Default Brisket for $1.49

Was in my local HEB in Tomball, TX yesterday as always I check the brisket stack. The usual Select packers for $2.46. One of the employees asked if I needed a brisket today. That is when he informed me of new price coming Wednesday of $1.49. Usually this results in short supply and they have to substitute choice or prime for same price. will buy select for burgers and sausage if all else fails.

already in my head I am doing calculations to see if it is cheaper to drive to Texas, buy brisket for $1.49 and drive back...to St Louis.

appreciate the post. those heb guys know who buys their meat if you are in there a lot. its funny how they will substitute when they run out of select but refuse to price match walmart's briskets. but at $1.49 it is hard to complain.

Next thing will be you Texas boys telling us that your stores are paying you to take briskets off your hands.

Y'all are killing us.

I switched over a couple of years ago to just using prime. For the effort, I find the final product to be more juicy, etc. Picked up a 15 pounder yesterday from my HEB for about $3.60 /lb.

That's fantastic news!! I have to pick up 2 to smoke for a wedding shower and that will really save me some bucks. If they were to be choice or prime super good eatings! Thanks for posting!!

Ugh, considering I'm seeing whole packers for upwards of $7/lb, that kinda makes me a bit sick.

May your brisket be tough and dry!

*I'm kidding. Awesome price. Congrats.

i agree with this. i still have a couple primes in the freezer from last year when i found them at a decent price. lately they have been over $4.50/LB. i am hoping they drop the price of prime this week too.

Costco in Fort Worth has had primes for $2.97 lb. when I go to HEB and get a select for $1.97 it's worth paying the extra buck per lb. HEB normally has prime for $4.50 in my area.
