Can't remember when I last bought a brisket.

My neighbor has been plowing my driveway this winter.

Won't take money.

Told him I'd make him some stuff.

First up is a corned beef brisket.

Holy cow!

picked up an 8 pound choice flat.

$7.75 a pound at the commissary!

Sticker shock!
 
If anyone remembers video of the MetroDome in MSP collapsing, I was shoveling that by hand. A woman drove by in a lifted 4x4 and asked if I needed help. Against every male fiber in my body I said yes. Her husband showed up two minutes later with a plow and cleaned me out. He came back a few times until it stopped snowing. In spring I grilled them some rib eyes and grabbed a case of beer. Still couldn’t show how much I appreciated that.
I completely understand where you are coming from.

I am a packer's fan and I remember that like it was yesterday
 
Good good is one heck of a barter tool for sure!! Sticker shock is true I’m general right now on meats.
 
Awesome deal and very thoughtful on your part! Yes, prices are up there. Oddly enough I find that my commissary beef prices are worse than Costco, but the commissary pork prices are better.

Deciding whether to go with the America's Test Kitchen brine, or the Morton recipe using tenderquick in a dry rub...
