Where to buy inexpensive brisket to make corned beef?

thursday | Mar 2, 2012 09:24 PM

I thought I'd corn my own beef this year since I can't have nitrates or dyes and actually remembered in time for St. Patrick's for a change! But so far the only briskets I've seen for sale are going for $5.99/lb. Considering I can buy it pre-brined from Whole Foods for that price, and the whole point of corning was to make edible a cheap cut, it seems quite steep. I've gotten ribeyes on sale for cheaper. Anyone know of any good sales or stores? Preferably somewhere between Pasadena and Van Nuys as the 134/101 are my (horribly long) commuting grounds.
