American Wagyu beef brisket is prepared by trimming the brisket to an aerodynamic shape while preserving the marbling and flavors. The brisket is seasoned simply with salt and pepper and then smoked for 14 hours in a 1,000-gallon smoker using oak wood. The dish is served with Texas biscuits, pickles, pickled onions, and a variety of sides that reflect the restaurant's Hispanic heritage, such as beans made with brisket trimmings, street corn, fried plantains, and caramelized pineapple.
