Compared to what? Chicken? Why do you always have to have the last word?

I get a four - to - Six pound brisket at the local Amish Market for under three bucks a pound Understand of course that that's a CUT of the whole brisket, wich accounts for 6 % of the meat that comes off the cow............... the one I pictured here yesterday started it's kitchen life as a four-pounder.
For purposes of serving it is good to know that a brisket will weigh-in after cooking at about 50% of the uncooked weight. Remember this at the time of purchase and don't go hungry!

Thanks everyone for the helpful advice.It's much appreciated.

I'll leave it up to my butcher.He's always been great about choosing the right cut of meat for one more of my harebrained ideas.I think he likes the challenge.

I will get back to you all asap, about it,and what I did with it.

Thanks again.

Munky.

Huh? That doesn't even make sense. I'm talking about the kick azz deals for meat I could get in California verses what suckky meat prices they have in North Carolina. I used to get 5 pounds of chicken for $10 in California. Here I'm lucky to get a third of that for the same price. It was a shock.

Brisket is crazy expensive here. Even corned beef is quadrupal what it was in California. I could get a package for $3 in Cali but here I've never been able to buy one for less than $10.

For whatever reason that I miss, Cali has great meat prices compaired to the other parts of the coutnry I've lived in. I miss California meat prices but in other parts of the US brisket costs the price of your first born,.

Thanks June, I will make a point of asking the butcher, it is usually a reasonably fatty cut for us so should roast really nice

Brisket like flank steak has now become rather expensive, at least MD. You can buy it at both Sam's and B J's. Also you can find it at most grocery stores. Usually around $3.50 to 4.00 lbs, depending on the season, summer time the price goes up.

It sure seems when a meat gains popularity, the price goes up. Example: Chicken Wings................Oh boy, maybe the price of Prime Rib will come down

$10 per pound? Or per how much? by weight? If you are paying $30 per 3 feet of meat like you said, that is not a lot of money.
