Jack Daniels Beef Brisket

I purchased a pack of Jack Daniels Beef Brisket at Target when it was on sale.  I had seen this particular product time and time again but had yet to purchase.  On the look out for something new, I decided to grab a pack and have it for lunch one day.

I heated the pack up per the directions – piercing the bag and placing into the microwave.  When done I weighed out my serving – 151 grams.  I paired it up with a baked potato and some canned carrots.  The carrots and potato were delicious but the brisket was mediocre.  It was alright but not something I was a huge fan of.  It was passable as a meal, but not enjoyable and I like to enjoy my food.  The brisket was fatty so I spent a majority of the time cutting the fat off the meat and feeding it to my dogs. They enjoyed it.

I’ve tried a few of the Jack Daniels line items and while I do enjoy the pulled chicken, it is very sweet.  The glaze used on the beef brisket is also sweet, but not sickeningly so.  A 151 gram serving was 5 points plus.  Worth it?  Eh, I don’t know if I’d say it was but it was a meal…

Have you tried any of the Jack Daniels heat and eat meals?


  1. I've tried the Jack Daniels baby back ribs and I really like them. One thing on my shopping list I haven't tried yet is Trader Joe's smokehouse pulled beef brisket and chicken breast. They sound similar to the Jack Daniels. Maybe you could do a taste comparison!

    1. I've actually tried the Trader Joe's Pulled Chicken. I've got the photos to post a mini review -- I just haven't gotten around to it. It's alright, I wasn't in love with it. I think it was because I found a piece of like "grissel" (that hard chunky fat stuff) in it and was turned off lol.

    2. That would turn me off of it too!

    3. I'm such a finicky eater. I know some people are like "Whatever" but me? I completely lose my appetite lol. But I'm used to like homemade pulled pork and chicken ... so I do go into these things biased, just a tad

  2. So I did a google search for reviews on the JD Beef Brisket and stumbled upon your page. I just had to comment..whatta transformation!!! You're beautiful and congrats on your weight loss!

  3. This sounds like a nice recipe to try, thanks for posting.
