Good Beef Reading (stolen from another list)

USDA has an IMPS chart for beef that seems to say it is either 119 or
120 that you want. 118 still has some rib bones in it, after boning and
squaring up it becomes 119. When you remove the deckle, it becomes 120,
which is probably the packer's cut, at least that's the one I've always
thought of as the real brisket. 120 is subsequently cut into 120A, flat
cut, and 120B, point cut.
The chart is at:
Charts for other meats are at:
