Upstate NY, Oneonta area. I've been looking to purchase a packer brisket now for about two weeks. Aside from Walmart My only three options are BJ's, Price Chopper, and a Hanaford grocery chain. In each case the price for a Choice brisket was $3.99 per pound or even higher.
Walmart was selling a below select grade for $1.49 (Yes the meat manager actually said it was a bit above dog food grade)
Anyway, talk about sticker shock. What's strange is that they are all selling choice corned beef at a much lower price. Go figure?
Is this price indicative of the rest of the country?
