    I was at HD yesterday. Traeger has taken over what used to be prime Weber spots. RO lump is gone replaced by Traeger pellets and the K area is reduced to a pallet in the aisle.

    Yeah, that is why i replied. Brisket used to be cheap. Then Costco was selling prime packers at 3 and 4 and change for choice flats. Now they rarely have packers (actually told they were phasing them out, but have since seen them) and the flats have gone up to a price not worth paying.
    I do not want a permanent price increase. Similar things have happened. Any single-malt Scotch drinkers here? Of course there are. Remember the prices before 1993? Started to get popular. Then the ad made it mainstream. Now it is one of the in-thing to do. Anybody remember what the prices used to be?

    We might be a victim of our own success. At the expense of money and effort. Boycott?

    Good to know that it’s just chuck. When I see it in the store, it’s like in steak form rather than a large roast.

    Totally off topic but I remember back in college my roomate and I bought a cheap grill and decided to cook some steaks. I bought a cheap sirloin but my roomate wanted to go even cheaper and bought a chuck roast and tried to grill it. Watching him try to chew through that thing is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

    Choice brisket is $6.50/lb at my Costco in Charleston, SC.....that’s insane! A year ago Prime was around $3/lb. Thank you rookie pellet smokers

    I was at the south StL county Costco today, and Prime packer whole briskets were $3.59/lb.
    Gasoline was $2.11/gal.
