Brisket is the unofficial symbol of Central Texas BBQ, and any self-respecting Texas pitmaster has a singular (and sometimes secret) smoked brisket recipe. Cut from near the shoulder of the steer, the muscle supports a tremendous portion of the animal's weight throughout its life, resulting in tons of tough, stringy connective tissue that can only be broken down by low-and-slow cooking - perfect for the smoker. Smoked brisket is the standard by which all Texas pitmasters are judged, and by starting with this fantastically-marbled USDA Prime Brisket from Dean & Peeler Meatworks in Poth, Texas, even a beginner stands a chance in competition.

Let our butcher wow you with big flavors, big presentation, and a big bone to go along.

The butcher shop's ultimate economy steak, the sirloin steak feeds a small crowd on a budget, with a good dose of marbling while maintaining tenderness when cooked properly. Coming from slightly farther down the loin primal than the top sirloin steak, the sirloin steak takes well to sauces to brighten up the flavors owing to the limited marbling when compared with ribeye-style cuts. Our butcher shop experts recommend pan-searing with any number of easy sauces, allowing the tender texture of the sirloin steak to soak up flavor bits from an iron pan.

Picanha weighs approximately 2.85-3.15 lbs and serves 4-6 people.
Those familiar with Brazilian cuisine (or just the increasingly popular churrascaria steakhouse) will know the picanha, the sirloin cap muscle popular in Brazil as a slow cooked barbecue roast.

The flat iron steak hides within the shoulder's top blade muscle, and is lesser known in the common butcher shop because of the strip of tough fascia that needs to be removed from the muscle in order to access this light, delicate cut. Tender and petite, the flat iron steak comes with a sufficient marbling to pack delicious beef flavor. Perfect steak on its own, but benefits from a side of frites and parsley-shallot butter melting on top. Sourced from Dean & Peeler Meatworks in Poth, Texas.
