Looked today. The Briskets were between 4.5 and the largest 6.5 lbs.......where should I go for that 9 lb brisket?
My Sam's went nearly all flats a few years ago. For home use a big flat will work fine. Since I'm doing more pastrami and such the flat is easier to prep.
I get full packers at WalMart SuperCenter or GFS. If necessary I order from GFS by the case.
Depending on what's in your area check out Restaurant Depot, BJ's, Costco, etc.
I have always been able to get some large packers at our Sam's. Now if you are sure that they dont have the big packers maybe ask before you leave. Then I would go to either Restaurant depot or even Walmart has some packer briskets.
