    Some Good News On The Brisket Front…

    I just got back from Costco, and prime brisket is down to $4.19/lb. I know someone will come along and say "it was $1.99 at HEB last week", but this is big news in Chicagoland. I can’t remember the last time I paid less than $4.99/lb. BTW, I didn’t buy this or any other brisket today, it was just the one that was front and center.

      A few years back, I was laying out meat for a summer BBQ (a lot of meat). My daughter was helping and she exclaimed "what? Are you cooking for a rodeo???" ... which I shared with the Pit .... and it's been a running joke between FireMan and I ever since. :-)

      Step? Ya gotta watch yer step when there’s a rodeo goin on, yessir.

    Good to hear. I think it was $5.49 for Prime for me last week, $4.69 for Choice. And yeah, that there's a biggun, good thing you left it.


      Good to know. I live a mile outside of Chicago and was a planning on a Costco run tonight…..but now I don’t think I need too.


        Good deal. BTW - $5.00/lb at HEB so your Costco beat us (this time)


          Good to know! Good job I was able to sneak in the Click purchases when brisket was expensive!


            It was $1.99 lb last week at HEB.

              Hmmm gonna have to swing by Sams tomorrow... I wonder if the wife will let me borrow her car, I know even if I park in the furthest corner of the largest parking lot in our town someone is gonna door ding me there lol.


                Yeah. I was in Costco today and prime brisket was $4.79 a pound! Unfortunately, they only had two monster 21 pound babies so I had to pass for now. I guess the brisket shortage is over!


                  I paid $4.89 a pound for a prime 10 pounder at Costco in Sarasota today.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  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.
