I don't know if I'd be doing that for beef, but that's just my personal taste - I lean more savory for beef, and I don't use a lot of sauce anyway. I would probably make something from the drippings - like defat and add a little beef broth/stock/whatever if necessary. You might like the BH/TN Red on brisket (and in fact I might!) - I just never tried it.

La Habra had a new batch of briskets out today. Still $2.60 The two I looked at were very and the thinnest flat I've ever seen.. I passed on them since I still have one in the freezer. But the good news is they still have them.

Just pulled off a 12 pounder off the smoker!
Cooked for 10 hrs. Real juicy, like butter.
Letting it rest in the cooler!
Pron to follow!

Double Brisket! Double Brisket!

Yorba Linda Costco delivers!

Tip: Do not do a pony dance after you snag them! Wait until you get home. It draws attention to the brisket.

That's interesting. Gotta go back and see if our local still has CAB.

Resurrected!! Horrible news from La Habra Costco. My wife was in twice this week, with no luck. Tuesday the meat guy said they didn't have any in the back, but they get the Prime meat deliveries "midweek". She went again Thursday and found none. The meat guy said they get whatever comes in, in Prime grade, they don't order it. They did have Prime Chuck Roast @ $3.49 lb.

If any one is still finding them at their local Costco, please report where you find them. I was lucky enough to score 5 so far, 2 still in the freezer. Dang, they take up a lot of freezer space!

Only one of the three I have cooked was really great. I need to do better.

Good luck Prime Hunters! We will continue to look at the 3 or 4 different Costco stores that we frequent, and will put it here if we find any.

According to one of the meat dept guys at the Canoga Park Costco, when I asked him whether they would be stocking them regularly from now on, the reply was no, but he did say they should have more around the holidays. This apparently is a regional test they're doing, and if the numbers add up after the holidays, they may stock them regularly in Costco's that are located near more upscale neighborhoods.

Fingers crossed!

Burbank seems to have it in stock all the time since they started stocking them. I havent checked lately since I still have two primes left plus I just scored two Wagyu briskets from my local neighborhood butcher. I need a bigger freezer.

ssv3, if you don't mind me asking, who is your butcher? I'm looking for a decent one. Thanks!

Not at all. It's called Harmony Farms in La Crescenta/Glendale Foothills. Sometimes I walk in and sometimes I special order or simply order specific cuts. I had the Wagyu briskets special ordered and it took him a bit but he got 3 in. I took two.

You're a mind reader. Yep! That's where I get my meat from exclusively bro. Can't go to the grocery stores anymore. The difference is night and day. Slightly pricey but well worth it IMO. Costco Prime briskets are great though.
