Thanks for your reply, schlotz. I've been to them before, and they're good at what they do .. but I recall them being on the higher end of the spectrum. Not that I'm not willing to pay accordingly for a good cut of meat - I'd just like to see if anyone else in my area has experience with a store that has a reputation for good cuts at reasonable prices.

I see you're in fairview, I saw a place advertising on cane creek road for local source of meat, I can't remember the name or what they had. I remember that it had a place to eat there also.

Do you have a Costco? I have Sams but I'm all but done shopping them. I hate their poultry and even their ribs are more expensive than my grocery store. The only thing I would consider now is a beef loin.

We've got Sams Club - which I used to shop, and could get fairly decent brisket packers .. but we let the membership lapse.

I don't know what's happened to Sams. Early on it seemed worth it to pay for that membership but I don't think we are going to re-up. Their chicken is rubbery, they don't have a good spread of beef except I do like the cowboy ribeye haha. The other day, I couldn't believe that their ribs (2 in a pack) cost more per pound than Walmart. You would think it would be even cheaper since buying bulk.

I have a Kroger and for the first time ordered a rib roast from the butcher there. I'm going to see what else I can get from them b/c it's slim pickings for me too. Often I've found out that grocery stores have butchers and I didn't realize that they take orders and all that.

In fact, the butcher game me their cell number so I can call direct in the future. I'm seriously thinking of having them grind up a roast for burgers. I just need to find out which roast is best to use. I should buy a brisket since I can't smoke one for crap hahah

lol .. well, I just got back from visiting my Mom .. hometown of Lake Jackson TX. The HEB (regional TX grocer) had an unbelievable selection of beef .. especially brisket. I guess I'm going through withdrawal .. seeing all that smoker bait ;)

i've had some good luck at walmart lately on steaks. it's actually part of their long term grocery business strategy to improve their steak offering as a loss leader to drive folks into the store

I live in hendersonville and the only reasonably prices brisket I've found has been sams. Most of the grocery stores are high and only carry small briskets, we have m&m meatlocker but their prices went up when it was sold years ago and it's not worth the hassle of making a special trip anymore
