Here in Lakeland, it's the same but a the SuperWalMart, I can find excel packers all the time. We have a large migrant population and the mexican style foods and lower cuts of meat are fairly easy to find. Just not at the Sam's Club here in town. They're getting ready to open one just down the road from my house around the start of the year and I'll check to see if they have anything different there compared to the one that's in the more"upscale" area.

Our Sams here in Foutain Valley just closed, so they could open a newer one with sh***er customer service right next door.
The only problem I've had is that they only put out pre-trimmed briskets. You have ring the button and wait for the dip ****s in white to request an untrimmed one. They always get so pissed that you asked them to walk to the back of the meat locker to get the untrimmed one, then they hand it to you they give this attitude like "....why do you want the fat on it?....".

We were told not to order them as their not in season now. WTF? Went and checked out, stopped by customer srvcs. Asked them why no briskets? They said whats a brisket? OMG now im really getting miffed. They said go back to meat dept. and talk to mgt. I told them I did and was sent here. Ladies said hey we dont know what to tell ya. I said isnt this cust. services? They said yes so I asked to speak w/store manager. He isnt here. I said ok and probably wont renew my membership. They told me to go and fill out a complaint card and stuff it in the bitch box. I did but doubt if I will go back after my card expires. I realize im up here in Michigan but is this the norm in the warmer sections of the county while we freeze our arses off during the winter months? Just wondering here and thanks for any comments. Sure am gonna miss my brisket chili.

Hey Mike,

We have them in Flint, I just picked one up this weekend, a brisket that is. They also have Tri-Tip every day so that is a bonus as well. Let me know and I can pick you up 1 or 2.

Sam's is owned by Walmart and last winter I was in Walmart
looking for Ketchup. after searching for a good while, thinking
that I'm blind.. I asked one of the employee's and was told that
Ketchup was out of season.. they only sell Ketchup in the summer.
So I guess nothing about Walmart or Sams would shock me..

No chit? Southside store had em. Guess I went to the wrong place then. Opps forgot I went to the high society Sams Club. I go to the other one as its closer to me. Guess I will head s.e. next time I get a wild hair up my nose for brisket chili. Thanks mbowker641.

Actually, I have noticed that the COSTCO in Melville has had a fairly consistant supply of brisket flats since the holidays in September. Haven't seen too many (if any) butts other than in my local King Kullen, and even that has been inconsistant.
