Hi Everyone, I'm a brand new member. I'm sure everyone gets sick of seeing posts from new members, but here goes. I just got a BGE XL for my birthday...wow...it's like going from a Honda to a Ferrari (no offense Honda owners :)
). I love it and can't seem to stop thinking about my next cook.
Anyways, here's the deal. I'd like to get your thoughts on Briskets.
Is there such a thing as a PRIME brisket? Pat LaFrieda here in NYC is selling one for $98. I looked at different sites and there is disagreement...does it exist or no?
I know what you're thinking...BBQ in NYC...Uh oh. But give me a pass. My father in law is from Kansas City and agreed to share his secrets after I married his daughter. And now I'm a student of BBQ.
Next question...is WAGYU brisket worth it? I know that competition teams use them. But I respect all of your opinions more - is it worth it? Do you notice a difference?
