What is it? How do you cook it?

Well, brisket is the cut of beef that comes from the breast or lower chest of the cow (scroll for more detail). As cows don’t actually have any collarbones, this part of the cow supports its weight. So, that means that there is a bit of connective tissue in brisket.
But that's good! Brisket is one of the best cuts for all that low and slow cooking that we love.

We absolutely love our brisket here, so we thought we should share our recipe for a prefect low & slow brisket.

Save this recipe! You really don't want to lose it!
