I was in our Sams Club yesterday in Evansville IN and found they had PRIME grade excel brisket for $2.58/lb. That's only .20 more per pound than what they sell choice for. Don't know if this is in the right thread or not, but wanted to pass this on to any hoosiers or Western KY folks on the forum..

I only bought 3. I wonder how long they'd keep in the freezer?

I have cooked plenty briskets that were in the freezer close to a year. Judges thought they were good. :biggrin1:

I found one a while ago that was almost two years old and cooked it for practice. I couldn't tell any difference because of the age. I don't recommend keeping them that long, however :)

Agree with Rich, we have been freezing our briskets this year also. I would had loaded the freezer for that price!

Thanks for all the replies. He said yesterday he had gotten in 5 cases, so I may go back in the morning for a few more.

My local Sam's has these all the time now. The first time I saw this (about 2 years ago now), I bought as many as my wife would let me (she thinks things like paying bill are important...hmmmpf). I would have drained our bank account. Luckily, they have never left. I have frozen them before, and they are just as good as fresh to me.

I bought some at the Des Moines Ia Sams club when we cooked there last month. I took every good looking one they had.

Our Sams generally always has prime and every so often you can find choice CAB. They said they don't order CAB, they just appear in the case of briskets.

Brisket as Sam's? I'm having a tough enough time getting the cryo 2-pack of butts here in eastern PA. Maybe I need to take a trip to some other stores.

I've heard you can have them order in a case for you if they don't carry them regularly.

Great find. Prime is 6 bucks a pound here. Only thin choice briskets where I live at SAMs.

After reading this thread earlier, I had to take a trip.... all my club had was Excel Choice. I inquired, and was told they never know what they get in until it arrives, but I could talk with the manager and see if he could order one. Well, long story short, he will try, but no promise. Just depends on if the distribution center has any or not. He said he will place the order for a case in the morning and should know something later in the day, and he will call me.

And the choice is $4.28 per pound.... maybe I should have asked if he knew what the price was for the prime...
