I go threw 30+ cases of Briskets a year & sometimes find a few clinkers
We have a local meat packing company (Tyson's) & I have a contact at the plant & get discounts on 5 or more cases - (30 briskets)
PS. Sams has Case Ribs on for 1.58 right now - & that makes them apx 50.00 a case = a good deal
- If I wink at the butcher - he sells me ALL the left handed briskets I want .........wink
Always....6 briskets / 9 racks per case - NEVER have i found it to be diff
Fred! You just set me in motion! After reading your post I quickly got my *** off the couch and made a quick run to Sams. My Sams had the case of IPB Spares for $1.62 instead of $1.58 per lb. The regular price is $2.27 per lb.
Correct, 3 packages of 3 for a total of 9 racks. 42 plus lbs cost me $69.98. If I had bought three individual packages, they would have cost me $95 plus. Gotta clear out some freezer space if I am going to check out a case of brisket.
