Default Halal Brisket at RD

I was just at RD in Alexandria, VA. They had brisket labeled as "halal".

I have no clue what it is or why it is any different than other brisket. The cry-o-vac did not have any labeling as to whether it was Select, Choice, CAB, etc...

Anybody feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Halal means that the meat has been slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law/practice and is allowed as part of the Islamic diet. Typically that would mean the cows throat was slit and the blood allowed to drain from the body.

Thanks. Any idea if it would (or should) be better than choice, select, etc?

Being Halal by itself would not make it any better in my mind.

I would be interested in knowing where the brisket came from. I don't know of any large scale packer that does halal meat so I would think it would have come from a small processor.

Thanks. They all were cut kinda funky looking; not much fat at all on them, and the point just didn't seem to be there.

Heck, if you were at the RD store in Alexandria, I could swear I saw you as I saw someone else there with the same Halal type brisket and a 2-pack of butts over by the freezer section.

But that would be a long haul from NJ.

Also, time for me to fess-up. I bought 1 as well. the rest of the CAB and choice did not look good for comps. Maybe only a couple that had decent flats and in the 15lb range. A lot of 8-12lb products and the flats were super thin.

I am with you in that I sure hope the halal turn out better than what other have experienced.

I know, I'm with you. The marbling in it looked great! I am having a hard time trying to figure out why these things are not as good, and, how to make these any better.

These could be leftover from the recent Ramadan Holy days observed by Muslims.

I usually don't do whole briskest and the RD doesn't carry flats, so without know what HALAL meant I took the plunge. I guess I can't count on this in a comp now. This is one of those threads I wished I had never read ;)
