At the ft hood commissary, I pay $2.00 per pound for choice packer brisket.
That would be pretty small for a whole brisket. My commissary only sells flats and they are all 7-10 pounds. They are all labeled as "whole briskets" but usually have little to no point left on them.
Here's a great brisket tutoral site-and regardless, just cook and enjoy.
