Probably dry ice
Keep in mind there's a $25 delivery charge if the order is under $250

Anyone seen these in the GTA? I've been looking for the past few weeks and had no luck finding any.

I thought I saw a post where someone saw it at Kitchener...but AFAIK the farthest east this has been seen is Winnipeg. Most of the chatter from GTA posters has been about getting AAA brisket from the Costco Business Centre for the same price.

What are the smoking details?
I tried one yesterday and wasn't blown away.
225 until 160, then foiled and in again until 195. Let it rest for 2 hours.
You injected broth and the spices?
Thanks
225 until 160, foil on until 180. Back in until 195 to reduce moisture. Rest 3 hours.

Yes, I used a "flavour injector" that I bought from the dollar store. I put all my spices in my Nutri-Bullet, blended them to a paste, and injected into the meat before cooking.

It adds so much flavor as a whole because once the fat starts to render, the juices seep from all locations into the whole brisket. My brother grabbed one today and wants me to prep it for him next weekend because of how well it came out.
I got kicked out of Chapters because I moved all the Bible's to the fiction section.

For anybody looking to pick-up a beef brisket for the long weekend, the Costco business centre in Scarborough had it in stock yesterday afternoon.

As others have stated, it was AAA at $8.99/kg. The packages were approximately 6 kg each. There were more than 5 packages out when I left.

I was there at 9:30am and there was a person there stocking the brisket shelf. There were at least 25, ranging from 10 lbs to one that was 18 lbs, with most about 12-14 lbs. They are whole briskets but partially trimmed already. I made a comment to him that they had so much and he said that it’s very popular and it will sell out well before end of day.

Spotted some at the NE Calgary Costco (Sunridge) on Sunday (I believe they were only spotted at Beacon Hill and Crossiron previously). All big ones though, roughly 8-9kg.

We really should all be messaging Costco Canada to make this a staple in their warehouses nationally.

It's a challenge but I think I got it down, after much research. A lot of places say to get it to 175-180 internal temperature. Not good enough. I get it to 160F naked then wrap it in foil and let it go to 205F. Once it hits 205F I get it out. Cut of the point, chop it up, put it back in the smoker to make burnt ends.The process takes almost 24 hours, but you'll have friends for life.
Very interesting - I tend to wrap a bit earlier (155F ish to make sure it doesn't hit the stall but also has enough time to get really smokey), let the ambient temp drop a bit and take out closer to 185F. How high do you have the ambient temp and how long does it typically take to get to 205F? I think I'll try this out soon (just finished 90-day-dry-aging a brisket and may try something new with it)

This 3 stage method didn't work for me.
I think that the moisture after the foiling actually cooled down the meat.
So temps dropped way down, then a long time to get internal back up.
It blackened the edges, but not in a good way.
I didn't try injecting.

Next experiment will be to try 160 naked, foil to 205, then rest for 2 hours.

Looks like they have corned brisket too, which is basically brisket brined in spices.
You're halfway to making some Montreal smoked meat right there.

Though the price is only slightly higher,
I assume the value is not as good because you're paying for the weight of a lot more liquid, not meat

Still....if you think smoked brisket can make you friends for life, if you make Montreal smoked brisket you might have groupies for life!

I agree - I just sent a message to customer service on the Costco website asking for them to be carried in Orillia or Barrie. Make it a campaign!
