    [snip brine mix]

    Well then, why don't you give your preferred brine mix to Walmart so they
    can use your brine before they sell it back to you?

    You can't brine pre-brined meat. At least not effectively.

    I went to Vons today to buy the corned beef pont at $.99. The butcher
    said they sold out the first day the ad appeared and when they ordered
    more it was recalled. He didn't know why it was recalled. I paid
    $2.69 per pound with the Vons Card for the brisket. Without the card
    it was $3.69.

    Purchased my limit - :-)

    Because of the population, California is a very competitive marketplace.

    Because they don't brine it they add a preservative and water in order
    to sell you the water for the price of the meat. And the preservative
    allows it to sit on the shelf for a really long time.

    Exactly. First of all, I like to prepare my own food if I'm buying
    a piece of meat. If I wanted prepared food, I'd go to the
    freezer section or the prepared food section. If I buy a steak,
    that's what I expect, just a steak. Second, I don't appreciate
    them adding 20% of water by weight so I can pay $5 a pound
    for it.

    Bad enough they do that to pork, it would really annoy me if I
    found them doing that to beef. People shopping at WalMart
    don't seem to know what they're buying. Why would I shop
    at a sneaky store like that if I have a choice.

    I bought two "Buckley Farms" approximate 4 lb. flat cuts at Raley's
    today (3/14) for $1.99 per pound. Both are freeze or use by May 18th.

    Nathan's charges that for their stuff. And they can keep it too.
