Anyone find any "can't pass up" deals on meat for the weekend? Got my new offset all seasoned and ready to go for its first cook. I really don't want to spend big $ on a packer brisket since this is my first run on this smoker (although I may do it anyway). Any good deals out there on brisket, pork butt, ribs? (I'm in Michigan)

Don't know about Michigan sadly.

Our local store is running bone in ribeyes for $5.98 a pound and bone in pork sirloin chops for $1 a pound. I'll be stocking up on both.

Don't know if that's good or not up there. Sam's usually has choice briskets here in Oklahoma for $2.98- 3.58/lb.

Local Giant grocery stores here in MD/DC have whole beef brisket for 1.99 lb,  I dug through the bin and pulled out a 7lb that was quite even throughout, went back yesterday to grab another but there was nothing less than 17 pounders at my local store.  saw a 20 pounder that looked real nice but thought no because  it'd take too long to smoke. so I passed.

I soooo want to do a 20#er. Just to say I did one. Lol. Plus it's a good excuse to have a party..

I'm not sure it was a Labor Day deal, but the local Costco has full Prime briskets for $2.89/lb - and trimmed flats (choice) for $4.59...I definitely consider the whole brisket a steal (comparatively).

Prime for $2.89. ?:th_crybaby2:. I'd kill for those prices.
