Birthday Brisket
« on: February 02, 2010, 05:02:41 AM »
Today I will go to Sam's and pick up two 10 pounders for my father-in-laws birthday get together Saturday night.

My "world famous" brisket was requested by the birthday boy.....what's a guy to do!   ;)

The past few times at Sam's I see they have pork loin allready marinated in the vac bag.

They have a couple of flavors...one is apple and I can't remember the other.

Has anyone ever tried these little marinated piggies before?

Thinking about picking one up of each.

I tried one of those marinated loins...    Personally, I wasn't too crazy about it.

It turned out Ok, but whatever they pumped it with was a bit overpowering.

I have no vote on the tenderloins that are pre-marinated, but did want to say,

Your FIL is a lucky man to have a SIL that would drop everything in his busy schedule

and smoke/cook his "World Famous" brisket for him for his Birthday!

Sounds like a good time to be had by all!

Tell FIL "Happy Birthday" from the Forum.

I say go for the loin just to see what YOU think.

I have tried them but cooked on the grill on the rotisserie, perty good that way.

Your FIL will be in heaven when he and the family sits down to eat.

I took a 1-1/2 hour road trip yesterday to a larger town south of where I live. Stopped at a few stores that are not available in my area. Then since I'm not a Sam's member I went to the huge Wally world next door. I have got brisket there in the past. None in the cooler and the butcher said they do not carry it anymore. Whats wrong with these people?  >:(

Now that's plain stupid!

You need to get a Sam's card!

The one here in Omaha has a great meat counter.

I have stopped buying (fresh) meat at Walmart since they did away with a

butcher dept and all their meat is shipped in already packaged.

???? re: Sam's Brisket.  I went there the other day b/c I have seen people post that they have gotten their brisket from Sam's Club.  They only cut I found there was in the cryovac and it was labeled untrimmed flat for 2.99lb and they were about 8lbs.  Do they have the packer's cut at Sam's?
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?

That's what I find at my Sams. Never got a packer there.

But they are not highly trimmed either, like the ones in the grocery store.

I just bought two Angus, whole briskets, choice for $1.78 a pound at Sam's.

I guess the "whole" would be a packers cut?

They also have just the flats.
