$2.19 at the local Kroger here in Stone Mountain.
BTW-got my Brisket finished up this morning, and had a heck of a judge staff waiting on my. My best friend is Asian and he had an open house today. 70 Asians all in the kitchen and the only empty plate was the Brisket plate. My new favorite thing to cook, and by far my new favorite BBQ to eat.
I screwed up more than a few briskets before this thread, no longer!
