In the first of what might be many questions about preparing for next week's Seder:
I'm making my first brisket. Should I go for the Niman Ranch brisket (sold in SF by Bi-Rite at $9/lb)? Or will the Whole Foods brisket (maybe half the price) be alright or even better? When I talked to the folks at Bi-Rite, they said Niman Ranch brisket might be a bit less fatty. Is that a good thing when cooking brisket?
The Niman Ranch brisket of course isn't kosher, but that's not a concern for this particular seder.
Also -- I'm planning on using the coffee brisket recipe that I found on this board last week and now can't find but have printed out somewhere.
Thanks in advance.
