I just bought two Angus, whole briskets, choice for $1.78 a pound at Sam's.

I guess the "whole" would be a packers cut?

They also have just the flats.

Angus whole packers for $1.79 is a steal!

Nice score.

I went by Sam's again tonight (Sarasota Florida) to check and see if they had whole briskets there and they only have the untrimmed flat.   >:(  I guess I'll be going to the Butcher 2maro and getting my Packer's cut.  At $2.79 per lb.  Anyone know where I can order and have it shipped?  Obviously not in time for the super bowl  :-\
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?

I get the Sams flats. Not as good as the whole packer I bought at the butcher, but not a $60 brisket either.

The Mrs. usually ends up picking them up for me, she does the "bend test" and picks them that way.

The thought is if you can bend it and touch the ends it will turn out tough.

It might be an "old texans wives tale" but it works for me.

Maybe I'll see you there and we can do a meet and greet.

I've seen a photo of you here and I think I can pick you out of a crowd.

During the summer time months, brisket here is normally $1.39lb

and when it is on sale it dips to .89 or .99lb.

But they are not Angus.
