Great Looking brisket
You must have one HAPPY Family if you cook like this!
$12.95 /pound was the price of the prime steaks at Costco. I bought my prime packer briskets at a high-falutin' local butcher for $4.99 /pound. Still, it came to $110. for two briskets, and I'm used to paying about $1.99/pound for choice.
Good thing there's leftovers in the freezer. I hid them in the fridge as soon as I sliced them, or it would ALL be gone.
Just read through all the replies, and I'm blushing. Y'all say such nice stuff to a girl. Thanks...and it was delicious, too. Ribs are on the agenda next, for Friday maybe, and a new camera battery, too, so I can post pictures. I've been reading here every morning for inspiration. Such good cooks!
Great looking briskets Cinderella and nice camera work too. I did a couple of packers of my own this past weekend along with some yardbirds and a boneless turkey roast.
Sure wish I could find prime briskets for $4.99 a pound. I got my choice briskets for $2.38 a pound that I found out Wal-mart of all places.
Those briskets are inspirational! Magical!
Ya know, State College IS in the middle of the state. I can see it now....
Beautiful fall Saturday, all the smokingmeatsforum PA members gathered outside Beaver Stadium putting on a tailgate the likes having never been seen before. Penn State Ohio State on the field....and not a person in the stands, but all gathered round the SMF tailgate, smoke from dozens of smokers drifting into and covering the stadium....
Okay, got to quit that or I might not come back to reality.
You had no idea how inspirational your post would be did you?
