    We went down to Texas over the Thanksgiving week to spend with some friends in New Braunfels. While there we went into HEB a couple of times and decided we really like that store and need one here in Oregon.... Or maybe we just need to move to Texas! 🤣😜

    The most interesting thing about the briskets is that they were selling Prime briskets for about the same price during the summer and now the Prime briskets are about half that price.

    Our local family owned grocery store (not chain) gets SRF Wagyu briskets in once in a while. Still too rich for my blood, but interesting to see outside of the specialty butcher shops.

    Troutman There was a barbecue trailer here in town that served SRF American Wagyu briskets. He told me the price he was able to get them for directly from SRF and I nearly fell over. I believe it was something like $4.29 a pound or something around there. So for a place like HEB I would guess they could buy a pallet or two of briskets from SRF, sell at $5.99 a pound, and still make some decent money.

    Any chance of Texas annexing Ontario?
    Even a full blow invasion would not be frowned upon.

    Steve R. Not sure about his son, I don’t remember hearing any of those commercials. But I guess it’s possible.

    So when are the HERB stores coming to Texas?

  • Troutman
    commented on 's reply
    Yea most of them are Mishima Reserve which is an American Wagyu farm out of Oregon. Every once in a while an SRF makes an appearance, probably their black grade not sure. I can tell you the Mishima's are the real deal, cook up great, better than their Prime 1. Forget the HEB label, that's something they slap on there.

    As for the price, I have no idea how they do it but I kiss the hand of the guy that buys their meat !! Must be a volume deal, that's all I can think is happening.

    Panhead John, I'm thinking his son was Howard Butt, Jr. who did those "The High Calling of Our Daily Work” radio spots up until he died a few years ago?

    We’ve had the Briskets for a month or 2 and Plate Ribs and other Wagyu pieces since the end of the summer. I’m west of Austin.

    My dad had me over sometime during the summer for some Waygu ribeye cap steaks, very good, but they we’re insanely expensive. He claimed it was heart healthy beef, I laughed pretty hard. After doing some research, there is a ranch in Columbus who has one of the largest heards of ‘Wagyu” cattle outside of Japan and they raised the bull that its related to 80% of the ‘Waygu’ cattle outside of Japan.

    There are a growing number of operations raising them in Texas now so it didn’t take long for H-E-B to get ahold of some. my neighbors son who works in the meat dept in my H-E-B says they come just like the other sides of beef and are coming up with different ways to cut them up to take advantage of some of the parts that usually get turned to ground beef. I’ve found boneless chuck ribs which were very good and a chuck eye steak that was great. He says they tried cutting plate ribs, they kept them for themselves and cooked them on the smoker behind the store, it will be interesting to see what they will charge for them when the put them out on the shelf. The Ribeye’s run between $45-50 and I’m sure they have a $ amount they are expecting to get out of each side of beef and are trying to figure out what works and what will sell.

    "The ones I buy have a Mishima Reserve or Snake River Farms label."

    Which annoys me no end - because I can't get that for the HEB price.

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.
