Just bought a couple of briskets from Costco labeled "USDA choice" and weighing roughly 8.5# each for $4.39/lb. They are only labeled as vacuum packed. Is it possible that these are flats instead of entire packers. They definitely have a fat cap on one side but my only brisket buying has come from walmart and they are much closer to 14-15# there. Not USDA choice but i've never had a problem with them tasting fantastic. Has anyone ever bought from Costco or seen whole packers in this weight range?
