price of brisket ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

stopped by a local grocery chain store and asked about briskets, he went and got a flat (that's all they carry ) $ 6.50 a pound I almost fell over.


Is that the normal price ? ,give or take 


it wasn't that big of piece of meat for $50 and you loose a 1/4 in cooking 


Whats your thoughts and prices in area ?

Flats will always be higher priced and point cuts cheaper. If you buy the whole brisket that will be your best value. Prices may vary depending where you live and what store you go to. I have found that Super Walmart, Costco, and Sam's to have the best prices here in Minnesota. I can still get a whole brisket cryo'd for under 3 bucks a pound. Call around your area. Perhapst a local butcher shop could get you a better deal as well. Reinhard

Went to HEB in New Braunfels this morning and just checked to see the price of brisket. It was a $1.77 a lb. So, I bought one for the freezer.

here in Cali. going rate for a full packer is , $3.59lb, so it will run me about $40 clams to get a good one, that why I got a FoodSaver..Vittles for a year or so.

Anyone ever done one of these beauties? their meat looks amazing but the prices will give you a heart attack.

Went to my local Costco, they only had flats, so I called a local butcher he told me he could get me a 12-13 lb packer in a day or two, went to pick it up last night, $4.99/lb, higher than I wanted but I won't care when it's time to eat tonight
