FAQs about brisket

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) offers eight beef quality grades. The highest-quality meats receive a prime grade and go down from there to choice, select, standard, commercial, utility, cutter, and canner. The only grades you'll find at your local grocery store will be prime, choice, and select. Some retail outlets offer standard, but only rarely. Two things impact the grading of beef, the amount of marbling or fat and the animal's age at the time of slaughter. 

Prime grade beef has the highest marbling, which may seem counterintuitive. Yet, the marbling of fat renders into the meat, adding flavor and improving tenderness. Fat should not be confused with connective tissue. For the best brisket cut, look for the highest grade. Just remember, the higher the grade, the more expensive the meat.

You can store fresh brisket in your refrigerator for up to five days, depending on how fresh it was when you purchased it. Brisket, like all beef, turns gray with age because of oxidation. If your brisket turns gray, you may want to discard it for a fresher piece, as this can be a sign of spoilage. You can put your brisket in a vacuum-sealed bag and freeze it for extended storage. In your freezer, brisket can last six to eight weeks or longer.
