Default What are you eating for Christmas?

I'm doing a big hunk of beef and either a ham or a turkey depending on what my kids decide they want (they'll end up eating brisket and the other meat will turn into leftovers).

I special ordered a brisket from Sam's Club. They offer "Choice" grade meat which is better than the usual "Select" you find most places.

It's sitting in my fridge "wet aging" now. Amy's not happy I'm taking an entire shelf for over a week.

im pretty sure "most" places around here are choice... i know all Jewel meat is at least choice.

$2.68 is a solid price per pound though for a choice brisket. i picked up a prime one from place in wisconsin for 2.99 a lb i think a few weeks back.

Jesus...I had no idea you could even get brisket that cheap. There's a "mom & pop" type butcher right by my house that I go to...and the prime brisket is usually around $6 a pound.

I'm smoking a pork shoulder on Christmas Eve...pretty excited.

You guys are lucky with Chicago's meat availability.

Down here, it's harder to get good quality meats unless you order online and pay a mint.

A Prime brisket would have cost me $119 or more. Wagyu was around $200 plus shipping. I would have taken Prime if I could get it for $2.99 lb. That's a great price.

Prime has more marbling which contributes to a more flavorful and juicier brisket. I will inject beef broth to compensate.

Gotta pick up some Oak or Hickory wood since I just have fruit woods now. Beef can handle stronger smoke. I'm hoping to replicate the Aaron Franklin recipe with a few tweaks. His brisket is the best I have ever seen. The smoke ring is great. The rendering of the fat is perfect.

It's around the holidays we miss my old man working at the slaughterhouse...

Meat that was mooing two days prior, at cost....

I believe it's going to be a ham at the parents house though if memory serves.

Christmas Eve I'll be crab legs, prawns or shrimp and probably scallops or a lobster tail. Sides to be determined.
Christmas day will be at my parents house so most likely turkey and/or ham with the standard holiday sides and mom usually tries to make something new and extravagant for my vegetarian/pescetarian wife. It's actually quite cool that my mom goes out of her way to make things for my wife just to make her smile.

Have you tried them? They don't mention what type of meat they use except for that it's good.

Supposedly, if you age these briskets 2-3 weeks in the cryopack, they taste better. I'm going about 9 days which puts the brisket just past the sell by date.

Couldn't tie up Amy's fridge for longer than that unless I wanted to hide all the knives.

Had some prime rib, lobster tails, crab legs, stuffed clams, corn, baked potatoes, and some bread. This doesn't count desert. We had about 25 lobster tails for everybody and just as much crab legs. About 11 of us ate every last bit of it.

I had an egg bake in the AM with fruit and coffee cakes. In between a bunch of dips cocktail shrimp and beer. For dinner was beef tenderloin, ham sweet potatoes and green beans and after devoured my wife's cinnabun cheesecake with a glass of scotch.
Now I feel the full rath of my actions yesterday.WELL WORTH IT!
