I have used brisket for years now to do both.

I dont think so the one I am talking about is in the blade of the roast.
The coppa is another muscle I think.

I just got database error. Maybe it's not just on my end?

What happens when you make 22 quarts of homemade chill?
You drink to much out of boredom waiting for it to cook.
This morning I got up and ground two of the biggest briskets with the biggest grinding plate I have.
22 MM or about 7/8 inch.

Then simmering all day long and rendered off most of the fat.
I did not measuer I spiced to taste.
What I can say is I used about 1 1/2 pounds of chili powder plus the rest of the homemade chili powder I had.
Plus many other things like about 4 cups of masa harina, salt, Mexican oregano, paprika, red pepper, onions, onion powder, garlic powder, 10 fermented habanero peppers, comino AKA cumin, and so on.
No tomato products.
The red fat is being reserved for the topping of the jars and the rest froze for cooking.
Right now it is on low and I am going to read and take a nap, I need to go to the store to get another case of quart jars.
I cannot do this in my state of inebriation right now.
This will be about three canner loads to deal with tonight.
Was it as cheap as the canned store stuff about the same price but it is homemade.
When it is finished I will have 21 quarts of chili plus some for supper tonight with Frito's corn chips.

Not that hot trust me it isn't.
It is only about 1/4 pepper per pint to be exact 0.238 I did the calculations before I added them.
I cant stand chili that is too hot.
Heat can always be added later.

For me, the order would be different. Drink way too much and then decide to make 22 quarts of chili

EDIT: I should explain that being that I have never canned anything - it would take a lonnng time to eat 22 quarts of chili.

Tonight PB&J and an ice cream sandwich. And of course, a Coke!

Asparagus has been on sale around here- last week at $1.27 per pound, this wek at $1.99, and so have been eating a lot of it right now. The first ones purchased were fat spears, these last the very slender ones.

Had about 1/2 pound before snapping the short butts off the stalks and made boiled eggs with the asparagus that was steamed, served with butter. Less than $2.00 for the meal as eggs are at $0.68 a dozen right now. Yummy meal and satisfying.
