Have had my FE 100 a couple of months now and just completed my seventh cook. Been a terrible winter for cooking outside in Wisconsin. Had a chance to get two frozen Waygu briskets, one seven lbs and the other eight lbs. picked them up for $8.79 a pound on Monday. Never paid that much before but had a family thing coming up and thought I would splurge and try it. Thawed out in the fridge and about two in the morning on Friday opened the packages rinsed and got started. Noticed an odor, not like meat going bad, just different. Cooked them up (whole nuther story) took em off at 190, wrapped the papered brisket in foil and placed in the cooler.
Now I've gotta say, I was looking for a moist brisket and they were. Just dripping juice. Sliced nicely and tried a piece. Now, that smell I mentioned before is how that brisket tasted. Does not seem to be "bad", just has a beer like or fermented kind of taste. Taste is so hard to describe. Does Waygu have a different taste? We're not sick but I need to figure out if I need to be talking to my butcher about getting some money back. Appreciate any help you can offer. Nothing comes up on the search box for taste.
