The Lobel family of Lobel’s Prime Meats in Manhattan and Lobel’s of New York online butcher shop are fourth- and fifth-generation butchers. With our Cut of the Month series, we will bring you their wealth of knowledge and expertise on specific cuts of meat, including their unique characteristics, preparation methods, and how to select the best cut.
Brisket is one of our more popular cuts. Customers are always asking for it, and we’ve learned over the years that people are passionate about their brisket! That said, brisket is not the same thing to all people. To some, it’s the quintessential cut for good ol’ low-and-slow barbeque. To others, it’s a slow-cooked comfort food. And to others, it’s the centerpiece to a traditional Passover feast.
For these reasons, we’ve selected brisket for this month’s Cut of the Month.

The term barbecue comes from barbacoa, which is purported to translate as “sacred fire pit.” And fittingly so, because we can hardly think of a more transcendent food experience than sinking your teeth into the melt-in-your-mouth results of true low-and-slow barbecue. The results are fully worth waiting and watching for hours upon hours, and the experience is pure bliss.

When it comes to flavor, cooking with wood is the definitive game changer. Meat over a wood fire—it’s a link to our earliest ancestors. It’s earthy and primal and tastes like nothing else. Whether used as fuel, flame accelerator, or smoking medium, wood logs, chunks, and chips contribute their highly individual flavors to the finished dish as equal in importance as any other seasoning, spice, or herb.

When home grilling began its rocket-rise in popularity all over the U.S. in the post-war 50s, everybody was sort of feeling their way along about the special do-it-yourself requirements of cooking over a hot fire. That meant adapting tools that were common to indoor food preparation. As necessity is the mother of invention, reaching and working over a wide, flat cooking surface required extension, which gave us long-handled tongs, spatulas, and forks. It also required more protection than potholders could provide, giving rise to heat-resistant gloves and mitts.

Low and slow. The very words make mouths water. Nothing caps off a lazy summer day more perfectly than a meal of sumptuous proportions from your smoker.
And nothing stokes a smoke master’s ego more than some positive comments about his or her smoke ring. That’s the true test—the visible evidence of the smoke’s penetration. The deeper the smoke ring, the more masterful the man or woman at the helm.
If you think nothing tastes better than food cooked with wood, flame, and smoke, you will discover a whole new world of enjoyment and possibilities when you add smoking to your arsenal of cooking techniques.
