Brisket - The Point
« on: March 29, 2011, 10:51:55 AM »
Hey Guys,

A store in my area is advertising brisket at 2.99 lb. I never see the opportunity here in Ontario to buy brisket. When I called the Fortino's grocery store meat department they tell me that it is the point only.

What do you think... is it worth grabbing up a couple? or would it be best to hold out and special order a packers cut?

Thanks for your comments.
JJ

You can snag a few and try your hand at burnt ends...   That's what most people do with the point.

And then I've seen some guys grind them up and make some killer burgers.    I think CRG even made meatloaf from ground point once..

The point aint as good as the flat if you want sliced brisket but it makes some mighty tasty pulled beef or like Squirt said, burnt ends.

I also make sausage outta the point along with corned beef.

Heck I've even made beef bacon outta the point.  ::)
