What do you pay for brisket in your neck of the woods? Most of the time here in Central Iowa I have seen it priced at $2.99 to $3.99 per lb. I actually bought one Friday night at the Super Wal-Mart in Ames for $1.65 per lb. I am not real big on buying meat at Wal-Mart but I thought this was a pretty good price. Worth giving it a try anyway.
