Steve, they'll be even cheaper after the 17th. I picked up 2 or 3 last year at half price after the 17th and froze them.

Good idea. I already have stew planned for St. Paddy's.

Steve, Thank you! It was good and the onions that cooked in the beer really made the dish.

I wanted to corn my own brisket but here in Southern Arizona it is hard to find and when I did it was expensive But the already corned brisket was inexpensive.

That looks wonderful! Ever since I discovered baking (or slow roasting, whatever...lol) corned beef instead of stove top simmering, I use the oven method all the time now. Much more flavorful.

Yes it is but I do blanch it in simmering water to remove some of the salt.

I've corned brisket from scratch before and the flavor is definitely an improvement over the pre-packaged corned beef, in my opinion. But it takes about 10 days and finding food grade saltpeter (potassium nitrate) can be a trick. My grocer doesn't carry it, so I had to order it online from a science supply company. I just don't have the time or inclination to do it this year.
