    Fock with my hb egg and the gang better come correct from here on out, you know who you are.  Hopefully, you'll learn something.  Nobody has showed me the correct way to cut a hb egg, but you ripped it apart.

    The gauntlets have been thrown, and all of them picked up.

    Funny how that works.  :)

    Coming out of the refractory period, getting hard again, it won't stop.  More than adequate tissue perfusion.  I can't tuck and hide.

    I may get banned tomorrow.

    If I do, it's been fun, and sincere apologies to the ultra sensitive.

    My holiday brisket pi##ed me off.  No fat on one side (the side you see in the trash)  The other side was endless.  Not worth the bother to cook it.

    I sincerely doubt you'll be banned for talking about hard stool in a prolapsed bowel.  That's what you were talking about, right?

    They won't ban you brother. You may get a friendly cease and desist warning, but that's about the extent of it. I have had several myself. I kind of consider them a badge of honor at this point.

    I can't believe that you would say such as that on a family friendly forum. You should be banned ;)

    Man b, at first I thought you were joking, then I saw Phoenix.  Sorry you got hosed on that chunk of beef.

    Maybe we could turn this best brisket pic thread into a sh!t brisket thread, we'll get more pics.  Show us your shittiest brisket folks.  I know they're out there.

    50% fat?!  That's nucking futs!  Still, throwing away 7 pounds of meat seems a little spiteful.  Cut it up and make a stew, or grind it into burger meat or something.  Or take it back.  Costco takes everything back. 

    Anyway, my condolences on your loss.

    On a serious note, this is easily the most entertaining thread that I have read in a while that doesn't contain any politics.

    I went in to costco today for something else and went to the return counter.  Showed the guy the pics and didn't even have to ask for a refund.  The guy was more worried about how it affected my 4th.  Unbelievable customer service.

    I wasn't throwing it away to be spiteful - just knew I'd spend the next 15 hours stewing about it, and it would have been like leather anyway because it was so thin.  Instead I had a great 4th and cooked simple.

    edit - and btw, I don't blame Costco.  It was simply a bad piece of meat.  It happens, occasionally so I hear.

    You did the right thing, pulling the plug at that point.

    I would've tossed it too.  Sorry it threw a wrench in things, but adapting to simple was a good move, always works. 

    Awesome that Costco recovered your losses.
    That is almost traumatic.

    So Prime Costco briskets are occasionally like this, WTF?

    Ya gotta love Costco.

    I felt a bit embarrassed last Sunday at the return counter there.  I brought in a suitcase that lasted about two trips before the handle broke off, leaving a flesh-slicing triangular piece of broken metal affixed to the top.

    Return Lady:  "I'm sorry, we don't have any record of you buying this here, in fact, I don't recall ever selling this brand.  Our records show you bought some other suitcases, but not this one."

    Me: "Ya know, on second thought, I must have bought this from Sam's"

    Anyway, I just threw it in the trash.

    Do you think you'll try another Costco Prime?

    I can cook brisket, but don't believe in gods.

    The costco prime brisket has increased in price by a buck, so I'm inclined to say something changed.   Costco will loose money before they sell poor quality food, so my guess is they could have changed suppliers, or there is a dearth of brisket in the supply/demand equation and (either way) the supplier cut a bad subprimal.

    No question.  I don't cook a lot of briskets, but I very much enjoy the ritual.  A little sipping, all day fire management - To me, that's happiness.

    Like whitetail, the wise hunters I have in the circle, know it's limitations.  Backstraps, inner loins, hidden loins, heart, liver, are left intact, everything else gets ground.

    Again, there is no chicken salad, with chicken sh!t.

    Edit: b, this wasn't directed at you.  I posted it before your reply came up.

    Maybe if you believe nola, your brisket will improve.  The gods can't identify point vs flat, or separate them like Moses did the Red Sea, but follow your heart.

    How was that piece of kaka graded prime in the first place?

    Have you ever had a PR look like that?

    There's no actionable information in my post about the quality of Costco brisket, so nothing to believe in, no action items listed.  FWIW
