    Why not? It's about the same price /lb for a full AAA packer at Costco (see first post).
    Superstore also had random chunks for $3.49/lb last week or the week before.

    Perhaps since I buy it rarely, I think the last time I got it from Sobeys it was ~42 for 5 lbs, some BBQ/Smoke houses sell it brisket for $30-$40/lbs

    Briskets at Sobeys and those places are usually around $20/kg. Even superstore would normally carry portion of Augus brisket for $19/kg. So ~$42 for 5lb sounds about right.

    Otherwise Costco is as cheap as it gets for ~$7/kg. Once in a blue moon they would actually have Prime grade brisket. Last time I got one was ~$9.50/kg. I'm waiting for that to happen again so I can stock up.

    Yep it was right... All the briskets were full sized from $45 to $55 bucks or so...

    Grass fed and grass finished beef is pricy in general, price seems off for what you’re getting

    Wah Hing is legit. We buy form them all the time. Never bought their brisket but we've bought wings, chicken feet, pig feet, pork belly, pork bone, beef bone, and ox tail from them.

    Quick update for Wah Hing:

    Ordered online, only payment method is "pay in store". Got to the store. Line up. Busy place.

    Got to the store, learned they don't even track online orders (or they were too busy), they just asked me to reorder at the counter. 5LBs of brisket turned into 8Lbs with a smiling "close enough!" from the lady at the counter. 5Lbs of pork belly became 6LBs, and 5LBs of drumettes became 7LBs.

    Close enough!

    The brisket is frozen, you're paying by the frozen weight. Pork belly is bone-in (doesn't that make it side ribs or spare ribs? I'm no butcher). Drumettes were large.

    Cash, packaging, and raw meat are handled by the same pair of gloves. Don't go here if you're squeamish of that. There was another lady trying to break apart a Clarke Griswold size bundle of frozen pork chops by smashing them on the ground (but she had a sheet of cardboard for food safety).

    How much was your brisket? If its still in the vac pack (and actually Black Angus?) i may be able to get over the chokeslamming of frozen pork chops on the ground at calgary's version of a wet market

    Thanks for this.
    That's not acceptable, particularly when they have likely upped their food handling game significantly due to this pesky pandemic that's in Month-11. Gross.
    And yeah, getting 40% over what you asked for or needed is also a no-go.

    Brisket was around $3/lb. The total order came to $52. They bag it all, weight it, type the price into a very low tech cash register. No discount for cash payment

    I probably could have objected and forced them to cut and reweight, but after waiting in line, I wasn't going to squabble over a $10 difference. At least I got the extra meat, vs being in Asia and just paying $10 more for the same amount cause of white tax.

    Food handling game not upped in any sense of the word. Don't go here for steak tartar.

    I will be cooking these over the coming weeks and reporting back. Unless I stop posting on beyond completely. Take that as very negative feedback on the quality of this meat.

    Sounds like a typical asian butcher shop. Perfect, haha.
