Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Look what I found at Kroger yesterday!

    @RAC - my local Kroger has been selling separate points and flats for a while too. Awesome - now we can buy the best part of the brisket by itself! I made burnt ends out of one some time ago since SWMBO loves them.

    Dammit! I can't find any part of a brisket at grocery stores here.

    Two people mentioned in the burnt ends thread that there point didn't turn out too well when they cooked it.  Said they get better results with a whole packer

    Not sure what I will do with it. I was thinking burnt ends but worst case should make some good ground hamburger

    @cazzy - I don't disagree. But to do a whole packer, I have to wait for other mouths to feed because they're rather big. By just doing the point, SWMBO and I don't have tons of leftovers. Plus it's harder to screw up the point, but easier for me to screw up a packer!

    No make burnt ends.  It's $13 so it's minimal risk.  Just cause they didn't like the result, doesn't mean you wont.

    I disagree.  You're assuming the point is easier to cook than a packer.  I don't think a packer is hard at all to nail.  Hit me up next packer and I'll give you my cell and walk you through it all.

    Too many leftovers?  No problem since I know you sous vide.  Cut half of the flat (the end cut) up and make chop, then make 8 or 12 oz packs of chop and freeze for a later date.  Next, take half the point, and vacuum seal for a later. 

    You won't lose much quality reheating brisket in your demi and it will be quick meals for later.

    I might take you up on that offer :) other folks like my brisket but I don't think I've nailed it yet. The flat has never quite probed like butter - a little under or a little over, just never quite bang on.

    I'll try reheating the leftovers in the demi next time. Just haven't done a brisket since the demi came home. I usually make spaghetti sauce with leftover flat.

    Nice! The only points not part of a packer that I've found have been corned. Wish I could find a point by itself.

    I would not wait to long on that hunk of meat,  sell by date was two days ago.

  • The 'sell by' date is probably the same day it is re-packaged as 'Wet Aged Beef Brisket."

    I never could tell the difference in 'sell by' and 'cook by.'  I wish they would all say "Freeze Immediately or Cook By."  But I would still be a little suspicious, especially of hamburger meat.

    Or they could add some personal information on the label, like:

    "Hi. My name was Imogene Chicken until I was slaughtered and processed on February 12, 2014 at the Bigger And Better Chicken Company in Deep South, Mississippi.  I was then sent to your favorite store where you purchased me and will soon cook me according to one of your favorite recipes.  If you have no particular recipe in mind, may I suggest cutting my backbone out and cooking me on your grill.  I'm already full of flavor enhancers, complements of Bigger and Better Chicken Company, but you might add a little salt and pepper, or if you have a favorite spice rub, such as Dizzy Pig's Shakn' The Tree, you might try that.  I think you will like me even more.  Be sure to cook me thoroughly.  Bigger and Better tries to keep a clean house, but you know how that is.  There are some really nasty chickens in this world.  Enjoy me. And I'll see you in Heaven."

    That would sell a lot of chickens.
