Default Where to purchase beef brisket

Hi Ya'll,

I'm going to see a friend of mine in Tennessee for memorial day weekend. He asked me to bring a good beef brisket with me. Can anyone suggest a place to purchase some? (uncooked, of course).

Might want him to specify trimmed or not. If he doesn't specify, definitely get the untrimmed.

Practically every grocery store here sells brisket. You could get it at Randalls or HEB, but I prefer what I've gotten at Randalls better. They usually have it on sale prior to memorial day, and there typically is a good selection since they stock up. If you want something from a specialty store or butcher, you might try the Meat House in Westlake.

Are you flying? You can grab one at the Salt Lick in the airport.

No, I'm driving.

if you email Franklin's, they will freeze dry you some (at least he told me he would!)

Really? Franklins would take the time to chop off some brisket for me? That's hard to believe.

I'll have to check out some of these places.

You could cook it seriously low and slow on the 10+ hour drive! Fashion up one of those engine block cookers...set it and forget it! Yum-O!!!

Really? He wants you to bring an uncooked brisket with you, when you could bring an authentic Texas BBQ brisket with you?? That makes no sense at all.

For uncooked meat, you might as well buy the brisket up there than to lug it from here and have to keep it cold the whole way.

But having a BBQ brisket sent ahead from Snow's or Salt Lick... that's something I do to gain guaranteed automatic hero points when I'm somebody's guest.

Hmm... now that you mentioned it, maybe that is what he was asking for. I guess I was just assuming he wanted to grill it himself, now I need clarification! He just said he wanted some beef brisket from Texas.

I don't eat a lot of red meat, so that's why I probably sound like a moron on this topic.
