Where can I find an uncooked "full point" beef brisket on line?

Just out of curiosity, why are you looking online instead of working with a local supermarket or butcher shop?

The online beef purveyors I've seen have generally been the high-end retailers like Lobel's, and they're not cheap!

What you're looking for is called a "Packer" brisket.

Meaning the flat and point are still attached.

Around here neither Sams nor Costco carry them.
But would you believe the Super Walmart does!?!

We have a butcher shop up the road that even has their own slaughterhouse
so I can order pretty much any primal I want with enough notice.

They're a bit higher but boy O boy is their product good.

The problem around here for something like a full brisket is that the big stores wont carry it and the stores that will bring one in will bring in an organic, hormone-free, antibiotic free brisket at between $7 - $9 per lb. Wait a second, from Lobels it's not much more http://www.lobels.com/store/item/usda-p ... risket.htm or http://www.lobels.com/store/item/natura ... risket.htm :roll:

Just make sure you don't get the one with the little seasoning packet in it.

Unless you want to make corned beef or fauxstrami...which wouldn't be the end of the world! :lol:

I haven't done a brisket yet this year. Maybe next weekend. I have, in the past, bought the packer from Super WalMart. They're not labeled angus or anything but are labeled choice.
My oldest stepson has a friend (lives not to far north of you Brad - up toward the Dells) that raises a couple head to butcher every year, usually toward the middle of October. I've got an order in for a packer when he does.
Used to have a husband/wife truck driving team that would run from the Atlanta area to Chicago metro. He was a trained butcher in another life and raised a few head of a small, forget the breed but it is indigenous to the southeast, cattle as a hobby. He also butchered some time in October and would bring me a few steaks, some hamburger, and a packer. Wish I still had contact with him. His beef was really good.
