The brisket craving can be a cruel thing...
 
Have a urge to smoke a brisket tomorrow so I went to five different stores/markets and none of them had a single packer is stock. :doh:

I always have a couple in the deep freeze for these occasions ;)

That sucks! I hate it when that happens. Last time that happened to me, I picked up a 3 bone rib roast, cut the ribs off leaving a nice layer of meat on top and BBQ'd them. They turned out delicious. They hit the spot!

Time to hit some short ribs till you get the brisky.

Thats crazy that packers would be hard to find in the midwest. I guess I should stop complaining about not being able to get Prime Grade.

Theres always the humble chuck roast! Done right I think its as good as any brisket.

Here is a poor pic of the beef ribs. They were a little on the fatty side, but that just added flavor. It was easy to eat around it.

Checked there as that is usually were I get my brisket but they had no packers in stock which was a first for them when I have checked.

Why not do some beef short ribs if you can't find a packer? beef short ribs are so dericious

Homebrewed Q 01-05-2013 10:28 PM

I agree with the MidWest comment, I can't imagine there not being briskets up there anywhere. There are 5 different stores I could go to right now within 2 miles of me that would have several packers in stock. Sorry, I know that doesn't help, maybe let the management of those stores know your angst so that it can be rectified in the future!
