  • Re: MANO A MANO: Snake River Farm´s VS Costco´s Choice packer (with pics)

    @Egglegal_Alien: Hey, nice to see a fellow egger from monterrey. I got it from COMRO which is the company that distributes Angus beef in mexico, they have a Little store in Ricardo Margain, I saw there SRF vacio argentino (flank steak) and managed to make a special order...send me an email if you want more details...

    salud!

    @henapple: It was a Partagas Serie E # 2. kind of a strong cigar but not over-powering...

    Thanks Yemtray.

    @Wolfpack: Monterrey ! A lot of "Eggers" around here...!

  • MANO A MANO: Snake River Farm´s VS Costco´s Choice packer (with pics)

    So, I was able to buy a couple of SRF packer briskets (I live in mexico so is not easy) and decided to invite some friends over and have this little test between these two. I have to admit that the idea came to me because I did not want to cook both SRF briskets at the same time and for the number of people invited we needed two briskets.

    The Cook:

    I decided to use only S&P on the SRF brisket. For the other one I use this rub:

    1/2 cup coarse kosher or sea salt
    1/3 cup black pepper
    1/4 cup granulated garlic
    1/4 cup ground paprika
    2 tbsp celery seed
    2 tsp cumin

    I set up bbq guru at 235 and placed the SRF on top so that the drippings could only “affect” the Costco brisket and not the other way around. I Used oak chunks and a handful of hickory chips for smoke.

    Conclusions:

    -Definitely SRF is a superior product, amazing moisture and flavor. I did not take video but I’m pretty sure the wiggle would be there as in CENTEX video. Simply amazing!

    - I did not believe until today that using only S&P on a brisket was enough. It certainly is especially with good quality meet.

     

    The only problem now is that is going to be difficult to use choice packers from now on…!
