Default .99 Brisket!

Albertson's (at least here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area) will have packer briskets on sale Easter weekend (Fri., Sat., and Sun.) at .99 cents per pound (limit two with a $10 minimum purchase.) You'll need your "Preferred Shopper" card.

Clear some space in the freezer, gather up family and friends and GO SHOPPING!

Ken

Can I send you you guys my card and $10 so you can buy me some brisket? Albertson's here won't ever do such a thing. Thought though - give me a zip code from a local Albertson's. I"ll print the add and bring it to my local ALbertson's and plead with the meat man.

Jeez, if I knew anyone in the area I could have them ship me a few. Even with shipping it'd be cheaper than I can get 'em here! Maybe not though..., I've been able to get untrimmed packers from my butcher for 1.89 to 2.29 / lb. Once they tried to charge me 2.99 but that was the trimmed price. I said whoa, hang on, why so much? The guy behind the counter realized his mistake and laughed because I knew their pricing better than he did.

My plan:

Me X 2 = 24 lbs + wife X 2 = 24 lbs + Brother and Sister-in-Law X 4 = 48 lbs + their daughter and her boyfriend + her younger sister = 72 lbs for a total purchase this Friday of 168 lbs of packers.

Repeat above strategy on Saturday and Sunday for a grand total of 504 lbs of beef (42-12# packers!)

Time to gas up the truck.

NO WAY!! I just got home 10 minutes ago from Krogers, their flats are $3.99 a pound. I followed the meat lady around that had the price gun and she was marking some down, I got a 2.5 pounder at $2.00 a pound but that's the cheapest I've seen it here in Michigan in a long time.

My ad came out of this morning's Star-Telegram. Dude...just be at Albertson's early Friday morning 'cause if you wait, me and my crew will have the meat coolers emptied by nine!
