I'm on the email list for Main Street Meats in Farmingdale, NY and they are advertising choice and prime briskets for 3.99 a pound. Not sure why they would be the same price, but even for choice, that's a great price around here. I bought some steaks their last weekend and was taking with one of the butchers and he said they carry whole Briskets and that they were prime beef for 5.99 a pound. A little pricey for my maiden voyage with a brisket but this deal might convince me to give it a shot in my new MES. Apparently they are going to begin smoking meats at the shop so maybe they will regularly carry bbq meats they normally wouldn't. Packers, beef ribs, etc.
