Watched a couple YouTube videos yesterday about using clarified beef tallow on/injected in brisket and inside butcher paper wrap. Supposed to be Aaron Franklins secret ingredient. Also saw a container of Wagyu beef tallow. Anybody ever try this method?

I have to agree with using a prime brisket instead.

I make tallow from my brisket trimmings. I've also used the Waygu beef tallow from Amazon for different things. Never thought about trying to inject it into a brisket. I would give it a try. I found a whole thread on it over at BBQ brethren. https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=289640

Never have. Just Choice or Prime for me, mostly Choice. They turn out good.

I never bought a Prime brisket on purpose. Kroger had some prime briskets priced 1.77 lb. and mixed in with the choice that were on sale last year. I got home with 2 prime briskets unknowingly or I would have bought more. I will say that the Prime was absolutely one of the best 2 briskets I had ever smoked. I smoked a choice brisket 2 months ago and it wasn`t even close to the prime. I am a believer.

Ive eaten many of them. Have an uncle that is big into BBQ. He now only cooks prime briskets. Ive eaten his pre prime phase post prime phase etc. There is little difference. He also quit using mesquite and now will only cook with oak and swears its better etc. My opinion is there is negligible difference in any of it. Some briskets come out better than others etc. To me a prime brisket is not worth what they want for them. With everything there is decreasing returns for how much it costs. To me it just isnt worth it. Maybe its because I was an economics major or maybe im just easy to please.

Prime by all standards should have more marble, which logically would mean a more tasty juicy brisket. Select grade on the other end, well.

Personally I think if you really know how to pick a brisket you can certainly get away with not getting prime. Just throwing numbers out but I would guess 30% of choice briskets are great but 90% of prime briskets are great. So going prime takes out any guess work.

I remember watching a YouTube video with some famous brisket postmasters. Cant remember exactly who. But they cooked a choice, prime, and Waygu brisket and blind tested and ranked the flavor. It was all over the board. One ranked choice best, another ranked Waygu best and I think the other ranked prime best.

I agree with finding some choice briskets on sale that are very well marbled like a prime, I also bought two choice briskets for $1.77 that were very good.

Just read in this morning’s local paper that Costco will be opening a location up the road in Kyle soon. May give HEB some competition for meat sales with me. I usually go to HEB in new Braunfels for my smoking meat, but if you wait til the weekend it’s slim pickings.

This! I used to buy Prime at Sams until covid doubled them in price. Now I wait for a sale on choice and chose a goodun and trim it right.

This is the last one I cooked was really good:

Costco meat doesn't go on sale, pork is also higher there. The only thing that I have really paid attention to is the price of Prime briskets. They do run cheaper at Costco than they do at HEB. I can't speak for other cuts of meat because I don't buy beef in bulk. We get the packaged chicken thighs and tenders which are cheaper than HEB. But don' think Costco has these crazy meat sales, it's all the frozen and dry goods that you get the good deals on.
