What the heck happened to the price of brisket this year?? Last year I was getting briskets at Costco for $3 - $4 /lb. I just bought one last night from Costco, and paid $5.99 /lb. I bout put it back down, but really want a brisket this weekend. I usually don't even look at the price when I want it, but last night it was the only thing I was buying, and just looked at it out of habit. Has anyone else seen these ridiculous prices?
