Tomorrow i was about to go to Luling for brisket. just for grins i called them to check on the price because a friend of mine wanted a pound and i wasnt sure how much it was there.

WELL ! i called and i got the anwer ! and BOY were they tenative about it too..... they almost didnt want to answer. HA ! and NOW i see why ! i coud hear it in the voice.

so i asked..... when did the price change...... and she kept being evasive about it.
finally she told me 6 months ago.

the last time i was there i only got a half pound and didnt even bother to check the price because i was in a hurry to get home... so i didnt realize it had gone up. i thought it was kind of high but i thought i was imagining things. lol

COME ON !......$13.35 a pound? when there are SO many good places that dont even come close to that kind of price. ... or do they? maybe i'm wrong.

what are they tryin to do here? are they chasin the tourist dollar?
i mean luling is GREAT but WOW !
ON PRINCIPLE ! ....i am NOT payin THAT kind of money for good BBQ when i can go somewhere else and get it just as good for less.

am i crazy or what?
$13.35 is insane..... thats just not right.

tomorrow i am goin for brisket..... BUT NOT to Luling !
