Beef Burnt Ends

Recommended Posts

So I’ve made pork belly burnt ends using John Setzler’s recipe and method a couple times and although they were really good I did find them a bit fatty.  Maybe I just need to let them render down longer, I don’t know. I know people make them also out of part of the brisket but I’ve never made a brisket and due to the price and size I shy away.  My question is: is there say a five pound or so cut of beef that I could get that would be ideal for making beef burnt ends?

Probably not. Brisket burnt ends are made from the point end. While brisket flats are somewhat common, I’ve never seen just a point for sale.  Most likely you’ll have to use a full packer brisket and seperate the point and flat yourself. 


Look up chuck roast burn ends, aka poor man as burnt ends. It uses just a chuck roast and can be surprisingly similar to brisket burnt ends.
