Just took delivery of my Packer cut Brisket and Breast ribs from Turner & George. After all of the write ups excited was an understatement, Loshy thinks I'm daft!!!
However the box was dropping to bits when it arrived, soaking wet, the delivery driver thought it was going to fall to bits as he handed it over. It was in a large plastic bag but undetered I opened it up and found that inside the box (as described on line) was some 10mm expanded foam around the sides, top and bottom and 4 small ice bags. The ice bags were about halfway gone but hey it had done its job but only just. Thats recyclyable packaging for you!
The picture on line showed a fully trimmed rack of ribs and I had the opportunity of either a 1KG pack or 2.5KG pack. Well I'm having people over so thought get the 2.5kg pack, thinking it will be about 3 racks at about 750gm plus eacg, but no just one bone in belly with the skin removed, WTF!!!!! I could have done that with a one from Mackro!!!! Dissapointed!!!!
Well I moved moved over to the Packer Cut Brisket, the 6.66KG star of the show for Saturday's BBQ. Decided to trim it and refrigerate before cooking late on Friday evening. Having watched every video there is on "trimming" a brisket (Franklins too) with a bit of trepidation I opened it up! My first thought was wow very little fat cap just smoe snotty bits, that's great it will go straight in the smoker. But on turning it over "quell suprise" just acres and acres of hard Fat! There wasnt really a point either just Fat! Now not having had a packer cut before, i'm wondering is this me being picky??????? but all of the videos I have see it didnt look like this and they all said you need to get rid of the big sections of hard fat. But after trimming 1.3KG of fat I have had to stop.
Is this me being picky or have I been robbed??????
Posting pics on next thread as I am having problems
