    Picked up both at Gordon Food Service in Utica today. Briskets are full packers and butts are two packs. Then I gassed up at sams club for $1.77/gallon. GREAT DAY!

    What is Gordon Food Service?  I've never been to a store. 
     
  5. I always viewed them as a warehouse for food related things and a restaurant supply place.  In Michigan if you order soup or a desert I always figured it came from Gordon's.  We get their christmas cookes every year already cutout into Christmas shapes.

    Do you need a membership like Restaurant Depot, or can you just walk in?

    Ah there is a distribution center within driving distance from me, but I assume they dont sell to the public there?
     
  8. I have only been to one of their retail stores.  No membership required for them.

    Just got back from Costco. Still $6.99 / lb for brisket. WTF??
     
  10. I went with a friend to Costco two weeks ago and a brisket was $2.99. I don't have a membership, but that is the price range I am looking for.

    Mummel, Was that price for Prime grade? My local costco carries prime grade and the price is pretty reasonable for that.
