Default Brisket statement ...

Called around looking for a "Packer" and out of 4 butchers 3 tried to talk me into a flat ?!?!? Seems to me that from a business standpoint I'd GLADLY sell you fat (what they are all calling "waste") for the same per lb price as prime angus.

The only place I've seen a packer in the cabinet is Walmart which I usually look down my nose at for meat.

Why the butcher dilemma and you ever cooked a Wally World brisket ?

There is a restaurant depot in richmond, they have choice and their own labeled superiour angus choice briskets - full packers - always available.

Need a membership to get in, which you can get when you join KCBS or if you can provide ID for any type of business (i got my card from someone who is a wholesaler of silk flowers - nothing to do with the food industry or retail)

Nothing wrong with a Wally World brisket. Grab one that is flexible and will bend over your arm

Awesome !!! As far as Packer vs flat.... Seems like a win win on their side why do they talk down the packer you think ? Costco (my go to) sells flats but it seems everyone in the know says packers are the way to go ?!?!? Confusing for a first timer

They probably only have flats.

Butchers and stores will sell flats at a much higher price per pound.

Also people selling them see the amount of fat that is on a packer and think that you are wasting money buying layers and layers of fat on that piece of meat. Little do they know that a well cooked full packer is some of the best pieces of beef you can put in your mouth.

Here s the Straight Skinny packers are cheap compared to market trim flats. Butchers But Packers for 2.00 lb Remove the Flats, Trim off all or almost all of the fat cap, Cut in to 2-3 pieces to sell to Yidish grandmothers for 6.50 lb, Points are ground or chunked and sold for Stew meat, Chili meat or made into sausage and sold for 3.50 lb. That 25.00 packer just put 7 5.00 in his pocket and that is why butchers push Flats.

I've cooked 4 briskets from Wally World and they've come out great. I check for marbling, flexibility, and the thickness of the flat. The ones my local Wally World has are stamped choice and cost $2.58/lb

Bet those three butchers never had a GOOD brisket. Bad point meat sucks. Average point meat sucks.

Our Walmarts here carry Excel brand briskets, which is the same brand that Sams carries, and Kroger, and a few local stores carry Excel brand. Most of the Walmart ones I see are not graded.
