    Every once in a while I like to stop at GFS (Gordon's Food Service). They are a restaurant supply store that also sells to the public. Don,t really know why I stopped, but I'm glad I did. In their fresh meat cooler they had double packs of Pork Butts for $1.39/lb, and Brisket Packers for $1.85. Better yet, they had some smaller Briskets. I got a 6.5 pounder --and 30 pounds of butt. This is restaurant quality.

    I know GFS has lots of stores, so you might want to google them and see if there is one near you :)

    Good deal on the brisket but not one within 200 miles of me

    I can buy them at the Walmart 1 mile from my house for $1.99, but they only have huge ones. I checked every day for a week and the smallest I saw was 13.5 pounds. It will be interesting to see how reliable a supply for smaller briskest, or Briskets of any size, GFS turns out to be. They,re a staggeringly 2 miles away, so ill be able to keep my eye on them. Just never thought of them as a source before.
