I respect the Cowboys too! The match ups between the Giants and the Cowboys always seem to be important no matter how good or bad the teams are playing!

Right on SMF bro, here's to a great season for the G-men & Boys !

Well.... Here she is all done for the day...



Stole a piece and the flavor is good.

Will be steamed in a couple of nights and sliced to share with my friends and family. Thanks for looking!

So I steamed it up today...

My makeshift steamer:




Brought it up to 203 IT which was tricky since it was far from uniform thickness and the thicker part was probing at a higher IT than the thinner part.

Here is it:




Verdict: tasty, tender but on the dryer side. I saw this coming however because there was no fat cap really and it looked like it was a huge flat only. Not sure if theres any truth to it but really huge briskets come from older cows. Could I assume they are a bit tougher. This was a flat only and it was almost 9 pounds. Also said on the nutrional info that it's only 8 grams of a fat per serving which seems very low for a corned beef. either way, it won't go to waste and for the little I paid for it it will get thoroughly enjoyed by friends and family.
