Full Packer Brisket - Brisket core approx. 3.00 - 4.00 kg
from the Austrian calf (heifer)
On stock and ready for shipping
The highlight for your barbecue experience! Our Full Packer Briskets are an absolute hit! They are ready for the grill and still have a small layer of fat, which can be grilled or removed in a few cuts.
What would the "holy BBQ trinity" be without a Full Packer Brisket? That's right, rather simple-minded! Because hardly anything is as coveted as the delicious brisket core from calf (heifer). Whether as a roast for slow-smoking or for delicious pastrami - everyone should treat themselves to this taste experience once.
Brisket is also known as the brisket core and is located on the side of the brisket. They consist of the flat and the point. The flat is the large pectoralis muscle and the point is the smaller pectoralis muscle. These two muscles are separated by a wide layer of fat that runs through the entire flat.
What really matters with briskets?
It should be noted that not every brisket of a calf / heifer is automatically suitable for a Full Packer Brisket. Both the point and the flat must be nicely pronounced and have as nice a shape as possible. They also need to be matured and professionally trimmed.
For preparation, the cut is already pretty great by itself. Beef should always be cut across the grain so that the meat remains tender and juicy. In the case of full-pack brisket, this is a particular stroke of luck, as the muscle fibres of the flat and point already run across each other. (The calf / heifer has already thought about this).

Herkunft und Haltung
Quality is our highest concern, and in the case of beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimal feeding, free of concentrated feed. However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements.
Because we don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That is why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the Waldviertel in Lower Austria, in Salzburg and in neighbouring Upper Austria. In addition, at Fitmeat we only process the finest meat from heifers and steers.
The meat has a wonderful marbling and taste. Our classic cattle breeds include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.
Our cattle are 4x AT certified. This means that birth, rearing, butchering and refinement take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria.
We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. Therefore, we rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.
Our butchers let the cuts mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
