Default Choice Brisket 1.81/lb

Went to Wal Mart at lunch today, and cruised by the briskets. They had 6 whole packers( Excel Brand ), Choice, for 1.81/lb. I picked up two nice looking ones.

Not sure if all of the Wal Mart locations have them on sale, but that is a good deal for here. Sams is 2.38/lb here. This Wal Mart is in Madison AL. I might pick up another 2 tomorrow if they still have some.

That is a great deal! I've never seen choice at Walmart around here, but I might need to go take a look.

Similar deal here in Austin. Walmart had a huge selection of packers for $1.77/lb. All excel with about 70% labeled select, and 30% labeled choice. I spied one monster choice packer that was 18.7 lbs. I hope someone who knows what they are doing grabbed that one.

I wish I could find a decent packer @ a decent price. Nothing here but 3lb flats & 5lb packers in the 4 & 5 dollar per lb. range.

Nice ... At Wally world here in Phoenix ..2.59 lb select v.s. 2.59 costco for choice whole packers..Wally world 10 mins. away ..Costco 30.mins away.
Funny .. Bludawg said his last Briski was not bad from WW the last one I bought was the first from WW .. It was good ..Went back sat to get one or 2 and whoever buthered these was horrible out of 10 in the case I walked away,
the flat on some were maybe 1/2" thick ..It luck of the draw I know.

I picked up a 10 pounder last week at Walmart for $1.81 a pound. Seems that is their discounted price when the meat is within a week of going out of date. My girlfriend said that they have them all the time like that. I haven't cooked it yet but will be very soon.
