Got a couple of Prime packers today...
Stopped at Costco and headed my own advice from last year (this thread - http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/140471/pastrami-from-scratch-on-the-smokin-it-3) ...get bigger briskets.
Got 2 14 pounders:
$3.89/ pound for Prime:
The other choice was choice for $6.39/ pound??!!
What gives??!! So for $10 more I get twice as much and prime to boot...
Not sure of the prices too recently, but at least in May 2015, the primes were at least less then $3/ pound over the choices...in St. Louis park MN.
My more recent thread is here:
Need to make more!
