    At Wal-Mart tonight with my daughter. Browsing through the meat selection I stumbled upon THE WORST Brisket ever. A "full" packer trim...This thing seriously looked like a question mark. It had a chunk the size of my fist taken out of the flat, and most of the cat cap on the point had been cut off. 

    To say that it was trimmed by a retarded drunken monkey, would be an insult to retarded drunken monkeys. 

    This thing was SO bad that I'm not sure that I should even post pics of it. It might cause permanent psychological damage to our members with a weaker constitution. 

    I actually cried on the way home thinking about how the cow that it came from had been insulted.

    Ok...here it is...don't say I didn't warn you.

    Young children, pregnant women, and those with a heart condition should avoid viewing these pictures.

    Yes, this brisket was laying out flat and not folded over on itself.  [​IMG]

    Wow! I have talked to Butchers and USDA Meat Inspectors that have said that it is ok to trim out a bruise or other imperfection as long as the overall meat is wholesome. Maybe that was the case here. Or just a bad or tired meat cutter...JJ

    I dont know if walmart has chosen to down grade the cuts to keep the price lower but they used to carry USDA choice, they (at least my local wally worlds) have switched to USDA select [​IMG]

     This is Walmart where these briskets are USDA Select and this brisket had a bruise or other defect that was cut out giving it this shape.  Also there is way too much fat kept on this for any packer brisket in my opinion.  Should have never been packed for sale.  There are folks out there who are not familiar with cuts of meat and would pick this up.   Most of the beef sold in Walmart is Select grade.  They do have a small space for Choice.  Choice in Walmart is marked Choice and the select grades are marked USDA inspected.  The packer briskets there are marked Select on the cryo packaging.  Reinhard.
