Description

Brisket is a tougher cut of meat that can be counteracted with long, slow cooking. Cooked slow and long enough the abundance of connective tissue will break down and gelatinize into rich, tender meat for an unforgettable pot roast. Brisket is the cut used for corned beef and pastrami. And of course, the brisket is the king of smoking. Simply rub it with your favorite seasoning and indirectly smoke on charcoal for 4-6 hours. This beast weighs around 7kg (15lbs) - make sure you have enough freezer space.

New Zealand Beef

Our New Zealand beef comes from the Canterbury area of the southern island of New Zealand. The cows are raised on local ranches (referred to as cattle stations in New Zealand) which are family-owned and run. The animals are grass-fed on open pastures their entire lives. Then, 200 days before harvesting, the cows are fed a mix of vegetarian feed consisting of all-locally sourced GMO-free natural grains, silage, hay, molasses, oilseed meals and legumes for a consistent beef flavor and texture. At no point are the animals confined in tight spaces or are force-fed. The finishing feedlots are very spacious and animals are absolutely free to roam on over 6000 square meters. At no point are growth-hormones or antibiotics used.
