    When I stopped after work today to pick up a couple butts, they had whole briskets for 1.72.  Kicking myself for not grabbing one to put in the freezer for when I get back off a work trip.  I'm trying to remember but I think Wally World here had them for 2.89 or something a pound.

    Kroger's around here are consistant at 1.98 a pound for full packers.  I have seen trimmed flats for 4 bucks a pound.

    I got tired of putting it off, and bought the biggest one I could find in a hurry, at Wegman's.

    I paid $4.79 for a 4.5 pound flat.

    Giant also had them for $4.79.

    Weiss wanted $6.99.

    Never thought about Wally World.[​IMG]

    I pay $1.98/lb for a packer, and $4.79 for a flat, but I don't do many flats.

    If I gotta pay that kind of cash for a piece of meat I'll do a tri tip

    $1.98 at the Wally World is the best we have here unless I head over to Scott AFB where it's cheaper but no packers.

    $2.99 to $3.99 a pound.  But that's at the local grocery store.  I refuse to step foot in a Wal Mart and give a single dollar to a company who does more for the GDP of China than it does the US.  WAKE UP PEOPLE  Quit shopping for what's best for you and do what's right for the country
