I had planned to pick up a modest brisket for dinner. It turned out that the modest flat cut brisket was $5.08 per pound. The *whole* brisket was $2.48 per pound.
I loaded 14 pounds of whole brisket into the cart. Gretchen put it in the oven shortly after I got home and we had (part of) it for dinner. It was lovely.
We will be eating a lot of brisket for the next week. :)
