Default CA Brethren - Choice Packers at Smart & Final

I think they usually have select. These are $1.99/lb. Looks like they range from 7-14 lbs. There ya go.

I just checked the advertised specials and brisket is not coming up. Probably not on sale at my local S&F?

Dunno. I was just in the one in Culver City to grab something, thought I'd have a look & saw 'em.

This gives me motivation to finish up my UDS.

I have been craving brisket for awhile and now is a good time to do it.

Thanks.

It is not on my advertised flyer either.

I called them up and they said they are 1.99/lb.

Yippee!

I found a load of choice packers in Hayward at S&F, not sure about price though.

I take that back, it was $30 for a 15lb packer, doing the math that is around $2 a pound

Yup, Smart & Final is a great place to buy packers. You can find the Choice in there with the Select at the same price of $1.99/lb. Thanks to r2egg2Q (the brisket God)for pointing this out to me.

The Lake Forest store in South OC has a bunch of choice with a few selects mixed in. And the $1.99 has been going on for a few weeks now.

That's where I got my last one. Heck, that's pretty much the only place I can find them around here. With tri-tip pushing 5, even 6 bucks a pound in many cases, brisket is becoming more and more sensible.

Never done it, but I don't see why not. If I'm not mistaken, you can also let it age in the cryo in the fridge for something like 30-40 days, but it's very important the cryo is intact and the fridge is cold (below 40) and doesn't get opened too much. I may go back & grab me another one of those farkers.

I just checked yer link - are you at Westfield Farmer's Market every Saturday?

Ya, usually. I'm doing ribs, tri tip, maybe brisket and Pibil pork tacos. Come on down. Still trying to get the ribs right. Since I have to cook on site and buy the meat the same day, it's hard to a slow cook on the ribs.
