Had to google beef clods.. sounds like they are great for Central Texas style Barbecue. Twenty eight pounds is a LOT of meat! Keep us posted if you find a smaller cut and prepare it, please.No longer mad at Texans! Karen went to a Western Beef place to get ground beef and found they have beef shoulder clods. As she describes them, they sound like brisket on steroids. I doubt I will ever get one as the least expensive (28 + lbs) was $140.00.
