Brisket PRices

post #1 of 25

What is the average price yall find on brisket?? are the prices different between packers per pound, and fresh briskets per pound? Just wondering what i should look for when buying my first one soon. THanks

I've seen them as low as $1.19 to $1.99 for packers. Usually in the $1.48 area. If it is $3+ it is a trimmed brisket, I don't care for those.

Get a packer from 8-10#. I like these better than the 12#ers anymore, I used to only by 12# briskets.

Good luck

WOW! definiitely need to look for packers. I wento to the local butcher, he said it would run me about $3.80 per pound. Im assuming it was trimmed and clean. Thanks for the heads up

Hey Charles don't get your hopes up on that price. I bought one 2 weeks ago for 3.49 a lb. and that was for the packer. I guess it just matters where you live. It took me a while to even find a store that knew what a brisket was. Don't even think about going to a supermarket up here and ask for a Boston Butt.

Couldn't find any packer here today they were all flats and $3.99 a pound at WalMart no less! Yikes! The packers are normally around $2.79 here.

$3.99/Lb for flats here at Shaws...no butchers here...just "meat cutters" don't know the difference between a whole packer and a whole flat...
Sam's club in Manchester has had the best selection for anything you wanted, I have seen in my travels..just sorry I didn't have a cooler with me the time we were there...

I paid a little less than 1.40 per pound last Sunday. Like was just said, holiday coming up so the price will be higher too. It seems like not too long ago I could find them about anywhere in Oklahoma for .99 per pound but not anymore.

We don't have a Shaws here they went under. WalMart, Stop and Shop and ShopRite. I think the closest SamClubs is either Harford of Warwic, RI for me. BJ's is closer but I haven't had much luck with their meats. The last butts I bought there were all fat iside almost no meat and stringy!

I have heard alot about Machester being a good place to shop. It's about an hour from here - I'll have to check it out some weekend.

here they are $1.37/lb at wally world; $1.48/lb at my local grocery stoer; and $1.58/lb at a meat packer. that is for what we call a packer. the meat packer told me he couldn't get packers. i was thinking, "wtf?". then he said he has them in the cryovac package like they come in (pretrimmed). i told him that is what i wanted. he said a true packer has a bone in it. dutch? any other butchers/ex-butchers out there know what he means? i found out friday where i can get a clod for $1.79/lb.

Major Disappointment

I have yet to find a packer around these parts. The only place I can find any brisket at all is BJ's Wholesale Club, and they are flats @ $3.99 lb! eek.gif I stopped there yesterday and picked through what they had... found one with somewhat of a point on it, weighing in at almost 8 pounds. It came home with me...

I think I paid 2.19 at Dillons on sale. My wife stuck it in the freezer and said it was hers. She wants to do it in the oven. Ill only grumble a little cause I dont complain much when someone cooks for ME. Next time Ill buy two.
