[Save On Foods] AAA Beef Brisket $4.99/lb $11.00/kg

Believe Save On is in western Canada only and this was in a BC flyer.

AAA full packer beef brisket. Costco is $11.99 in BC so this is a bit cheaper than Costco. Have heard some stores are even $3.99 $8.80/kg in store but don't know if this is chain wide.

Save on is notorious for going out of stock VERY quickly. I'm going to try my luck, but more often then not, meat deals for me are always OOS.

I read this as strip loin and got really excited. I opened the app and saw that it was sirloin and my excitement disappeared. Thanks for the heads-up though.

Brisket is 50+% fat. That equates to over $10 per pound of raw meat. Might as well buy $10+ per pound T-bone, prime rib or strip loin steaks when on sale and use the meat however you like.

LOL. That's nonsense.

You're obviously oblivious to BBQ.

The Costco one is $11.99/KG not pound which works out to be $5.45/lb. Either way this is a better deal.

X2.

If you're not there the first day or two of the sale you'll be SOL.

Discounted, wet aged brisket? Yes please!
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

I saw about a dozen at PriceSmart Foods in Richmond yesterday. It was $3.99/lb (8.80/kg). Most pieces in the $60-80 range. YMMV.

But then you have to factor in the fat percentage of those cuts! And goodness me, t-bones have a BONE! That brings the efficiency down further! Might have to factor that in at a different rate than the fat % though, since you have to consider BBCP (bone broth creation potential).

Long story short, stop min-maxing your meat choice and realize that this is a good price for a cut that has a specific purpose.

Don't forget to load up your offers in the Save On app. You can get 400 points per each $25 spent and 2x points. I totally forgot about it when I bought. :(

* Brisket is a cut from the breast area below the neck. It is quite low in fat at 20%, which is why you have to cook it low and slow to break up the connective tissue.
