Buying Whole Beef Brisket in Manhattan?

hellskitchen6 Apr 16, 2009 08:11 AM

I'm looking to buy a whole untrimmed brisket to smoke this weekend. Something in the 10/12 pound range with fat still on.

Any suggestions where to find this in Manhattan?

    I've had good luck at Whole Foods

      The butcher on 22nd and 2nd will do this for you, he's done it for me in the past with great results. Not sure what he'd chage /lb.
      He's good, here's his number: 212-481-1114

        I'm sure Ottomanelli's would take care of you.
