brisket well lets just say I've bought from snake river but am going to try whole packers from sams club.
Seems like you really need some price break on the raw product, at $3.99 a pound for spares, that would be tough to get your price right. The same goes for briskets, by all means go with the Sams' Club packers, if you cook your brisket right, the general public wouldn't know the difference between a Prime and a select anyway. Just my .02...
