Went to the butcher and ordered a brisket unrolled, because here they roll 'em up and it is nothing like the 'brisket' I see here in pics:confused:
Anyhow, this is what I did with mine:

And when she was done:

Made some sensational fajitas!

It's not what you see here because that's not a Brisket. :-P Looks great though.

That looks like Meaty Beef Ribs. Sure looks good though!

Yeah, I am curious if someone will be able to narrow it down for me.
To my eye...and I am no butcher, it seems to be the lower stomach plate outside the ribs?:confused:
It has a layer of fat running between the top and the rib bones.

Thanks Michael, it was a really delicious cut and I got ripped off, another butcher later quoted me half the price I paid for it.
Will do again for sure, that is cheap beef around here @ $8:50!:-D

It looks good. bro. But, it's not a brisket. Here is a full packer brisket. No bones.

Thanks Boshizzle.
Is a brisket (US) cut away from the bones though, the butcher offered to do this but who says no to bones?

Here is a link to the Australian cuts of beef. Note that the brisket looks like it does have ribs.


Edit: The link isn't allowed any more.

Here is a link to an older thread, which has a link to an even older thread on what cut you want for brisket in Australia.

Here is a pic of some ribs I did this past summer. They had some meat on them that was very much like brisket. The butcher offered to cut it off for me because he said it was tough. But, I refused because I was going to BBQ the ribs and knew that the cook time would take care of the toughness.

The brisket comes from the front of the cow near the front legs.

Take your butcher this pic and see what he can do.

Yes, Australian brisket is really the plate. It may or may not have those rib ends on them depending on what the butcher actually does with them.

I have investigated long and hard and did eventually find a place that knew what they were, but would not cut me just one brisket. Reason being is that they have to change the production line to do it and they had done that for Box Hill Catering college, where they train chefs.

Pretty much everywhere else that sells brisket, sells the plate rolled up. This is most oftern made into soup here in Melbourne by the Chinese and Vietnamese community.

My next efforts at sourcing a proper brisket will be when I next go to Costco. I very much doubt they will assist though.

Despite all that Buccs... that looks live a very nice meal.

Cheers!

You guys are really helping but when I ran my eye over those US meat maps I notice we are using the same name for different cuts!!!
Talk about confusing!:confused:
I will keep looking and try to figure some things out but I think my cut here is the short plate.

Okay Bill, that lines up with what I figured out looking at the maps.Because we are cutting differently it is going to be tricky to get the butcher to do something different because it won't leave him with other cuts that this market buys.
Hmmm.
Still, that plate was cheap and delicioso, Hombre!
That's something to be pleased about!

Thanks Jim, seems you have been diving in helping us Aussies out of the wilderness more than once on this issue!
Appreciate it mate!:thumb:

Don't know if it's even possible or how much it'd even cost... But what ordering a Waygu brisket from Snake River Farms or another like company? http://www.snakeriverfarms.com/

What about ordering a half cow? Then you can have the butcher cut it the way you want it. I dunno if it's common in other parts of the US but here in Texas it's fairly common for people to order a whole or half cow and then stock their freezer.

Yeah, even just buy a whole forequarter and ask your friendly butcher to cut it up how you like.
