Default Brisket Prices (Texas)

Brisket $0.47/lb at Albertsons in Dallas. Requires additional $10 purchase for more than one. I can hear the whining already but there is no cheese. Just got to decide how many to buy. What a farking problem.

OK, kick me again! That hurt, a lot :D

I haven't seen brisket under about $1.79 down here in Florida -- and, at least in the Clearwater area, it's almost impossible to get a whole packer brisket. Last I bought, at case price, was $2.19 and all flats. Good meat but EXPENSIVE.

I miss San Antonio - $.47 with $10 purchase, no sweat!! Enjoy it Brian!!

You suck donkeys! Albertson's up here sells just the extra trimmed flats for 3.69ish. Best packer I have found is 2.20, but I heard a rumor that cash & carry is 1.20

If it's already cooked (like smoked polish sausage I was hoping to bring) just freeze it, plastic bag, then wrapped in a towel.

It's just 5 hours from my freezer to Phil's back yard, so it should work for me.

If it wasnt for the security check, it would be a little over 3 hours.

And I saw nothing but 5# briskets in the cryo vac bags, (flats) and it looked like 3-6# (points?) right along side them, in the same Cryo. It was the Kroger grocery chain in IN. and they were $2something a pound

Do you have to carry it or can it be checked ? Have not flown in a long time think if they saw a cooler wrapped in duct tape they would freak out ? btw IT'S NOT COOKED.

I'll bring a couple nice briskets and 2 clean T's. Just do what Bill says with the sausage. It's not going to take too long for you to get to Phil's. You can probably just wrap 'em good, freeze 'em, and pack into tupperware before leaving to the airport. We'll toss 'em on the beast right quick when you arrive.

UPS Overnight works too. I use it all the time sending **** back and forth to Selma. You can buy Styrofoam boxes that fit exactly into a cardboard box. Throw in your frozen crap, throw in one of those Blue freezer pack dealies and send it on its way. Some packing peanuts to take up space.

Works like a charm.

The simple answer is "don't overcook it" -- and I'm not trying to be a smart-ass (I know, I don't have to try :D).

I pull mine about 170 and foil it and cook until about 180-185 - then I pull it out and cooler it -- but then I try to slice my brisket.

I recommend, after cooking, seperating the nose from the flat, cleaning them up and then slicing -- if you try to slice it all together you will wind up with a farking mess. Just my $.02 worth
