    I bought one corned beef point cut a week ago for $1.99lb and threw it in the freezer. There wasn't that many in the store and I was wondering because usually there is a large pile of them. As I went back to the store there still wasn't a huge pile of them but I bought another one yesterday. I could have counted how many were in the bin. Carrots were $0.99lb, red potatoes $2.99 for 5lb, and cabbage $0.69hd. So for about $10.70 I will be able to feed 6 people. And yes, I bought beer for the cooker which I will be starting in an hour or so. Hope you get your beef.

    I’m good. Actually scored a Round cut. Usually get Flat, which is also quite good but not on Round’s level.

    I got corned beef as my plan b. I got the flat cut because I'm the only one that prefers the extra fat in the point cut. Couldn't get ham butt. A nice fatty ham butt is my preference.

    Got two of 'em - planning to take some of the "extra" to our daughter, across town and the friend on my shared-meals program.

    It's a bit of a path to find the Irish roots, back to Shannon, but they're there.

    Peace - Deeve

    Never much cared for corn beef.
    I grew up thinking it was made from cows that were just fed corn..:confused:

    I looked and I have one point cut for today. I bought a flat cut earlier and threw it in the freezer for later. The round cut was almost twice the price per pound and I didn't like the last one we had, it was too lean if you will. Gotta save those bux now that I retired.

    Pretty much. Of course they had tons a few weeks ago. I knew it would be a gamble if I waited. Oh well. There's always next year! Actually, there's always like next month or whatever, since they have them at other times, too. Yay, Aldi.

    Got mine over the weekend, nothing special just 2 flat cuts, but it will get the job done. I keep meaning to make my own corned beef but never remember in time since it takes a good 7-10 days to brine the brisket.

    My father used to call corned beef and cabbage a New England boiled dinner, but I believe that term can include various kinds of meat (and usually turnips, I guess - which we never included).

    D.H.

    Can it? It pretty much always had corned beef as far as I ever saw.

    Among other places, I used to have it at the Rotary Club. My very elderly neighbor used to invite school kids to the club to share things like creative writing pieces, honors awards, sports ribbons and the like. He was the town historian, wrote a book. I got caught stealing his raspberries once, he was super nice about it. He just sat on his back porch smiling in the sun till I got tired of lying down hiding behind the prickly canes. I stood up after about half an hour and he just said, "You oughtn't do that."

    I picked up a 4lb. hunk on Monday. I have no idea what cut it is, and I don't really care. Even at its best, corned beef and cabbage is the worst meal of the year.

    Gotta keep the wife happy, though.

    I would love to try what you guys have for corned beef because ours is not so good. Pretty much looks like dog food, and might taste about the same.

    Edit i might be mixing corned beef and spam. Or are they the same thing ?

    Are you getting your "corned beef" from a can? Pretty close. Don't get it from a can.

    Next year make your own! You will need to start a week in advance but its easy and they are not nearly as salty as the wet packed ones you get from the grocery.

    $1.99 a pound at Big Y. Bought 6 of them so I could enjoy it year round, every two months or so.

    Actually, I always go back and buy another chunk of corned beef a few days after St. Patty's, just for more Reuben sandwiches and they always seem to be on sale with a new shipment.

    Pro tip. Just smoke a brisket. You can serve it with mushy cabbage if that’s your thing. In my house mushy is not served.
