Sizing: 10 # to 13 # average
Holstein Breed: Sourced from USDA Prime Holstein cattle within California and Arizona. This is a whole brisket, sometimes called a “Packer” brisket, so it will be the combination of the point and the flat in one piece. Being Prime, they are nicely marbled, and to my eye, fall somewhere between the Angus and the Wagyu in terms of marbling. Since from Holstein, they will tend to be a little smaller than are the Angus or Wagyu.
Age: No dry aging with this product. There really isn’t a valid reason to dry age this cut; by nature of the cooking method whether smoked or braised, the slowness of the process will assure tenderness. The flavor will naturally jump because of the marbling
PACKAGING & SHELF LIFE
Shelf Life: 10-12 Days in original packaging
Packaging: The Briskets will arrive individually vacuum packaged and are packed 2 per case. We are comfortable with up to 12 days of shelf life, though the primal can go longer under ideal circumstances (but that would require inspecting each package to be sure they are still extremely tight). This is especially important with large format items as there will be a higher fail rate than with smaller surfaced portions
