[Sobeys] Sobeys GTA: Beef Brisket Canada AA $6.99 lb.

As a smoker owner I have been following the thread: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/costco-c ... v-2279389/
Though not as good as the Costco AAA deal - this week's Sobey's flyer( I checked a few GTA stores) has Canada AA beef brisket for $6.99 lb on the front page:

Difference is that this seems to have been cut (maybe trimmed) - and likely a portion of the flat. Still good, but different from a packer brisket. I have bought this cut before from lococos - think it was a 6lb roast - you can get it there by order - I wanna say that it was regular price $5-6/lb maybe $7.

Related question - anyone know where to buy just flats vs a packer? Kinda tired of dealing with the point, although it does help protect the flat.

Dibs on your point.
Not that would make sense since you're probably GTA and I'm not.

+1 I'd take the point over the flat always.

Going to have to find a Sobeys.... Not many near me.

Can't do burnt ends with a flat.
That's the best part.

Definitely the most tender. Meat candy.

I really wouldn't call this a good price for what looks like a heavily trimmed brisket.

Pictures in a flyer don't mean much as each store has it's own butcher/staff who processes the cuts differently. I'm pretty sure they're OK with leaving more fat on the cut and charging you for it.

Not sure about Sobey's but at Metro you can talk to the butcher and place "order" with preferences and they can be accommodating. I've done this with the Prime Rib cuts because many times there are only two ribbers in the bunker but I might be looking for a four ribber.

I'm not a smoker, alternatively what's the best bet for a pot roast cut of brisket, slow cooker or pressure cooker?
