Where can I find raw brisket in Raleigh?

Anyone have any ideas? I can't find it at my local supermarkets and The Fresh Market also didn't have it. I would love to smoke a side of brisket, but can't seem to source any locally. Thanks in advance!

    Sam's Club has brisket pretty consistently. Very occasionally, you can find it at Harris Teeter.

      Fresh Market, Harris Teeter, etc. should be able to order it for you, if you ask at the meat counter I've seen brisket in International Foods (formerly Compar Foods). You may also want to check with your local farmer's market vendors. If you're really stuck for a source, there are meat vendors at the inside part of the State Farmer's Market.

      1. Does it need to be kosher? If so, you may have a problem at this late date. If not, I got mine Sunday at BJ's and cooked it on Monday. The briskets at BJ's generally weigh between 5 and 6 pounds and will need trimming before you cook them. I'd rather take the time myself and trim carefully than have a careless store "butcher" lop off loads of good meat that you just paid for.

          TJ's has plenty, at least in CH.

        2. I see it at Costco most visits.
