Hello fellow Mile High Smoker!
I have been seeing Walmart and Sam's come down in prices on Briskets. Wasn't until recently that I saw Walmart carry full packers. I have never been really impressed with the meat out of Walmart, so I am hesitant to buy one. I typically get mine from King Soopers (Krogers). Their regular price is 1.99 a pound, or at least has been for the last two years. As a matter of fact I got the pit heating up right now for a Brisket and chicken smoke. Got to feed some firemen tomorrow =)
I guess Im glad that I'm in Fla for I get them on sale sometimes for 1.10lb and even .99 a few times a year.
Do you have to wear a ski-mask to get them at that price?
Good to see, I am from Thornton too!
off of 120th / holly. (i25/120th.)
My dad got a packer from King Soopers for 2.89/lb, I told he he over paid. (he gave me a dirty look)
I had not idea they were 2$/LB, I've been going to King Soopers for a long time, I've never seen em @ that price.
I better start checking the paper.
*added, I was at Sams the other day, the price was 2.80$/LB.
I have to admit Walmart meat SUCKS, but it was cheap, so I figured WTH. (My first brisket was good, I hope this one is too)
The best meat I can find is at Albertsons or Sams.
This one was a Wal-Mart packer as is the one I have in the fridge (a $1.98 specimen) thawing out for a Monday smoke. One of the reasons ours is always priced a bit high is the grocer's union.
