Last time I was at Kenrick's I saw tri-tips. I should have got one. I've been wanting to try one also.

I always have good luck with the Sams in Maplewood having whole briskets. Always have a few to choose from 12-15lbs. I definetly want to check out Herrells.

I just got back from Sam's Chesterfield. They had one packer, and it looked good to me. 13lb, $2.48/lb, thick flat. I asked the guy if they had anymore, and he said no, but they get in a truck every day and might get in more tomorrow. He said if you call, they'll put one aside for you.

Try Coinko's in Granite City (pronounced Chunk-os). The best briskets I've ever made came from there. I ordered two flats, trimmed zero fat and wow we're they good.
I'll be coming back up in March and am picking up 4 to bring home to Oklahoma for competitions.

I went to Kenricks today and was told that briskets aren't graded select, choice or prime because they have so much natural marbling...

So, I didn't buy anything and went to the Kirkwood Sam's Club. One of their butchers was very helpful. They have packers in stock and he took my info so they could call me when they get some large packers in.

I usually find whole packers from Wal Mart. The only place down here that carries them. Costco in So. County has briskets IIRC.
