Fairfield County/Brisket for Texan friend?

ChefBoyAreMe | Jan 5, 2009 01:00 PM

Does anyone know where in lower Fairfield or nearby Westchester one would find a brisket for smoking, the way they sell them in Texas?

I have a friend who moved here, and is complaining that the only briskets he can find are the cleaned up, nearly fat free briskets you'd make corned beef out of, and not the full fat covered cut he's familiar with from back home. As a result, he can't really make a good, smoked Texas style brisket.

I checked with my guy at Shop Rite, where they have everything, and he says they don't get them, and can't even order them there. The guy's at Smokey Joe's on the Post Road get them, but from a few wholesale suppliers (Sysco, etc.), but they don't do retail.

Any hounds know of a source for the proper smokin' cut of brisket in the area?
