Packer trim whole brisket on sale for .99/lb.
I'll probably buy 4 of them. Plan to run one through the meat grinder and cut the lean parts of one into stew meat and, of course, there's the smoker for one of them.

Any other suggestions for using brisket?

1. They make a great pot roast

Make sure you trim the top then just do the standard pack of onion soup mix and liquid. (I use half wine and half water) Cover tightly with aluminum foil and braise away in the oven. Do this the day before you serve it. Slice it when it is cold and warm in the reduced braising liquid.

Brisket will make a great burger! It also makes a great chili. I am jealous!

3. Check your local sales listings
Lots of places have them on sale because of the 4th of July weekend. My local Kroger has them for 99 cents also.

4. I came up with another application. Corned beef. I have 4 pounds
brining in the garage 'fridge. Ground 4 pounds into burger and have a 7 pound piece dry rubbed for the smoker tomorrow. That's just one 15 pound brisket. Thank you God for Food Saver!

I've ordered the sausage fittings for the meat grinder and will do some link sausage as well. Recipes welcome!

5. You might like this one.
This one only takes about 4 to 5 hours total.

7. Wow. You can't hardly find ANY beef of any kind here for under $3/lb
ON SALE anymore. Regular prices for "cheap" cuts seem to be $4/lb and up.
