    Ah so that's why he takes the purple pill, so he can be Bono. (or get one)

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    I'm embarrassed by how much I like the McRib.  Nebraska born product, so that's kinda cool

    I grilled spam tonight and made a sandwich. Something I saw here. I feel sick now. Wish it was a mcrib.

    Dude...I ate a burrito with Philly Gourmet meat (like Steak-umm) for lunch.  I don't know what was worse...the shame or the nausea.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    We have had open a couple of Friddys Steak-burgers just open ( I like the burger and really like the meatloaf sandwich ). The question here is this Steak-umms?

    This seems similar to the "Watcha drinkin?" thread - but McNasty-er.

  • I would like to talk more about Arby's brisket sandwich. I want to cook a brisket but I'm not sure I have ever had brisket before. I got an Arby's brisket today and was totally unimpressed! Now I really wonder if I should spend $40 on this hunk of meat to try it out at home. It seems to be one of the most popular cuts of meat cooked on here. Any advice?

  • @Loosemoose I'm betting that Arby's brisket bears about the same resemblance to real brisket as Arby's roast beef does to real roast beef, which is none whatsoever. 
    Find a local butcher, get a small brisket, maybe 5-6# flat, and give it a go. I used the Travis Method for the first couple, very easy and good results.

  • Arby's brisket sandwich or McD's rib sandwich? Man so many choices...I'm confused now  :-/

    Make sure you stop for a bacon sundae at Burger King afterwards
  • I tried the brisket sandwich out of curiosity as I would love to try a brisket cook. I'm 51 years old and my dad was a meat cutter and I had meat on the table as a kid most every night. I am not sure we ever had brisket.
    I will try to cook one here at home. It's not like the $40 will break me up.
    Usually when we eat meat at a restaurant we are disappointed anyways because we can cook better here at home. The egg and the knowledge I have gained here have helped a lot.
    Thanks again for the advice.

  • Pork butts are very forgiving and I will look for one I like and settle on the lowest price. For brisket I truly believe it all depends on the quality you start with. Flats are too difficult to be the first brisket you cook, it will generally end up dry. I picked up a 11lb prime brisket last week. It has enough fat to stay moist and end up great. Anything less than choice and I would pass.


    If you want to be successful, shoot me an email and I would be happy to talk and give you some suggestions

  • Thanks Crimsongator. I'm off work the week of thanksgiving and plan on cooking one then. I'll shoot you an email between now and then.
