Now, tell us how the Earth is flat.
if you buy a full brisket be prepared to trim a lot of fat.

However it is pretty ******** to tell someone to buy a t-bone instead of a brisket.

Don't forget how much gasoline you have to burn by driving to the store to pick up the meat.
How much per pound does that equates to.

A whole brisket is 12-14+ lbs. I usually get half a brisket and the point if possible. You need some fat to keep it moist and tender.

I agree with you.

Tempted to try a brisket again. My first 4 attempts have been underwhelming.

I didn't even know it was $4.99 in the ad. When I got there the price sticker just said $3.99. Maybe overstocked? Mine was 17 pounds.

the last brisket I had was around 50% fat. Costco ones should be leaner but supermarket ones are iffy.

It's $3.99/lb in Manitoba. If it's $3.99/lb in Alberta I'm guessing it'll be $3.99/lb in Saskatchewan. Sorry BC lol

well apparently the reason things are so expensive in BC is you have to pay if you want the best.

Not sure why but I've never gravitated to homemade burgers. I enjoy Wendy's burgers, or a nice lamb burger at a restaurant, but never a beef burger at home.

I've tried a brisket from a transplanted Texan friend, and it was so perfect. Just never able to replicate or even get anywhere close. Legit good brisket is heavenly. So so brisket is forgettable.

the advertised price in BC is $4.99/lb but it's $3.99/lb in store. Is it advertised as $3.99/lb in other provinces?

There is also a gas promo code - 6c/L discount code with Chevron if you spend $50 in store at Save on. I believe that's up to 100L so another potential to save up to $6 if your car or I guess your truck has a big tank.

I went to the SoF on Main St in Vancouver on Thursday at 5pm (first day of the sale) and was told it’s sold out and unsure if they will get more.

I ended up finding some at PriceSmart in Richmond yesterday. They had quite a few in stock.

I was expecting $4.99/lb as advertised, but both stores had it for $3.99/lb, which is an awesome price for any cut of beef these days.

I don’t have a bbq or smoker. I portion into 3 pieces and cook a piece like how I usually do blade roast in the oven. Turned out really good tonight. :)
