Montreal Smoked Meat - Half Brisket


There’s nothing like Montreal Smoked Meat. While similar to a NYC pastrami or even somewhat a Texas style brisket, nobody is producing meat like our neighbors to the north. This half brisket is the pure smoked goodness with nothing but the meat.

More Details

This package only includes house cured and smoked Montreal Smoked Meat- a 4.5-5 lb half brisket, unsliced. It does not come with any anything else; no rye bread, pickles or mustard.

Choose between a FULL CUT which is both the lean and fattier portion or the LEAN CUT which is only the less fatty portion. While you might think less fat is the no brainer choice, the marbling (aka fat) is what gives brisket its flavor.

Instructions / Storage

Mile End Deli’s fresh meats should be enjoyed within 2 days of arrival and stored in the refrigerator or can be frozen for up to 2 months; please try to remove as much air from the packaging as possible before freezing.

Once you’re ready to slice, be sure to cut against the grain of the meat for the best cuts of smoked meat.

Smoked Meat can be enjoyed cold, but if you prefer to warm the meat we recommend doing so by steaming. The best way to steam is by placing a steamer insert into a medium sauce pot that has a 1/2 inch of water below the base of the steam tray insert. An easy alternative, that is also great for a quick clean up, would be to fill the pot with a 1/2 inch of water and wrap aluminum foil over the top with a 2 inch depression towards the bottom of the pot. Gently poke holes to allow the steam to escape. Once the water is steaming, place the meat on top of the insert or foil and cover the pot for 1-2 minutes or until desired temperature has been reached.

The Montreal Smoked Brisket was delicious and perfectly tender, we opted not to use the rye bread with it as the brisket was too gently flavored the rye overpowered the brisket.

Most was delicious, too much corned beef tho compared to the amt of the really excellent dressing. Way too many dill pickles, as I don’t care for them at all. The rye bread could have been fresher. It was so expensive, it kinda hurts when not as expected.
