  1. Hey was curious on average price per lb folks pay...

    I was going to do  brisket today however I wasn't satisfied with my results.

    I did order one for next week though...

    I looked at few places, some were completely trimmed and at 6.50per lb

    Lowest I found was 4.25 from a butcher I trust.

    Thing is if was to buy half a steer everything cut ænd wrapped is 2.00 per lb,

    WhATS AVERaG price per lb on a brisket is my question
     
  2. I got a prime packer from Costco for 3.59/lb and it seems nice and floppy, a great cut of meat.

    Last I bought was about a month ago.  $2.99 on sale.

    No idea how much higher they have gone in a month.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I try not to go higher than 3 bucks a pound , but I am cheap ,I mean, frugal.
     
  5. Paid 3.69 for a choice packer yesterday. It is a bit high but keep in mind fat cattle are bringing 1.20 a pound on the hoof.

    Beer wagon, if you can get it cut and wrapped for 2 bucks a pound buy 3 steers as that price is way below cost of production.
     
  6. Yea no kidding,  people around here charge way to much for it... its just nuts
     
  7. The worst part about it, the two dollar per pound price I could even hand select from the pasture...
     
  8. Beer wagon, I am in the animal agriculture world and that price is below what they could send it to the sale barn for. Pretty cool though if you can pick it out and send it to the butcher.

    $3.54 lb. for a choice Angus brisket from Restaurant Depot last week. That's a bit more than I like to pay for brisket, but I've never tried Angus, and it was nice & floppy.

    I just paid $3.38 for a prime packer at Sam's. Seems high but that's the going rate now I guess.

    I had to check this place out. I'm envious. Looks really great if you live in the NE (free next day delivery), but delivery charges are way too much for me in WA state.
     
  12. Yeah...

    Most of the briskets I find are select, would like choice but don't see them.  HEB had whole packers for $2/lb for many months but had recently increased to near $2.50.  Last weekend Albertsons ran a sale on packers for $1.77/lb limit 2.  I grabbed a couple of them and told everyone I knew about the sale.
     
  14. Needless to say, I'll be eating pulled pork this weekend.
