When you are buying a flat like that you are paying for the time it took someone to trim it up all nice and neat. Not to mention it is choice grade and looks like a nice hunk of cow.

That being said, I can get choice flats like that down here for around $4.00/lb. Packers are almost half of that at $2.18/lb. Brisket is still a decent deal down here, but the cost of ground beef and cuts like ribeye, chuck roast etc are nutz. $4.79/lb for a ungraded chuckie.
Rescued 22.5" OTS. SJS Mini-WSM. HEB briqs (rebranded Royal Oak). Pecan/Hickory/Cherry/Apple/Peach woods.
