    Costco brisket prices

    Just before the 4th, I noticed a huge jump in brisket prices at the local Costco. Instead of the normal $3.29/lb or so, it shot up to $5.99/lb. Then yesterday I saw this: American wagyu brisket prices less than prime!

    This weekend at the Costco in Colorado Springs the whole packers were $5.99 for Choice grade and $8.99 for the Choice flats.. I would have still paid the $5.99 if they had been prime.

      Prime brisket $4.98/lb on Friday at Costco here. That’s down from $5.99/lb when I was there two weeks ago. Still way up from past times but heading the right way!

        I would have definitely bought the Wagyu! $5 a pound for prime brisket at my local Costco which was the same price as choice IIRC.

            I paid $4.98 a pound for a prime packer that was just under 18 pounds on Saturday at Sam's. I was hoping to wet age a while, but I was just informed that the gathering I'm cooking it for has been moved up to Thursday evening. Oh well.

                  I've bought McGoo at 7 cents each. Let's see who knows where that was..

                  Just saw this post and comments. JGo37 I used to get Sam McGoo in the Philippines and Okinawa when I was stationed there. Don't remember the price, but it sure was cheap.

                My question is about the Wagyu - will that be / is that common? I'd have to try that at almost any price, let alone at a bargain. I'm familiar with how American Wagyu was sourced and bred here - there's so many scenarios. Purebred line, mixed with local cattle... I wonder too how to tell what Costco is actually selling.

                  I saw it at Costco maybe 2 months ago. It's been there off and on since then. They had maybe 3 Wagyu briskets when I took that picture. If you had asked me 2 months ago, I would have said it'd be nice to try but I wouldn't spend that much on a brisket when I can get Prime for $3.29...

                Last brisket I purchased from Costco was a prime packer at $2.99 / pound.

                  My local Costco has had Prime brisket at 2.99/lb for darn near a year (3.29 before that). Then recently, just as you experienced, it jumped to 5.99/lb. A $45 packer now cost $90! Still some of the cheapest beef around, but I def got spoiled with the low prices.

                  Didn’t see any wagyu last time I was there, but I’ll keep an eye out for it next time.

                    Not seeing any packer briskets at Costco in NY. If anyone does please shout it out.

                      The Costco Business Center in Hackensack (about 2-3 minutes off of I-80) Usually has them - prime, too. I haven't been in some time, but it's where I'd go to find them if it were me. You don't need a business membership. Any membership will work. They have a giant walk-in refrigerated room with the meat and produce in it.
