Beef brisket is a fabulous cut of meat. The brisket is located between the shoulders and the forelegs of the steer. These muscles get a work-out, which results in more flavor in the meat, and they are also well marbled with fat, adding even more flavour.
So they are highly flavourful and perfect for slow braises. Long cooking time is needed to melt the connective tissue.
Upon serving, the meat is cut across the grain, helping it become fall-apart tender. A great cut for the smoker!
