Got $550 burning a hole in your pocket? Foodways Texas, in partnership with the Meat Science Section in the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M University, will hold a 2 day brisket symposium in January of 2013.
What does the tariff get you in return?
* Access to debates over which grade beef makes for the best brisket
* What type of smoker you should be using
* Butcher paper wrapping of brisket advisability
* Presumably more
Professors and pit bosses will be delivering the lectures at the symposium dubbed "Camp Brisket"
Sounds like a lot of money to us but there are plenty well heeled folks who'll regard this as a sound investment.
Tickets go on sale on December 1st to the general public.
