    Is it Waygu beef? Real Kobe would mean that thing cost a few hundred dollars.

    It cost a few shekels, I'm trying to start the Jewish new year off right.

    Nice!

    Someone will soon post the Kobe beef is the biggest scam in the food industry article.

    None the less, I hope it turns out amazing.

    My wife picked this one up for me today. You can order them from Snake River Farms, they have a great website.

    Not a bad price for Waygu brisket. Shipping made me go ouch. Your wife must love you very much. ;)

    Snake river farms meat is really good. There is an Asian store super h mart here in Georgia that carries some of their meat but not briskets.

    Enjoy... Hope it turns out great

    The shipping is almost the cost of a single brisket... Since it appears that they are driving it to my house, how much more for them to stay and smoke it for me? ;)
  • Snake River Farms is the place to get Waygu brisket! Shipping isn't bad when you buy 3 or more. I usually get 14lbs. They have a shorter cook time then your average brisket. Love them!

    He made an update to the article saying that in August 2012, we're now allowed to import meat from Japan. Even though, SRF only sells American Waygu and not Japanese Kobe. While many of us think we have, most of us haven't had Japanese Kobe. Except Cen-Tex, but that's because he probably because he knows a guy who knows a guy who knows the guy that massages the cows.

    I didn't realize Kobe Bryant had his own meat company. Great diversification...

  • I understand that Kobe Beef is not exported and can only be found in Japan's Kobe Vally! Somebody fed you a line!
  • henapplehenapple Posts: 14,670
    I thought so.

    Here's the finished product 19 hours later. It was amazing, but I just can't seem to get a smoke ring like I can on my offset. I'm putting the brisket on cold and using BGE lump with pecan chunks.

  • That looks great. Try mixing a little hickory in at the begining of the cook and put the brisket in as cold as possible. How was the taste? I really like that extra marble inthe Waygu. A bit spendy for family, but the only way to go for competition.

    The tast, texture, and bark was amazing. The only thing missing was the smoke ring.
