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‚Äôs weight throughout its life, resulting in tons of tough, stringy connective tissue that can only be broken down by low-and-slow cooking ‚Äî 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.

Described by our butcher as "the porkiest pork you can get," our Red Wattle pork chops are an extremely juicy, flavorful and tender lean meat. Our Red Wattle pork is humanely raised without antibiotics or hormones at Smith & Smith Farms in Burlington, Texas.
