Nice looking brisket. I gotta do one of those one of these days. Usually, I get them from Walmart because they have full packer briskets but that one looks like better quality. $62 isn't bad. USDA Choice, I assume?

I need to buy a whole brisket. I fucked up and smoked a flat that was brined for corn beef last weekend. SO salty. I need to redeem myself.

Whole briskets are where it's at. Walmart always has them for cheaper prices but they don't have USDA choice.

Briskets are tough to cook. It's one of the easier meats to mess up. I keep my fingers crossed when I'm cooking one.

Good grief! May I even ask how the hell that happened?

I was going to smoke a pork shoulder I had in the fridge for a week or two. I got the smoker fired up and came inside to get the pork ready when I opened the package it smelled weird. I checked the date and it was one day over the use by date on the label. I didnt want to chance it and through it away. So I had to go shopping on the weekend and it was crazy busy. I got a bunch other things and just wanted to get out of the store when I got to the meat section so I didnt take the time to read the label on the flat I bought. After I got home I thought fuck it we will see what happens. Well its not good and that sucks because it was smoked perfect and cut like butter. Each slice had great flavor and was crazy tender but it was like you put a salt pellet in your mouth.

We froze it but then defrosted in fridge and it spent a few extra days in there due to going out to eat more than expected.

Wifey is trying a new seasoning recipe so it should be a good dinner.

Its all about the total time it spent above 40 degrees. Like if was at the end of its sell by date when you bought it, and how much it warmed up before it was frozen, etc. Its probably fine, or you might get the shits. lol

Im doing a pork shoulder on the grill for xmas. Pork Barrel BBQ rub, 250 degrees on the grill for like 8 hours. Side of garlic parmesan mashed potatoes and brussel spouts halved and fried with cubed pork belly. Now im hard too. :wackit:

My fridge is 37 and it is sealed not just wrapped so that should help.

If it is bad, it'll be a pizza night... after the shits!
