looking for brisket
 
any suggestions where I can find the point end of the brisket or a whole packer heard Wal-Mart carries them are they good quality or should I find a butcher

In CA it's hard to find one too. A butcher you will pay more. I use Costco, SAMs club, and restaurant depot.

yeah I have looked at sams club but only find the flat here don't have a restaurant depot maybe at sams I need to ask the butcher there

Sounds like California. Even at Costco they trim too much off.

Offthehook 01-23-2013 09:44 PM

Correct me if I am wrong but I have never seen a full packer at anywhere besides restaurant depot.

SAMs Club carries them here.Always.Decent if you pick through them and get a floppy one.

Sams Club here carries them from time to time...sometimes just Flats though !!

Got one at Costco last week and they trimmed the top of the point of them.

Sam's, Walmart and Costco are hit or miss depending on the store.

Restaurant depot is only 20 miles or so away...

Either that or ask a local butcher.

In my experience from looking and then lurking on here, people in the Midwest have the best luck finding packers. Indiana must be a little too far east or something. :twitch:

Our SAMS only carries Packers. They are 2.58 per pound. Our Krogers also carry Packers and Flats. The packers are 2.49/pound. I have no idea on the flats. Both SAMS & Krogers will have choice packers.

It is regional. I will trade you straight up pound for pound brisket for tri-tip.
