Where to find good beef brisket in Melbourne - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Where to find good beef brisket in Melbourne

    Hi guys,

    Haven't been on here for a while, but I am having trouble finding good American style beef brisket in Melbourne and was wondering if anyone else has had any luck.

    I would have thought some of you out there may have tried an American BBQ style brisket either in the WFO or a Webber. But having spoken to a few local butchers in the SE suburbs (I'm in Lyndhurst) I am struggling!

    If anyone has tried it, your experiences and tips would also be appreciated. I am thinking of firing to pizza one day and then using the residiual heat and a smoker box the next day to get a real southern BBQ style meat cooked for a full day.

    Any, thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Try Preston market, thankfully due to the great variety of different cultures that live in the area they sell every type of meat imaginable.
    The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

    My Build.

      Would have thought any butcher should have brisket or pot roast.

        I bought a rolled brisket from the Preston market (Vietnamese butcher) and slow cooked it in the WFO, it fell apart and was amazing (but a very fatty).....

        I know what you mean about american style brisket which is a solid piece of meat ( I lived in NYC for a few years). From what I understand the brisket is the fore-shank without the bone, but i am not sure what we call that in OZ. I think that this is the same as a corned beef but without the brine injection process.

        I am no expert and this is all speculation, but find a good butcher and have a chat.

        good luck and let us know how you go.
