Default Seriously?????

My local Safeway, who haven't had a brisket in the five years I've been here, had these last Sunday. At that price they probably still have them...

I guess you didn't notice that the Ranchers reserved that flat just for you?

That's what they go for in Safeway around here. RD has better prices, though.

Not sure what you are complaining about. You save a whopping $0.30 a pound with your card.

Go in there on May 31 and make them an offer to take that "old" meat off their hands. For you it will be nicely "wet aged". When we lived in towns that had Safeway stores they were always way over priced. I guess they were targeting the Yuppies or some such of upity group of people. Never understood how they stayed in business....

I never expect to see any brisket in there so I always go to the meat market in a neighboring town for mine. Plus I rarely buy a flat. Guess that's why it seemed so high to me.

It is Giant Eagle high... for a flat it is high... I paid 2.49 at GFS when I heard of the HEB .99/lb. But that was full packer price. I had to trim myself. Full packer at my butcher is 3.50 a pound. Just a pure flat at 5.70/lb is high, not oh my god high but high. (Organic Grass fed black angus packer prices running 9-10/lb last I have heard.)

There is a County Market here in the boonies that prices their brisket like that. Funny thing is, that slot of the meat case is always packed full.

Okay, this got my curiosity up so I did a quick search. Ranchers Reserve Beef. I have never had this brand so there may be something to it, or it may be a load of crap to charge $5.69 for the worst cut on the cow.
