Sher Wagyu

I first met Sher Wagyu around May 2013. The first part of my BBQ journey was about finding BBQ Equipment; this took up a lot of my time initially. Once most things were in place, I realised I had to find fantastic suppliers of meat, to ensure what I cooked, was going to taste amazing. I tried Victoria, Prahran and South Melbourne markets and struggled to get great meat, it was very hit and miss. It was even harder to find someone that actually had Brisket, cut the way the Americans butcher it. I needed full packers or Point End Brisket with the Flat and Pojnt still attached. The Sher Briskets have been perfect, so they have remained my go to Brisket supplier.

Back in May 2013 I started to host Group buys for www.aussiepitmasters.com.au . When available, we have been able to share PE Brisket, Tenderloin, Striploin, Deckle, Bolar Blade, Rump Cap, Inside Skirt Steak, Beef Cheeks, Tails and a few other cuts. What started as Group Buys for the forum expanded to work colleagues and friends. Everyone that has eaten Sher Wagyu has been amazed with the quality of the beef. I even smoked Sher Wagyu Briskets for my factory staff at the            Xmas Party. My 2 favourite Sher Wagyu cuts are the full Point End Briskets (very close to the American Full Packer) and Inside Skirt Steak.

Knowing where your meat comes from (Ballan, Vic), when it was processed and even knowing the owners, is amazing. I was very lucky to find them and always feel extremely confident BBQ’ing with their products; it’s definitely the best beef I’ve used. After buying from Sher  Wagyu over the past 14 months, I feel very honoured that they have agreed to sponsor me.

Get yourself to one of the Butchers below and try some of the cuts I have mentioned, you won’t be disappointed. From time to time I still do Group Buys, so if you are interested and can pick up from either Point Cook or Mount Waverley, drop me a line on the email link at the bottom of the page.
