Last minute brisket near Houston?

Postby erichasaces » Tue Mar 03, 2015 11:25 am

I'm cooking the Sam's Club in Shreveport this weekend, and because of life stuff, I still haven't bought my brisket. I was going to order wagyu, but I've run out of time. Can anyone tell me the best place to buy brisket in the Houston area? I have checked the Costco near me, Sam's, multiple HEBs, Trader Joe's, etc and haven't found anything that I liked. Also, are there any places that I can get better pork butts or ribs than what I can get at Sam's?

I know this topic has been discussed before, but I'm wondering what the current advice would be. Thanks for any help!

Most of the time I can find choice briskets at Kroger, prime at HEB. The ones by me both have pork butts as well.

You could also check Guys Meat Market or B&W Meat

If you are a KCBS member you can get a day pass at Restaurant depot. They usually have primes early in the week.
Also Pete's fine meats.
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.

+1 for restaurant depot. they have a decent selection and their prices are average.

HEB has pork butts for .97/lb right now but I think today is the last day for that sale.

Texas T Kobe was exactly what I was going to reply.
