@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...
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.
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.
-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…!
Ready to start:
Trimmed and with rub:
Set up, SRF on top:
SRF at 180 getting wrapped in paper:
Finished product (choice got use as appetizer for the most part)
SRF resting...I pulled at 198
Amazing smoke ring....

It was a great day...
