I have smoked a brisket once and I went to walmart. They had 9 to choose from and it was delicious

If you are a KCBS member you can get a free pass. No resale certificate required.

I live in Northern California and the brisket selection is pretty slim.  I just returned from a trip to TX and while there I perused the meat section of the local grocery store and was amazed at the selection of briskets.  They had packers, flats and something called the grocers cut (or something like that).  Bottom line ... a huge selection compared to my local options.

Where in Nor Cal? I live in Los Gatos and have found that the Lunardi's chain here in the bar area has a really good meat department. At least the one here in Los Gatos does. The butchers down there will cut and trim a brisket or butt any way I want it. Or anything else I want for that matter. You might say they aim to please.  

Here is their website link. Check to see if they have a store near you and give them a try if they do.

I am in Folsom, just outside of Sacramento.  I get down to the bay area fairly often, I may need to bring a cooler with me next time and pay a visit to Lunardis.

For those of you in the San Jose, Ca area - the Smart&Final on Hillsdale Ave has several briskets in their meat aisle right now; they're 10-15 lbs and are priced at $1.79 per lb...

My local market does not carry any packer brisket's (they did at 1 time, a long, long time ago), cause they are 2 expensive to the consumer. So I get the packers at Wally World, they must have the market on them.

I usually go to Walmart but with the tidbit by Bayou above I may begin to look elsewhere.  Local Harris Teeter usually only sells small ones (4-5 lbs).

It does seem almost impossible to find brisket in your local grocer. I get mine usually from specialty meat markets. Brisket is something you just don't find at your grocery store due to the size portions of it.
