Prime-Grade Whole Brisket - 7 lbs.

The Texas King and Schmidt’s biggest seller! This brisket is U.S.D.A. Prime-grade beef seasoned with bold and flavorful spices. It’s slow-smoked 18 to 20 hours using post oak wood to impart that true Central Texas flavor.

The Schmidt family is Central Texas barbecue royalty, with family roots in ‘cue dating back more than 80 years. Patriarch Edgar “Smitty” Schmidt began working at Lockhart’s renowned Kreuz Market back in 1936 and bought the business in 1948. The legendary barbecue joint was passed down to Smitty’s children and grandchildren, and in 2013 Edgar’s grandchildren expanded the family tradition by opening Schmidt Family Barbecue.
