Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Costco brisket

Went to Costco today to buy two briskets for an overnight cook tonight. Well, guess what? Costco will no longer sell briskets still in the cryovac. All the briskets were trimmed down to 3.5 to 4.5 lbs. all the fat trimmed off. I spoke with the manager and he told me that it was a corporate decision because they could charge more for meat that they have to process. The Costco I am referring to is in Greenville SC. Has anyone else experienced this?

    That sucks.  Do you have Sams Club nearby?

    My local Costco normally only puts out trimmed brisketletts, but when I've asked, they've had the cryo ones in the back available for sale.  Recently, they've been putting out some monster sized flats in the cryo.  10+lbs, wide, long, and thick.  If that was the end, I'm going to be kicking myself for not buying one or more when I saw them.

    They are doing that I Limerick PA as well.   I just told my son tonight no way we were buying it at 5.99 lb and I do want the fat on it as well..
