Default brisket price thread. for your local area

So around here as I have said before its very grocery dominated tourism area.

Publix, harris teeter and sams have flats for around 3.50 to 4.50 a pound

Sams whole briskets are 2.58 a pound but thats a case by. You can get them around tue holidays but other times you either have to get enough for a case or you are SOL

Local (25 miles aways) butcher is 6.99 a pound for select packers but they are always good..although expensive.

Walmart will occasionally have something cheaper grade.

Pigley wigly will occasiobally have one at 5 to 7 a pound.

I see many of you talking about 2 to 4 a pound..I am envious.

I have been looking to order online if my market is so out of price.
Do these prices sound outrages to you or in the ballpark?
What do you pay?

Same here with sticker shock. Saw a nice pack of dino bones at BJs until I saw the $32 price tag. Hate to say it but last years drought might have me a vegetarian till it turns.

HEB is $2.18/lb at most locations for packers that can vary from ungraded to CAB Choice. The closest wally world to me has packers for $1.77.lb, and they vary from select to choice with a ratio of about 50/50 select to choice in the display case at any one time. So if I were gonna get a brisket, I'd head over to wally's and pick out a nice choice packer in the 9 to 10 lb range that has an evenly thick flat and a decent point.

The real deal is when wallyworlds' packer briskets get close to the sell by date. They will mark them down to around $1.25 a lb, and they were nice enough to wet age them for me.

I guess i should just keep bothering Sams to get more in. Paying 6.99 a pound a couple times a month will kill my account at the butcher
