$441.95 would get me about 196.42lbs of IBP Choice at the local corner store. Hopefully it pays off for you.

What is going to hurt is when a team using an UDS and a 20.00 brisket take home a GC and your gold plated brisket doesn't place. :heh:

Good luck :thumb:

My wholesaler in Dallas used SRF but has since discontinued them and went with a company out of Iowa. Their stated reason was that the quality as well as the actual mix of the cow was down to 25% waygu and they could not continue to support the elevated prices and poor quality. Bought 2 of the Iowa ones the other day and paid 5.59 per pound. This is just for some experimenting as I usually cook Sam's CAB choice flats and do quite well with them. Just some food for thought.

I'm glad I got 3 90# cases of Prime sitting in my freezer. At the time they were $1.50/lb hope my $1.50 brisket doesn't beat all you fancy pants......

I typically get Wagyu Briskets from a local butcher for $4 per/lb and SRF for roughly $5 per/lb - only because I live one state away and shipping is very reasonable ($39 for (3) 14 lb'ers. I'm assuming by the discount, you used the comp code with your SRF order. It's worth 15% off.. :thumb:

Bought excel prime for $2.29 a pound a month and a half ago. Tried to order them again and was told they didn't know when they could get them in. I found national prime but they cost me $3.19/lb.

I would be ecstatic to get prime brisket for 3.19 @ lb.
BJ's, Sam's Club etc in Delaware are in the 3.49@lb range for choice.

You can get Strube @ BigPoppaSmokers.com with some killer shipping prices, and nice discounts on cases... if you are going for TX brisket.

I'm glad I got 3 90# cases of Prime sitting in my freezer. At the time they were $1.50/lb hope my $1.50 brisket doesn't beat all you fancy pants......
I sure am hoping all those 90# cases has like 7-8 briskets in them lol.... I quit buying from Scavuzzo's for that reason. Seems like everytime I got over 80# case, it ended up have 7 briskets in it. :shock: Our Sam's has been getting Prime in, and our meat guy will let me dig through the cases and build one. $1.98/lb when he has it in (case price). $2.29 in the case for a single. The normal Angus choice is $2.19/lb in the case , so hard to beat for the price. When he has it. RD also occasionally gets some in, but they also have choice angus all the time, so I can always find decent ones there too.

I'm still pretty new at competing, but I dont think I'm going to dabble in these "designer briskets" I may not ever get a brisket walk, but something about it goes against my grain.

Resturant Depo in KCMO has choice brisket at $1.99/lb and superior angus beef brisket for $2.29/lb. I don't know what superior means, but the superior briskets looked good and they had lots to choose from.

This past weekend I used my last SRF brisket (15.5#'s) and it came out perfect. Great pull, flopped on the finger perfectly, flavorful, and we were very happy with it. It came in 23rd out of 37. $100 briskets are out for us unless we're getting them free with a sponsorship.

I'd say that is a smart move!!!! :thumb:

I just can't see spending that money on those briskets... it seems to me if you know how to cook it good you can score... I see people winning with RD briskets all the time./

We got 4 top 5's in 8 contests in brisket last season using nothing but choice from RD. Until we stop getting calls I see no reason to spend the money on the 'good stuff'.

I got an 80# case from there 2 weeks ago. The case had 5 good size choice briskets, pretty decent marbling. Price came in at @2.09/Lb.

Thanks. I had never heard of them but will be giving them a call tomorrow to get some prices.
