Where would I start looking for a large cut of corned beef? i.e. something larger than the small packs at the grocery store.

IF you update your profile to show your general location we can help you out more. The local to my area (PNW) restaurant supply store Cash and Carry has whole corned beef packers. My only other option is from a local butcher that brines his own. I dont buy them as I brine my own corn beef using Pops Brine
Try Krogers or Fred Meyers if you have one close by. I Got a couple of "abnormally large" Corn Beef cuts last year in the fall (Oct / Nov time). I was surprised at how big, they were. They were also labelled as extra lean, which they were. Made some great Dude-strami!
If you have a C&C get on their email list for the hot sheet specials. I buy about 99% of my meat there cut and repack for the freezer. I like paying $3-$4 a pound for steak rather than $8-$12!
I was VERY unhappy with the CB's I got from Costco last year. The Kroger one's were far far better. But I'm sure they vary from year to year and region to region.
