    That's as good a price as I've seen this year...nice find!  Last Fall, Mrs. Red stumbled upon choice brisket for $1 a lb...but she only picked up 3 of them!  Those 3 are long gone, and now I'm looking for sales again.

    Mauser, your location says N.M. mountains...if you don't mind saying, where exactly?  I once lived on Vermejo Park Ranch for a couple of years.  About 45 miles west of Raton in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.  Sure pretty country...

    Ohhh! Ohhh! I love Ruidoso. Visited there many times and I like that place!
  10. Dam.  If i found a brisket that cheap I would get about 50 of them.  They're around $9-10/lb here.   Never seen any sales either.
  11. I'm up to between 6.00 & 10.00 dollars depending on how far I want to travel

    Costco has been my best brisket source so far. Prime-grade packers at my closest store are $3.29/lb. Sometimes Super Walmart has choice for around $3/lb, but I'll spend the extra couple bucks for the prime if possible.

    OP, why are you deleting your posts?
  14. That is in response to censorship and tiny minds of some individual(s) on this site.  I posted a rather lighthearted rant about a serious subject -  how the fools at Texas A&M have completely destroyed the jalapeño for all of us; it is virtually impossible to buy a real one anymore.  Obviously I upset someone, and Zippy's response was to totally delete the post without even communicating with me in any way.  I do not accept that type of fascist behavior.

    I do not know if anything I post has any value, but I DO know that I do not want my words or thoughts associated with any site that welcomes Zippy the Pinhead or Little Hitler as a moderator.

    $3.99 a lb. is standard here. Sale price is around $3.29 my connection who works for a restaurant supply company called me the other day and said I have some briskets that are close to freeze date and wanted to know if I wanted one at $2.69 a lb. I said I will take a case! [​IMG] Too late other employees jumped on the rest so only one available [​IMG]

    So he stopped by the house with it after he got off of work. A nice 14lb choice packer! Creekstone Farms no less! [​IMG]
  16. Well now i wish i had seen it.
    I love a good aggie ribbing, especially the way aggies always overreact to it
