    2.5 year old Snow's brisket

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but it is a testimonial to Snow's.

    I bought a brisket for a special occasion about two and a half years ago. The occasion never happened and the brisket got pushed to the back of the freezer. Sunday I dug it out. It was wrapped in the original foil that Snow's provided and nothing else (three or four layers thick) - lots of rendered fat pretty much sealed it. I thawed it in the fridge overnight (well, it didn't thaw much overnight), unwrapped it, put it into a 2 gallon ziplock and sous vide it at 140* for 5 hours. It was still amazing.

    On Monday I took this to the local brew pub which just re-opened (along with some pork belly burnt ends and homemade sourdough ciabatta) and it was a hit. I took the rest to work to share with my staff who also raved about it.

    If you come to Texas, Snow's should be on your to-do list.

    We went to Snow's on our last trip to Austin. I don't remember ever having any better than Snow's.

            Even the meat you eat is old! Sure it wasn't from 1958?

              He appreciates things that have been well aged, nothing wrong with that, lol.

              Hey, if you dry age raw beef for 60 days or so, why not dry age cooked beef for 60 years?

                Wonder what Covid has done to their ability to open? Since they only do a Saturday business, maybe nothing. I’m more than game, let’s see how things go as Texas opens up in the next few weeks. A Texas m&g is WAY overdue.

                Troutman According to Snow's website they are closed but still doing mail order. With Texas starting to open they will probably open in the next month. I'll keep checking. I think it would be cool to have mini-meat ups at different Texas BBQ locations, maybe once a quarter or once every six months.
