    i was looking at a brisket and saw the usda stamp on the package but there was no choice or prime on it. nothing. is that like the worst grade of meat or is it equil to choice? help!
  2. It is select probably. It usually goes inspected, select, choice, then prime.

    It never hurts to get the best you can afford, but personally since I am on a budget, I get the lower grade. Never had anyone complain. Usually since their mouth was too full [​IMG]

    Yes it's a good cut of meat and the fact that it is marked is a good thing too.
