This is truly one-of-a-kind. Traditionally thinly sliced and *then* cooked, we've preserved the entire flat for you to throw in the smoker or oven. We've tried it ourselves and found it to be out-of-this world.
These brisket flats have already been trimmed, so you don't have to worry about discarding pounds of unwanted fat or waste. Just season it with salt and pepper and enjoy. The fat cap is about a quarter inch thick across the board, although in some areas it may be slightly less. Don't worry, the amazing tenderness and intramuscular fat of Japanese Wagyu will ensure a delicious finished product if you treat it right.
Based on our trials, we recommend smoking this fat side up and wrapping when you hit the stall, which in our tests was about 160F. Wrapping will also ensure more of the subtleties of meat come through too, since you don't really need to hit this beautiful piece of meat with smoke for +12 hours. For the same reason, it's also perfectly fine to cook this in the oven, where it's easier to control the temperature.
You may ask why this is sold as a flat and not a packer cut, but rest assured that this piece of meat can hold its own. Your average brisket flat would typically have a hard time by itself on the smoker, but the level of marbling your get with A5 Japanese Wagyu is a game changer in this regard.
Enjoy delicious meat and seafood raised under the highest standards using no unnecessary antibiotics.
We believe animals should develop at their own pace — 100% free of artificial growth hormones — the way nature intended.
We personally know each producer we work with and ensure you get meals full of mouth-watering flavor.
Animal welfare is of utmost importance to us, and we only work with farms and producers that provide humane and clean living environments for their livestock. Better living conditions (more space to roam, access to clean water and shelter, etc.) mean animals are naturally healthier — so antibiotics simply aren't necessary. In the rare cases where an animal gets sick or requires medical attention, antibiotics are only used therapeutically — never to promote growth or to "proactively" prevent diseases.
We believe animals should develop at their own pace — 100% free of artificial growth hormones. In other markets, animals are not typically provided enough space to build up their muscle, so hormones are given to promote growth. In contrast, our farms take the extra time, care, and effort to allow their animals to grow the way nature intended, gaining weight naturally. This translates to not only the safety and health of the animals, but also the premium quality of our products.
We have strong relationships with each producer we work with and have done our homework to ensure they meet our high standards. We only supply meat and seafood that we'd put on our own tables — a product that's delicious and raised ethically, cleanly, and sustainably — always taste-tested by experts and better than anything you can find in your grocery store.
