Yep, I scarfed up a two pack of the Butts. My Kroger also had Chuck for $3.99/lb. I didn't see the brisket though. Why is it that these great deals occur when my freezer is pretty full with meat that I didn't get on sale earlier. :emoji_tired_face:

Brisket is $2.49 lb here this week. I got no room in the freezer, my wife doesn't eat beef cuts, and a packer already in the freezer I'm going to grind for burgers when the time comes. I might not ever smoke a brisket again with all this corona lockdown and no company. I like beef short ribs more anyway, brisket on a stick. RAY

We dont dont smoke whole brisket often but my plan is to grind. Even the high fat ground beef around here is over $4 lb. And I'll take ground brisket iver just about any other cut ground any day!

Ha! I wish! My butcher's prices are bit diferent. Last time I looked it was $9.98 a lb.

Ouch! I have a thing about never paying more than five bucks a pound for meat except the occasional lamb roast, and then it's $5,99lb. I guess I've always been kind of spoiled compared to some places, but I shop hard and make it count. RAY

Man this is the 2nd time your Kroger has awesome deals that ours don’t. I think last time it was $0.99 spares, that never hit ours either.
Man thats crazy! We are not that far apart. Would think the deals would be about the same.

Hey Sowsage, I'm sure it has been posted around here before, but do you prefer ground brisket over Chuck for burgers and other ground beef cooks? I can get a whole packer for half the cost per pound from chuck.

Thanks

I have ground my own Chuck before also...still way better than store baught ground beef because its fresh and I can choose what size plate I grind through. But brisket for me has much more "beefy" flavor to it. I usually just trim the really big hunks of fat and whatever else you normally would. Run it through a 1/4" plate and your good to go. Like many others here once I started grinding brisket I have not gone back!

Just for fun here is a link to a crazy burger I did with some coarse cround brisket.
