      Good idea. Worth a try!


        I would think a Spanish butcher or market might be able to get you a brisket? Maybe try asking on Reddit in the Italy subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/italy/ lots of multi lingual locals there with a better chance at getting real help (not that we're not real, but the odds are slim a person here has the definitive resolution)


          I think you might be going about this wrong. Instead of a butcher try going to BBQ restaurant and ask them. I would think they would have some BBQ restaurants


            UPDATE - the Jewish (Kosher) butcher came through!! Picked it up today. Thanks again for the suggestion that got me to the right place!! So remaining question is how do you smoke a brisket Happily, have Meathead's Authentic Texas-Style smoked brisket recipe!

              I use that recipe often. I like it.

            I would start with Meathead's recipe. It's very good. However, if it isn't exactly to your taste, you can change it to suit you.

              First-time smoking a brisket and this recipe came through. Was great. All wood after charcoal to start. Only problem I had was the stall. Even though I wrapped both pieces (I separated flat and point) early, still had trouble getting past it. In the end, also based on info in the recipe, I upped the head to 325 or so for last few hours and it did the trick. Have a lot to learn.


                Now you need to convert some of your Italian friends to smoked brisket
