Sam's Club sells this: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=prod1510748&pid=CSE_Froogle&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=sku1804360
Which they call "kobe beef of texas" brisket, but it is akaushi. Not wanting to get into semantics of what is kobe beef or akaushi beef or whatever name it may have, has anyone actually tried this brisket? at $80 shipped, its a pretty good deal compared to getting wagyu shipped, as long as it's comparable to a higher end brisket.



The main reason I ask is that's next to impossible to get a brisket around here as it is, and definitely not one of any kind of quality (at least as far as I know)



Thanks for any insight!

I just saw that exact thread before posting mine. No one ever actually said if they had used or not with any success.

if its $80.00 shipped you can get a snake river farms waygu for about 97.oo to 105.00 (havent purchased one in about 6 months) and for the extra money I can assure its worth it. BTW I have never heard or tried the brisket that Sams is offering?!?!!?:confused:

I checked snake river farms, and they're at $80 plus $60 shipping, so that's a big jump from the sam's club one.

I've never heard of the kind that sam's offers either, i was hoping someone on here had and could offer some insight.

So based on that description, it may be worth a try. Of course, I've never actually tried wagyu brisket, so I wouldn't be able to really compare the two.

Akaushi IS Waygu.

The distributor's description of it being Kobe, yet raised in the USA, is very misleading. Kobe only originates in Japan...although it is Waygu also.
