    Default Price of corned beef and/or brisket

    Took mom to Wallyworld yesterday. I was hoping to score a good deal on
    corned beef, it being so close to St Patrick's Day, but was shocked into
    disbelief when I saw the prices: $3.48lb for corned beef and $3.86lb for
    "boneless" brisket! Well, screw that. I've never paid more than $2lb
    during St Pat's corned beef sale days. And what the Hell is "boneless"
    brisket? I've yet to see a bone-in brisket. What's with these insane meat
    prices? Gas is at the lowest in 4 yrs.

    What kinda uncooked corned beef prices prices are you folks seeing?

    Never buy brisket "flat" cuts. They always way overpriced.

    Buy the larger "packer cut". It contains both the point and the
    flat cut. Make corned beef out of the flat and stew or ground
    beef out of the point.

    Vons/Albertsons both came out this week with $0.99/lb point cut, loss
    leader I guess, $2.50/lb for flat cut.

    Currently Safeway has corned beef for $1.79/lb.

    Raleys, has it for $2.47/lb, or you can step up to round for $3.47/lb.
    They also have Black Angus and it's $3.77 and $3.97 for round.

    I happen to like Angus, so that price is okay with me. Whether I do a
    corned beef this year remains to be seen. I think we have a brisket or
    two in the freezer still.

    I haven't seen anything under $3/lb for quite a while. A couple years
    agot he local Randall's (Safeway) had it for about $2/lb on sale St. Pats
    day week. And the stuff lasts so long that it doesn't even go on sale
    after St Pat's day when they're overstocked.

    If you start corning a flat of regular brisket tonight, it'll be ready by
    St Pats day.

    If you buy any beef at WalMart it's corned beef. They inject their meats
    with salt solution. UGH!

    What's the difference if WalMart does it at the store or I brine it at
    home? Brining pork and poultry is ALWAYS done in my kitchen.

    This is my favorite brine mix!!

    @@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

    Mark Peel's Brine

    marinade

    2/3 cup salt
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup black pepper, cracked
    1 pinch thyme, dried
    13 cloves
    13 allspice, cracked
    3 bay leaves
    13 juniper berries, crushed
    1 water

    Combine salt, sugar, pepper, thyme, cloves allspice, bay leaves and
    juniper berries in saucepan. Add 1 quart water and bring to boil.
    Simmer 5 minutes, then add 1 gallon cold water. Chill thoroughly
    before using brine.

    Makes about 1 1/4 gallon brine.... enough for a 12 to 14 pound
    turkey.

    The spicing is very faint, mostly you taste the salt and a bit of the
    sugar. It's a bit like a very elegant version of commercial smoked
    turkey, only without the smoke. A couple of dashes of liquid smoke
    might
    be nice also. Peel also used this recipe for roast pork and smoked.
    fish.
    For a pork loin, cut all the amounts by half. for fish or chops, cut
    them
    to 1/4.

    Yield: 1 servings

    Except corned beef isn't simply brined. It's more like pickled.

    St. Louis are prices are:
    Point-cut $1.59/lbs
    Flat-cut $2.89/lbs
    Round $3.19/lbs

    One store's ads do not list a price, simply stating they will not be
    undersold by the competition.

    Here in the boondocks of WA it is on sale for $1.99. Just cooked some
    and is great! 2 1/2 hrs simmering then potatoes, carrots & cabbage in
    the cooking water with a bit of lemon juice to keep the cabbage green.

    'Zactly. And the best is dry cured like how gravlox is cured. Corning is a
    relatively lengthy,
    laborious, expensive process, often at an expense greater than the price at
    which the beef could sell raw. And unlike how injecting saline increases
    salable weight, corning extracts significant moisture and so reduces the net
    salable weight. Corning makes meat a delicacy, and at the same time
    increases its price... like how you can buy fresh salmon for like $7/lb but
    when that same salmon is made into lox it costs close to $20lb.

    I don't know why folks buy that saline injected fresh meat... only reason I
    can come up with is low IQ.

    I paid $1.49/lb for the house brand point cut at Safeway in Hawaii. I
    got 2 pieces but one of them is a big ugly piece that's mostly fat.
    Uggggh, that's what I get for carelessly grabbing a hunk of meat and
    dumping it into the shopping cart! I'm boiling both of them but that
    piece deserves special treatment. Hopefully, boiling and roasting and a
    whole lot of barbecue sauce will help disguise it's shortcomings. I'm
    not expecting much though.

    Prices are what YOUR market will bear. I know that New York City
    will have higher prices than Jackson MS....but that won't compel me to
    move.

    Comparing prices between cities doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If
    your city is 10 cents more than I pay...what am I suppose to
    do...gloat?

    I'm going out to look for a corned beef brisket today or tomorrow. I
    don't recall what I paid for it last year but I made one in December and
    IIRC it right at $3/lb but it wasn't on sale.

    I'll be checking at Sam's Club.

    I don't buy corned beef, but I've been seeing brisket ostensibly "$2/lb off"
    for $3.99/lb. I normally don't pay more than about $3.49/lb for brisket at
    the most, and I don't think I've EVER seen it priced at $5.99/lb, which they
    imply is the "normal" price.
