with the same issues.
The truth is the 14 pound brisket is the new 17. Times have changed as long as feed is what it is.
We ship one day from and to Texas
By the way Doug doesnt work for Strube anymore. That cell link is going to be pretty useful....
I guarantee you that our customers get the same quality brisket and cheap[er freight than Strube..(who by the way is not accepting new BBQ customers
The sticker that you claim means its agen it the only sticker they offer and does not mean anything.

No cheap shot, your just simply over priced in that particular item. I can get it $50 cheaper from Doug. I'm just not brand loyal like some. But like everything else about y'all's site even get my plowboys and pepper plant from yall. Excellent achievement in the royal last btw.
Poppa, I could have a strube tomorrow any of 5 different retailers and at cost, but until then, I'm gonna stick with my national beef, cargill or Sam kanes.

Doug hasn't worked for Strube Ranch in months. If anyone has a question about our briskets, please feel free to ask. all new sales go thru Big Poppa. The few customers that we service direct are customers that we sold to before we partnered up with Big Poppa. We can't compete with Big Poppa's shipping rates. Our goal was to be able to hand pick briskets for comp guys and provide them with a reasonable shipping rate. Before we teamed up with Big Poppa, the shipping cost was a deal breaker for many people. Now, it's the best of both worlds....hand picked Wagyu briskets with thick flats and reasonable shipping. Plus, you can't beat Big Poppa's customer service...those folks are on the ball. And yes, the briskets are running a bit smaller...with corn at $8 BU nobody is feeding cattle to 1,800 lbs anymore.

That's fine I probably Am out of date, only cooked 4 of them amd can tell you that i could not tast the big difference that people claim. They were good but not $50 extra worth, but for you to dangle a carrot and act like your the only one that those briskets can be gotten from is totally not the case. That's fine, just tryin to help some peeps out. Y'all can keep them expensive overpriced angus briskets with 1/1000th heritage of the tijyama-gyu bloodline. That wagyu is Japanese "style" Kobe beef which is just faux Kobe. I use what I like and what's been been winning for me. It's not the arrow, it's the Indian. We smoked lots of teams with select Walmart or HEB briskets in big comps that use all that expensive stuff. In the end it's all just preference
