Brisket request please
Yep another question about Brisket.
Could some one put up or link to a mercan brisket being removed from a carcass.
My butcher has no idea what an American brisket is.
I have discussed this with a few butchers and they can get a bit narky when you request something foreign

I googled and really didn't find anything. Maybe this will help?

It's the same cut that Australian Meat Processors use for "Corned Beef"

wikipedia "Brisket" Defined...

Thanks very much for your help, I will copy all of this and see how I go.

2352 is what you want

Here is the American version with a very technical description:

Page 37


Item No. 120 - Beef Brisket, Deckle-Off, Boneless - This item is as described in Item No. 119 except that the deckle (hard fat and M. intercostales interni on the inside surface) shall be removed at the natural seam exposing the lean surface of the M. pectoralis profundi. The hard fat along the sternum edge shall be trimmed level with the boned surface. The inside lean surface shall be trimmed practically free of fat.

fantastic link thanks.

We have the same problems in the U.K. but we now use a company that imports U.S. beef so problem solved.

Peruse these pictures and tell me how close we are please.
First lot is a Full Australian Brisket so I am told.

Thickest part would be 2 1/2 inches dressed.

Next pieces.

About 3 inches thick

An American brisket and an Australian brisket are the same! I cannot understand your problem. There is a difference between trimmed & untrimmed!

It looks like they have taken the point off and what you have is what we call the flat.

landarc 05-22-2013 11:51 PM

From what I see, you have split the brisket in half, the side on the left is part of the flat, and the full point. The part on the right is the flat. You appear to have cut directly through the middle of what we call the flat of the brisket, crossways. This, if it had not been split, would have been what we call a packer brisket.

Yes but you can buy with or without the point or just buy the point. Still same brisket Aussie and U.S.
