This is by far the best way to cook grass fed brisket. Without a sous vide, you could never get the amazing texture and while the smoking is optional, it is highly recommended.

More About Cooking Our Dark Meat

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: cooking tips, member news, newsletter, handbook

But it also can make cooking it more challenging if you don't know what to expect. Here, we take the time to explain a little more about the HOW and the WHY of cooking TC Farm Chicken.
