Typically does your beef cost more there North of the Border?

It's not how much you smoke but how many friends you make while doing it...

I think it all depends on where you live and where you shop. I live in a rural area where the choices are limited, therefore less competition higher prices.

Thanks Mike, I guess it's the same around here.  I live a bit rural also, just got to wait for the sales.

Hey-

Brisket around here, upstate NY runs 2.39/lb in the cryovac pack.  Keeps frozen forever.  Even on sale for 2.19, Spare ribs 1.99/lb, St. Louis Style.  Your brisket looks great.  I'm cooking one right now.  Up at 4:30 am.  Hope its done for dinner-

Rich

I was lucky, [:D] I caught Brisket on sale at WallyWorld the other day for $1.84/lb. Bought 2 of the suckers and after doing the trimming and reweighing I came up with about $1.96/lb. Cut them into flats & tips and vacuum sealed & froze about 3/4 of it.

Don't know if anyone else has had this experience at their local supermarket, but if I talk with one of the butchers and ask about getting a "Botson Butt","Tri-Tip", salmon fillets, "country style ribs", etc. because I smoke my own meat, it seems like they go out of their way to go in the back and cut me something special and give me a "sale price" on it--almost like it was a professional courtesy.  And if they don't have anything they think will fill the bill, they never try to sell me something "almost as good".  I had this happen twice now at local Stop + Shops.
