NATIONAL BRISKET DAY
Celebrated annually on May 28, it is National Brisket Day. As one of the nine beef prime cuts, brisket is the cut of meat that comes from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal.
Brisket is best when it is cooked correctly to tenderize the meat. There are many different ways that the perfect cooking process can be done such as slow braising or roasting. Another way that is popular, in the United States, is to rub the brisket with a spice rub or marinating the meat, then cooking it very slowly over indirect heat from charcoal or wood. Many times oak, pecan, hickory or mesquite is added to the other hardwoods to enhance the flavor. Brisket will be fork tender when it is fully cooked and is then served with or without a sauce.
