Default SAMs Club Meat Dept. Helpful

Went by SAMs today to pick up a brisket. I was looking for one about 15 lb to smoke for Thanksgiving at my parents Thursday evening.

They only had 5 or 6 packers out and they were all small so I rang the bell and a young man came out to help. I told him I was looking for something larger and he went in the back and opened 3 cases trying to find larger packers. He came out with 7 or 8 packers but he found only one large one and it was 16 lb. I checked it out and the flat was very stiff. I thanked him for his effort and said I was hoping he would have several to choose from as I liked to pick out one with a flexible flat (I know, I know......I felt bad to even mention this point since he was so helpful). The young man asks, "Would a prime brisket work better?". Me: Do you have one? I've bought them here before but haven't seen one since July. He says they don't have one but did a couple weeks back and could order more.

He gets his manager and they are ordering a case of prime brisket......even though I only want 2 of them. Ordered at lunch and they should be at the store ready to pickup early Wed. morning.

Can't beat that.
