American cuts of beef including the brisket. Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal. The beef brisket is one of the eight beef primal cuts. The brisket muscles include the superficial and deep pectorals. As cattle do not have collar bones, these muscles support about 60% of the body weight of standing/moving cattle

If you’d like for the outside of your brisket to have a bit of a char, unwrap and place under a broiler for a few minutes before serving.  This isn’t necessary at all, but it can add to the feel of pit smoked meat.
