As I stated above, live in the heart if the San Francisco Bay Area, and over the past two years, I have had ready access to packer briskets in the 12-15 pound range, for under $3 a pound. I drive 10 minutes, park and grab what I want. No problem. It wouldn't pay to go out of state for $2 a pound brisket
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
