Howdy Brethren,

On the hunt again for a great deal on packer brisket. Famously, this past July 4th (2015), Albertson's offered up their Choice packer briskets for $1.99/ lb. For Labor Day? Fuhgaddabowdit. Just checked, and they're still $3.49/lb.

The closest I've found this week is a local Walmart has two (yes, 2!) available for $2.38/lb. Yes, this is Select, but still a good cut of beef.

Planning to swing by today and pick them both up. That is, unless any of my other DFW-area brethren can point me in a better direction?

Thanks, boys. And happy Q'in this weekend!

I can often find whole untrimmed briskets here in the NOLA area for the $2/lb price range at Sam's Club.

However, the grocery store ads here just came out, and twin packs of bone in boston butt pork roasts are on sale for $0.97/lb.

I'm not buying anymore as that my deep freezer is filled with those things..but I might go hunting for a brisket...

Yep. I just picked up a 13 lb. bone-in pork shoulder for 12 bucks. Don't think I can ever beat that again!

Man I gotta move. Haven't seen any pork below 1.50 is and brisket below 2.99 in many years.

I live on 820 near Eagle Mountain Lake. I have about 4 walmarts within 5-10 radius of me. I checked a couple of them the other day and both had Choice packers at 2.38lb. I checked the Lake Worth walmart yesterday and they had about 10 choice briskets left, all about 17-19lbs a piece :shock:

WinCo sells only choice, and they were $2.49 the other day when I was there. Pretty sure you have one right near you.

I do. Just called and checked. My local one is selling them for 2.98 a pound. Still not as good as Walmart. Thanks.

That's the one suck thing about WinCo. Their prices and stock can vary a lot from location to location and even day to day.

Wal Mart here has them for 2.96/lb. Our Sams has them for over 3.00 a pound. Go figure. Both are for Choice briskets. Kroger is nearly 4.00/lb and are select.
