What is Brisket

If you’re a fan of barbecue, then you’ve probably heard of brisket. But what is it, exactly? Brisket is a cut of beef that comes from the breast or lower chest area of the cow.

It’s a tough cut of meat, which means it needs to be cooked slowly in order to break down the collagen and connective tissue. When done right, brisket is juicy, tender, and flavorful.
