Default Flat Flats

I went to Restaurant Depot this morning to pick up some briskets for my comp this weekend. They sucked! Icouldn't find a single brisket with a flat over 1/2 and inch high.

How am I supposed to get decent slices out of those?

Gonna try Smart & Final on the way home.

You could always cut them on a bias.... All joking aside though Mista, if you don't find any thicker ones angle your knife some when you slice and your pieces will appear thicker.

I really hope it doesn't come down to that.

I just picked up a couple of Black Canyon Angus briskets for the comp a week from tomorrow that were awesome! Sorry you're having trouble finding thicker flats... definitely been down that road.

I cant find any good briskets around my town. Butchers around here do not have a clue about BBQ. All they really care about is making the sell. When I ask to look at their product, I get this rolling of the eyes, and the "all of our meats are good" Bullcrap.

I feel your pain Mista.

A few weekd ago they had some real bad packers at Sams. A week later they had some great ones. Some of the best they've had. It goes in cycles.

I was at the Rest Depot in Needham MA yesterday and found the same thing. All the loose briskets had very thin flats and not competition worthy. I ended up buying a case of CAB packers and found about 1/2 of them were decent.
