where to buy whole brisket in L.A.?

LoRezSkyline | Jul 2, 2007 06:49 PM

so i'm planning on smoking my first brisket for the 4th, and i'm trying to find a flat cut brisket around at least 7-10 lbs. so it won't dry out during the cooking process! problem is, the people at the meat depts. of all the local supermarkets i've been calling around to have either barely spoken a word of english (jon's), been a 16-year-old incompetent kid without the patience to help me (ralph's) or only sell smaller pre-cut pieces of brisket around 2-3 lbs. (von's) that i know will end up tasting like dried-out beef jerky (blech...) after 8 hours on the grill. can anyone help? i've not called mayfair and whole foods yet, as i was hoping to avoid paying through the nose for it - but at this point, i just want to find a decent-sized cut of meat...

thank you in advance!!!
