    Joey877 Oh I wasn't saying I would buy SRF/high quality normally but am starting to consider it for special occasions especially if it is on sale.

    I think it would be fun to experiment.

    I love getting these packages from SRF. They do a great job.

    You should trim off that fat and render it down for tallow. I use the tallow to cook all kinds of stuff. It is the hidden kick back of a Wagyu Brisket!

    I have never done Wild Fork. I've sourced from Creekstone, SRF, and Crowd Cow. Crowd Cow is off the list due to quality issues on their chicken, so that leaves me with Creekstone and SRF. Agree with you that as the cost of meat at the grocery store keeps going up I'm more likely to buy from premium folks like SRF

    I completely get it, ecowper. Like I said, I would have done the exact same thing in this case. Enjoy it!

    I don't expect that I will regularly buy Wagyu brisket. This was a case of an upcoming special occasion and the price not being that much more than Prime.

    I am really looking forward to this. I remember what a revelation when I went from Choice to Prime for brisket. I imagine this will be a similar upgrade.

    once I defrost it, I'll know better what I want to do. For now, it's research and plan :-)

    LOL wait until she finds out about the SRF subscription!

    I’d be curious if you plan on trimming it. I have read about people trimming and also skipping it for wagyu.

    I've always been happy with Wild Fork's prices (right now Prime brisket is just over $5/pound) and could never justify paying two to three times more for SNR. If I want wagyu or something better for a special occasion I buy it locally. I don't think I have ever paid as much as SNR charges for any piece of meat. Agree the price gap is currently shrinking, but it's still twice as expensive and the higher end retailers will likely push their prices soon to compensate. Now in this case I would have done exactly what ecowper did due to the incremental pricing, but this feels more like a one-off due to the deal than a normal occurrence.

    That all looks so good! I've never ordered from SRF or Porter for that matter. Is the quality much better than Wild Fork? I think the meat prices we now have for "normal" grade of meat is going to push many people towards the higher end stuff since the price gap is closing.

    I am probably more excited about the pork chops. That maybe wrong.

    You know the brisket is going to be great. Liking the looks of those pork chops too. I’ve never shopped at SRF. Need correct that…….

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
