Serve authentic Central Texas brisket without using a smoker or grill. We partnered with Southside Market & Barbeque, the oldest BBQ joint in Texas, to create a smoked, fully cooked American Wagyu brisket. This is a bona fide Texas brisket - seasoned with just salt and pepper and smoked low and slow in a traditional offset smoker fueled with Texas post oak. Arrives frozen. Just thaw, heat and devour.

Southside Market and Barbeque is the oldest BBQ joint in Texas and has decades of experience smoking award-winning BBQ. They start with Snake River Farms American Wagyu Black Grade briskets and give them the full Texas Q treatment.

The result is traditional Texas-style brisket that’s tender and packed with flavor.

The smoked, fully cooked brisket arrives frozen. Simply thaw, heat and get ready for a Texas BBQ Experience.

Beef Grading 101

This brisket is American Wagyu Black Grade, rated 6 to 8 on the Japanese Beef Marbling Score (BMS)

Beef sold in the U.S. is graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are eight total grades and the top grade is USDA Prime.

All Snake River Farms American Wagyu beef grades above Prime. Special breeds of cattle like Japanese Wagyu are capable of producing intramuscular fat beyond their American counterparts. To grade this high level of marbling, we adopted the Japanese Beef Marbling Score.

Using BMS, beef marbling is measured on a scale from 1 to 12, with a 1 being Select beef and a 12 being the highest level of marbling possible.

This full brisket is identified as a 120 Beef Brisket, Deckle-Off, Boneless by the North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP). This is made up of the flat or deep pectoral muscle (NAMP 120A) and the point or superficial pectoral muscle (NAMP 120B. The deckle, the hard fat and intercostal meat on the inside surface of the brisket, is removed. This is frequently referred to as a full packer brisket.

Fast fact: Each beef carcass has just two briskets. One on each side of the chest area. Despite the barbecue mythology, there is no discernible difference between the right and left briskets.
