    Yesterday's Angus burgers were both a hit and a miss. I take full responsibility for the cooking technique involved. Used a cull chimney of Weber Professional briquets, mainly so I can use up the bag and go back to Weber Originals.

    These Angus patties from Fry's were a bit thicker than last week's brisket patties, although both were 1/2 pounders. Neither came in plastic wrapped meat tray, but were wrapped in butcher paper, so the difference may be due to being squished a bit when wrapped, I dunno.

    The brisket patties were pre-mixed with seasoning, the Angus were not pre-seasoned. The brisket patties were far more flavorful and drier, but cooked well done. I cooked the Angus to medium to make them more juicy and tender, which they were. BUT, GW took her patty out and nuked it for 30 seconds 'cause ut wasn't done enough for her. Even my Angus patty did not compare to the well done brisket patty.

    I need to adjust cooking time for brisket patties, but not by much. We love the seasoning the butcher used with the brisket patties (seen below), and we will likely go with them over the Angus patties, YMMV

    Brisket should be savored by slicing it and eating with your fingers, or at worst, with a fork.
    Okay, I'll meet you half way and eat my ground brisket burgers with my hands, no forks allowed!

    Further investigation reveals these from Fry's for today are 80%-20% Angus Chuck patties.

    Oh yeah, in fact we're having Angus patties from Kroger-owned Fry;s for supper tonight! Don't know the protein/fat blend because
    GW brought 'em home, and she didn't look.

The big diff is in the taste of the fats and cooking technique. Brisket makes a fine burger. But % fat is also important, and the age of the fat, and what the animal was fed which alters the fat. I made a great burger once from a very lean rump cut blended with fat trimmed from aged ribeye.

    Has anyone tried the 1/3 lb 75%-25% Angus ground beef patties from Costco? They're in a package of 18 patties, which is too many to buy without some idea of how good they are, or aren't. We're not going to grind our own meat any more, so we're looking for good quality in ore-made patties. We do burgers over charcoal.

    I only purchase 1 brisket per year. It’s always a prime grade from Costco. Problem is they are so damn big and I work really hard to trim away almost all of the hard fat. It’s a lot of work. I usually grind Chuck roast for burgers making sure that I use all of the fat. They are very flavorful.

    I almost always cut the thin end of a brisket flat off because it's just going to be over cooked by the time the rest is ready. I freeze them and the fat I trim from around the point. When I have several I will thaw and grind them. I tried using a scale, but now I just get it so that I like the way it looks. Just thinking about it makes me want a nice crusty smash burger.

    A local barbecue place here saves their good brisket trimmings and grinds that into burgers once a week. They then smoke the patties and when someone orders them they give them a quick sear. Some of the best burgers I have had.

    I like grinding brisket and short rib meat together for burgers. Some sirloin flap (or bavette) is also good in there. And of course it is hard to be chuck. Any combination of those 4 should get you enough fat and flavor for a good burger.

    I’ll grind anything. The last grind was brisket and Wagyu pichana fat. Why?? Because that’s what I had. Super good.

    Also have ground bacon into brisket plenty. Addicting.

    Happy eating!
