Up here in Washington I've been paying $1.68 a pound at Walmart. I bought a 6 pack case of them a couple of weeks ago for $1.60 a pound from my favorite BBQ place. I've been helping them with their computers and website and they offered to let me purchase a case of briskets when they placed their next order. These briskets seem to be way better then the ones I've been getting from Walmart. I now only have 5 left and will probably be down to 4 after this weekend. I should be done converting my old refer into a smoker by then. I'll post some photos when I get it done. I'm just waiting on some steel flashing to finish off the interior. Sorry, I got off track a bit.
