Most stores seem to carry only flats. Any ideas?

  1. In Camden DE we can only find them at Walmart, not even Sams has them and none of the other groceries carry the packer cut. It's worth a look at your local Walmart Superstore.

    1. My suggestion is for you to find a Beef Wholesaler or Restaurant Cash and Carry Food Service Store that is open to the public.

      Maybe Western Beef is an option.


      1. You could try dealing directly with a farmer -



        1. Is there a Restaurant Depot near by Thats where I get mine they have select beef which is the third lowest grade usually and old cow but they do have CAB Choice around 17-20 pounds The point is the best IMO

          1. ask Porricelli's in Greenwich to get it for you. I live in Trumbull and the branch here gets it for me. I never use first cut only brisket.

              I know where you are coming from I but buy the whole piece point and all the point is called burnt ends the most flavorful part of the brisket then I slip the knife to remove it and just finifh smoking the flat piece. But whats even better than that is to get a 1/2 of a gooseneck they sell them in Sams CLub, BJ's they take a long time to smoke but they come out like jelly what a flavor. Now I am going to go out and buy one thats how hungry this rec made me.

                It all depends on ethnicity. We call the flap or point the deckle. Most fat, most flavor.

            2. Actually found them at Fairway in Stamford. Got a great 12 pounder for $3.29/lb!
