Melbourne - Looking for 7kg brisket by Easter

Post by laxation » Mon Mar 21, 2016 3:13 pm

Does anyone know where I could get a 6-7kg brisket?

I work in Port Melbourne, so I'm close to the two markets (Sth Melb and Queen Vic) if anyone knows a butcher there that will have one handy.
Pretty much needs to be somewhere within 30min of Port Melbourne so I can get there in my lunch break.

I tried Berties Butcher, but they're not sure if they can get one bigger than 5kg, so will call me back tomorrow.

Yep, costco. I picked up a 6.5kg one on the weekend. A lot cheaper than anywhere else I could find also.

Just picked up an 8kg one. They had a 10kg, but unfortunately it was to expire on Friday, and I need it for Saturday. A real shame, I would have loved some brisket left overs! (Who am I kidding, there's never leftovers...)

I wouldn't worry about expiry dates considering you can wet age in the cryovac bags, would only get better!

I thought that might be the case, but didn't want to risk it.

The 10kg had a lot of hard fat on it that would have to be cut off anyway, so I'm not going to lose any sleep over it!

Always next year for the next 20 hour brisket :)
(Definitely worth staying up all night for though... couple years ago it won me flights to texas!)
