National Brisket and/or Hamburger Day

donmdonm Posts: 10,241 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

Meatlovers arise!! You have a choice today as it is both National Brisket Day and National Hamburger Day. One could, of course, find a way to enjoy both in the same day. If you had a choice, best burger ever or best brisket ever, what might you choose? I think I'd go with the brisket, if only because I have fewer opportunities to enjoy that treat. You?

    I'm honestly not a brisket guy. I'd love to try one of the really good places in Texas but in the deep south I stick to pork.

    Wish I'd known about burger day but I had some great ones Sunday night!

    Combine both! One of the best burgers I've had, was made from ground brisket.

    If you're near Atlanta, you can get cross both off with one dish. Go to Fox Bros Bar-B-Q and get the Fox Bros "Burger" -- Brisket on a bun with bacon, tomato, onion, pickles and pimento cheese.

    Now THAT is the kind of either/and thinking I like! Kudos Henly!!!

    Love a good brisket. Of course, love a good burger too but those are easier to come by. Best burger I've had recently is at Stockyard at Marietta Square.

  • donmdonm Posts: 10,241 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Are there train tracks running by that place? If so, it may have been the first place friends ever took me in the "city" when I moved to Carrollton. That was back in '81 so I can't recall too clearly the name of the place. But I do recall the RR tracks.

    Yeah, train tracks are actually just a storefront down (next to a pretty good sushi/thai place called Thaicoon). But I think Stockyard's only been there about 3-4 years, it's fairly new, at least on the Square.

  • donmdonm Posts: 10,241 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Is there a very large bar in that vicinity. This place was pretty big.

  • GeoffDawgGeoffDawg Posts: 1,272 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    There are several large bars nearby like Hemingway's and Johnnie McCracken but like most places on the Square, the restaurant itself is fairly small. Here's an image I found online.

    Dear hubby is allergic to red meat so no brisket or hamburger for me. I hope the rest of you enjoy this day.

  • orlandoorlando Posts: 2,322 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Local burger shack offers a miss piggy, 6oz burger with pulled pork, slaw, and Carolina sauce. Off the chain good !

    The wife had a lamb and brisket burger at Beauty & Essex in NYC this weekend and said it was the best she’s ever had. Hard to beat a good brisket.

    Scoot bro I hear ya. I like brisket and enjoy all types of Q from different parts, but there is a saying down here in TN “ if you want brisket head to Texas real southern Q is pork.”

  • cory430cory430 Posts: 913 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    While this is true, I've gotten to where I enjoy BBQ beef more than pork.

  • JRT812JRT812 Posts: 4,697 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    For burgers I use a combo of short ribs, brisket and ground. Really good stuff

  • ghostofuga1ghostofuga1 Posts: 8,852 mod

    I enjoy both. But I can get a 10 lb pork butt for around $16 to $17. A 10 lb brisket is around $60 and they rarely ever go on sale.....

  • JRT812JRT812 Posts: 4,697 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    The local Kroger had a sale not to long ago where it was buy one butt and get one free. They weren’t the best looking butts but shoot I got almost 18lbs of meat for right under 20 bucks. It was like 19.37 or something. Usually hit my butcher up, but I couldn’t pass on that deal. They turned out pretty decent

    Interesting. This is not criticism, but if you substitute chuck for the ground, then you know exactly what is in your concoction. Note: most ground is chuck, but this way you know for sure. Oh, and you have better control of the fat.

    When visiting Maine (lobster country) last year we had BBQ combo sandwich of brisket and pork meat - best sandwich ever! Smokey’s just outside of Mt Desert Island & Acadia National Park.
