Default 21.8 lbs angus brisket

So the local restaurant depot was having industry appreciation day yesterday... Tons of free food, coupons for items etc. I wound up getting coupons to use for a meat purchase. Anyway, I stumbled into a monster 21.8# angus with some amazing marbling. I'll have some pics up later tonight as I'm planning on throwing it on early tomorrow am.

What's the biggest brisket you guys have encountered?

Blah, Blah, Blah,

The largest I've seen is 17 lbs.

I see you're an Arrested Development fan.

Our RD has Bea's brand corned beef and they have corned beef briskets as big as 23 or 24 lbs. Fresh the biggest I've seen is about 18 lbs.

Ron, I have bought the RD Corned Beef before. It is in a cryo with a ton of pickling fluid. At least a couple pounds. At our RD it comes in a 2 pack in a box so you can't see what you are buying......

Dang. Biggest I've seen is just a hair over 20 lbs I believe but was only one time. Usually the big ones I see round here are 14 - 16 lbs at Sams.

Before I really started trimming


seasoned up... I may have gotten a little carried away trimming. trimmed off ~4-5# of fat and meat. The hanging pieces of meat got cubed up and put into my Vitamix for grinding. Those are are being saved for my mother-in-laws meatballs.


Here's the flat side. Sadly, it got hacked up bad @ the processing plant... oh well

That's all I got for now. It went on @11am this morning. I'm anticipating pulling it around the same time tomorrow.

I rubbed it down w/ olive oil, and a rub of mostly kosher salt & black pepper, with a little bit of garlic powder, ancho, mustard seed & onion powder. Occasionally I'll inject, but this flat had so much marbling it wasnt needed.

I'll post more pics when I wrap

Biggest I've ever done is a 13#...That's a big SOB you've got. I'm curious how much fat you'll have to trim off.

I'm running a 22.5 WSM. It didn't find when I put it on, I had to arch the middle to get it fit.

That RD is hit or miss. That had 5 of them on thurs, all over 17#. They were giving out RD bucks that day, got a nice deal on the sucker.
