    I think in my case I'm just lucky because my grocer doesn't normally carry whole packers. For whatever reason their order sheet lists them at $4 a lb. I feel like I'm breaking the law a little bit when I buy them as they're Angus quality, and pretty good Angus to boot.

    Yea I went to Sam's Club....ya know the chain warehouse store that sponsors a huge KCBS BBQ competition Nationwide...and asked if I could order a full packer...he looked at me like I was speaking a foriegn language. They have flats and charge close to $7lb.

    USDA Choice is the grade. I just like a larger point is all.....I smoke the Brisket - give away the flat and keep the point for Burnt Ends.

    Not bad at all, I'd be happy with that. I'll have to check Gordon's, I didn't think of that. What grade do they sell, you know?

    Huskee don't feel too bad. WalMart want's $6 a lb for brisket flat here. If I order a whole packer from my grocery store, though, they only charge $4 a lb. They don't carry them so I have to talk to Justin (my butcher) and ask him to special order it.

    LOL....I will occasionally find them at Gordons but they are tiny.....9 to 11lbs...full packer.....$3.99 a lb tho. Guess that will have to work!

    Yeah MI isn't a real beef butcher's state apparently, other than the usuals. I about laughed out loud when I tried to find brisket at Meijer and it was a 4lb flat only, and $7.99/lb to boot. I'd rather buy a cow and raise it.

    Thanks Jon!! Great to meet you too! By chance do you ever smoke Brisket and if so where do you get your Brisket's from - I have a difficult time finding full packers larger than 10lbs.

    We always leave our differences at the door. But if you go back to the door you'll see the Tigers are kicking butt!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
