Before we left Houston, we stopped at Costco to pick up a couple briskets. $3.59# for Prime vs $3.39# for choice. You know what I got!!! :D

We got the apartment situated and made all the selections for the new house. I have never spent so much money in one day. Damn you upgrades!!! :P

    Give me enough notice so I can stop eating a few days in advance.

    I'm not good for much, but let me know if I can help with anything.

    So what would it take to have you start shipping prime brisket to those of us less fortunate?

    Minnesota to Texas, worth a trip if you want an adopted son, brother, whatever you want to call me to get some of that. Do us proud and enjoy those great looking briskets.

    @Caliking and free colonoscopy are two things that don't need to be said together.

    @cazzy‌ dammit man! I just left Sams and "USDA Choice" whole packers were at $3.59per# (they looked good but, still not Prime). That's a great buy. Or buy(s) as it were. I was hungry when I went to Sams. I went there for some green bananas and a case of Yuengling. Walked out with 2 monster packs of baby backs, several whole chickens, a nice floppy thick brisket flat, green bananas and a case of Yuengling. SMH. :-)

    If shipping didn't suck balls, I'd be willing to do it. Looking at overnight and ice packs to keep it from thawing out.

    Damn good prices. No where to be found like that in Seattle. Heck ground beef is $5 lb in some spots, I don't pay that no way.

    I did a CAB choice packer last weekend that ran me $5.25/lb. Choice is $3.79/lb.

    CAB was from a meat distributor and choice from smart and final. My Costco doesn't sell brisket and Sam's only sells flats.

    @henapple and @Eggcelsior - rectal exams are free. I charge for colonoscopies.

    Wow, this is the first post I was teetering on clicking "Disagree" solely because I will never see a prime brisket in the store, lol.

    Relax Pete, it's just the thread title I used to get interaction in my thread. Does it deserve a more positive title? I don't know yet...I'll answer that in 4 years. I know it has some big shoes to fill coming from San Antonio.

  • c,   I don't see why it's necessary to sound aspersive to Houston in order to get thread "interaction".

    And, I am relaxed.

    And, welcome to Houston (or really, Katy)!

    Texas is not so bad.  I mean, it's no GA or anything when it comes to Q, but it ranks up there I guess. 



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
