"Whosoever holds this hammer, if they be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor!"


Ok, so it might not give you the ability to shoot lightning, but look at that thing!


There just aren't many places to find some of the unusual cuts of beef that you can find at Hi Brau. Grocery store? Na. Local butcher shop? Probably not. Hi Brau? Absolutely. That's one of the benefits of partaking in the Hi Brau experience. Different breeds, unusual cuts, unique finishes.


The Thor's Hammer (also called Volcano Cut Shank) comes from the top part of the leg of the cow. While this is one of the toughest cuts on the animal, it's full of flavor due to the high collagen content. This is not a good cut for the beginner, but for those with a little bit of experience, an extended time in the smoker or a long, slow braise yields a flavorful eating experience that can please a crowd and impress mere mortal bystanders.


Our "Thor's Hammer" Beef Shanks are individually packaged and weigh between 4.0 - 6.0 lbs. They are dry aged for two weeks and flash frozen to preserve freshness.


Important Note: While the big bone sticking out looks cool, it's also notorious for puncturing packaging. Though they are safely wrapped, we can't vacuum seal them all of the way. As a result, these will likely have air in the packaging and some ice crystals. We don't expect this to impact quality.
