Here in Canada, most supermarkets sell Maple Leaf brand brisket. It's
usually a small piece, it's already seasoned and comes in a bag that you're
supposed to pierce several times with a fork and then boil (in the bag) for
90 minutes, then brown in the over for 15 minutes.

Anyone try this? I'd be surprised if it were any good, but what if I were
to simply rince it off and prepare it in a decent manner over the barbecue?
I can't seem to find a butcher here in Montreal that has a decent price for
brisket, so I'm wondering if using Maple Leaf's brisket would do the
trick...

Any comments?

Thanks!

You live in a Socialist State. That implies a certain 'horizontality' to the
whole affair. Call your MP and ask for CDN.$99/lb Whole Packer-cut Briskets.
Barbecue the result.

You are welcome.

Souds like a take-off of corned beef brisket possibly;
If it's not trimmed too well (still has a lot of fat on and
in between) I'd try BBQ'ing it. If it looks lean, I'd probably
stick with boiling it (and adding liquid smoke :-)

Haven't tried it barbequed but it makes a fair New England Boiled Dinner.
Haven't done it in the bag though - take it out of the bag into a pot, add
some stock and water to cover, slow simmer a couple of hours. Preheat oven
to about 250, cover meat with foil and place in oven to keep warm when done.
Add favorite root vegs to stock and boil about 30 minutes, cabbage if you
like last 10 minutes. Slice meat, put on platter, surround with veges,
serve with sweet pickles and Dijon mustard on the side.

Follow on - the Maple Leaf brand is ok, but mediocre. Look carefully and
you may find a local meat packer that sells a better grade, or you can corn
a brisket yourself if you want to go that direction. A bit expensive but
you get a lot of meat so prorated per meal it's actually quite economical.

I wish I could find it at that price... Can you believe that one butcher
wanted
5 bucks a pound !!!!!!!!!!!!! I admit, it was 5 CDN bucks, but still,
quite a
bit if you want a decent size chunk o' meat!

Thanks! :)

Yeah, I think it's the corned beef variety... Looks pretty lean.
Maybe I should try it as per directions just for kicks...

Btw, don't ever mention the words 'liquid' and 'smoke' side-by-side
in THIS newsgroup... :)

Sounds much better than boiling it in the bag... Thanks!

Dear Hound. Socialist state? Oh goodness, how ignorant of you. Canada is a Social Democracy which is completely different from Socialism. A Social Democracy is a capitalist society (you know what that means don't you? ...go make money?) and the taxes the government collects provides Canadian citizens with social services like health care, social programs that benefit children, seniors, people with disabilities and the poor. Yeah..your comment is decades old, but what the hell - when faced with sheer and complete stupidity one simply must reply.
