In CA it's hard to find one too. A butcher you will pay more. I use Costco, SAMs club, and restaurant depot.

Sounds like California. Even at Costco they trim too much off.

Sam's, Walmart and Costco are hit or miss depending on the store.

Restaurant depot is only 20 miles or so away...

Either that or ask a local butcher.

In my experience from looking and then lurking on here, people in the Midwest have the best luck finding packers. Indiana must be a little too far east or something.

Our SAMS only carries Packers. They are 2.58 per pound. Our Krogers also carry Packers and Flats. The packers are 2.49/pound. I have no idea on the flats. Both SAMS & Krogers will have choice packers.

It is regional. I will trade you straight up pound for pound brisket for tri-tip.
