Define "a lot"
Around here select or even choice brisket is as cheap or cheaper than most other cuts.

I would just pick up a case of flats at Sam's. Not much waste flats and you should have extras that you can cook later or cook and freeze for later use. I think it runs just over $3 a pound around here
