Need quality beef brisket for smoking and for chili

classacts | May 3, 2012 02:35 PM

I need to pick up 30lbs+ of good quality beef brisket for a cookout in the next few weeks and I'm reaching out to my fellow NYC CHers for their opinions and recommendations.

Costco has very good prices on brisket, WF sells it for at least 2-3X as much per lb. I have heard Stew Leonards has some of the best quality beef for a relatively good price (although I did find an article to the contrary here on CH). I guess the first thing is, when smoking brisket low and slow for so long and putting it in chili, I'm guessing the difference between Costco vs a high end cut costing 2-5X as much won't make too much of a difference. Where would you CHers recommend I try to get this amount of brisket without breaking the bank?
