For those that use a local butcher VS a grocery store or warehouse, what are you paying typically per pound? My local guy here has bb-ribs on sale for $4.99 a LB (normally $5.99) and his brisket at $3.99 (nose off-$4.99...I'm not sure what his normal price for these are.) Just trying to see if he is within range of normalcy. Speaking of brisket and having never made one before, what is the advantage (if any) of having the nose off? When you go to your butcher, is best to buy just what you need as it will be the freshest or do prefer to load and freeze the rest of it for a later day?
Thanks in advance for your time and advice.
