Default Wagyu Brisket

I know it's not the real stuff but man o man what a brisket. Seasoned with a little 2 Gringos Chupacabra Brisket magic then heavy on the S&P. Smoked it hot 300+ to and internal temp of 160 then did the Texas crutch and pulled it off at around 207F when it was probe tender. Juiciest most tender brisket I have ever experienced!!!

Wrapping it in aluminum foil to help it get past the stall, a lot of times the brisket will hit 185 and stay there for hours, it also helps keep it moist.

wrapping in foil to get it beyond the 165 mark into the 190s... basically avoiding the stall.

At $6 it's for sure not full blooded Wagyu, probably mixed with Angus (it could be a very low % of Wagyu and still labelled as such). Still tasty beef though.

Lots of confusion between Wagyu and Kobe

When I looked up the description of Wagyu it said a Wagyu sire with an American Black Angus cross.

To be considered "Kobe", the cow has to be of the Kuroge breed (1 of 4 Wagyu breeds) and fulfill several other characteristics.

"Weigh less than 470 Kg
Meat quality rating of 4 and higher
Be a virgin cow
Marbling rating of more than 6
Fed on a farm within the Hyogo Prefecture
Meat should be processed within the set Hyogo Prefecture"

So when someone says "that can't be Wagyu... It's too cheap" they're likely referring to Kobe. Oftentimes Kobe is mislabeled/represented, though. Saw a "kobe brisket" at the meat market once for <$150. In that instance, Yes... the price is a dead giveaway. In other words, Kobe is Wagyu but Wagyu is not necessarily Kobe.

I'm no expert. Still trying to learn myself. Would love for someone more knowledgeable than myself to provide some further insight.

Fewer than 200 full blooded wagyu were imported into the US in the 90s, and that was all we could get from Japan (export ban). You can guess how small the pureblood herd still is. Most of that heard is specifically used as breeding stock with Angus to produce cross breeds.

So getting real 100% Wagyu for anything but what you'd consider a ridiculous price, isn't happening. It doesn't command the 100s of dollars per lb that kobe does, but if you're paying less than $50/lb I'd assume it's Wangus.

You are correct. Thanks for the insight!

I just looked saw a Japan Wagyu steak online.

A single 12oz. Ribeye for $127.50, and a chef doesn't come with it. It is not Kobe since it isn't raised in Kobe and not to their stringent requirements but Wagyu from Kagoshima, Japan. At $170 a pound I am assuming that is some fairly good meat even if not from Kobe.

Better hurry, "only" 8 left.

Oh yeah, free shipping......

Wagyu is the most tender and tastiest beef Iíve ever eaten. Smoked a wagyu tenderloin recently that nearly melted in your mouth!
