    1. This is great news! They did this a in the past and the Q is GREAT! I will be planning on getting some

      1. I'd like to hear from a few more people who've had this. Is it really good? Tender? Tasty?

        It's not so much the money (of course that's some of it :-) ) but I don't want to suddenly be stuck on Purim without food.
        I'll be making chicken and various sides too, but I would have this for the die-hard meat eaters in my crowd.

          Admittedly I am bit biased since I have family in Memphis - Corky’s is one of the premier traif BBQ places in Memphis which happens to be owned by member of the Academy community – so every time they replace a smoker they will typically do run of beef before putting into service in the store as a fundraiser. These runs have typically been sold locally. About 10 years ago as I recall they a similar offering if shipping frozen BBQ across the country – my parents had sent us some of that batch to Skokie – the FedEx was curious as to what was in the box because the majority of his load were shipments of Corky’s BBQ –

          No on to the product – It is excellent! Tender and tasty! BBQ made by a true pit master who earns his keep by doing barbecue professionally and they do deliver as promised so you will have your Purim Seudah food!

        2. Frozen? We already have plans for Purim but this would make an awesome treat for when the house is too Pesach-ed to cook.

            It is vacuum packed and shipped with dry ice - I can add that it does hold up well in the freezer -what we had gotten shipped to us I think we ate the last of it 2-3 months after we received it-

            1. re: SoCal Mother

              As a kosher chef & pitboss who smoked over 15,000lbs of bbq last year, you can believe me when I say that bbq brisket really does freeze very well with negligible effect on the meat itself. In fact, if you think about it, true bbq, by which I don't mean what Yankees up here think of as merely putting bbq sauce on something before sticking it in the oven or at best over a grill, but TRUE BBQ is long and slow process of SMOKING meats which was innovated as a way of preservation. Even in a fridge at 40degrees or lower, a properly smoked brisket will last over a month!

              More then anything, I am curious what this Corky's smoke ring looks like. If anyone does order this, please post a pic with your tasting notes for the rest of us! Shavua tov y'all!

                gotcholent I should be able to honor that - am in Memphis and a s a precursor to shipping the Q out for the community they smoked for Super Bowl Sunday and going to a house that supposedlty had order some for the gatheing - so if I am able I take a picture and post -

                1. re: weinstein5

                  sorry no pictures they had gotten the smoked brisket and made pulled BBQ beef - it was delicious

                2. re: gotcholent

                  Am a BBQ novice. What is a smoke ring and where did you find it to order? I checked the link above and the regular traif website and saw nothing called a smoke ring. Have to live and learn. Thanks

                  1. re: susieha

                    Hi Susieha. A smoke ring is not something you buy! It actually is a by-product of the smoking process. When you cut the meat you see a layer of color just under the surface of the meat. People look for that in "real" barbecue. It is great that you asked the question because now you know! The first time I got a smoke ring on something I barbecued it felt good and I knew I was learning.

                    1. re: PinchOfSalt

                      Thank you so much for the answer. I have a feeling I gave all the BBQ pros out there a great laugh but now I know what to look for and try for. Thanks again.

                    2. re: susieha

                      will not be on their regular site - to confusing - try this

                    3. re: gotcholent

                      The brisket we received didn't have any discernible smoke ring, although it might have been because of all the bbq sauce slathered on it. I didn't really taste it but someone else said it had a smoky, beef jerky like taste to it.

                      The ribs on the other hand had the smoke ring you described and were a big hit

                      1. re: sadg95

                        Thanks for the PIX!!! Those do look lovely! I think Ganeden was right on...this is definitely a part of the country that takes their ribs very seriously!

                  2. I can't wait to get my order
