    I'm seeing prices going Sky high too [​IMG]. My solution , get friendly with the Mkt. Mgr. , and find out when the mark down is , and be there when he does it,can save half at times...

    If I see other people waiting for something to happen at the Meat counter, watch out --I'm a big Boy and it was MY idea [​IMG][​IMG]

    I got mine last week at Sam's Club for $2.99 a pound....it was an Angus....and was great!  Check Sam's or Costco!

    I paid $1.77 per pound at Walmart in the Fort Worth, Tx area yesterday for a 13 Lb. packer brisket. It was just under $2.00 a pound a couple of weeks ago at Walmart. Costco and Sam's are usually in the $2.25-2.50 range around here. 

    The Walmart brisket was as good as any I've bought at Costco.

    Here in Amarillo Texas close to Hereford aka "beef country" ...yea right give me a break! Anyway, another story another time I can get a full packer for 2.19lb for select I think choice is like 2.29 prime is like 2.49 I believe maybe a little more but when they go on sale you can get brisket for .99 lb that's when I buy 10 o them at 10-12 bucks a pop!!!
