I'll be plucking like a old hen before long,have gone to pork and yard bird. I know the drought has hurt but beef has gone out of sight thanks to the ethanol hiking corn prices. It's a joke. Diesel prices are down but food is getting higher. soap

I grew up on pulled pork in Arkansas. I never have caught on to brisket over pork. I'll eat brisket but it's not my favorite. I'm having leftover sliced pork loin tonight. It's $1.99 at Kroger about once a month. I keep an extra one in the freezer. I'll slice a few boneless pork chops off them and roast some.

yeah I refuse to spend 4.99 per pound. I love brisket, and would smoke one ever weekend if I could. With that said, as soon as I see them go on sale, I will be buying 3 or 4 of them.

I started making pulled pork about 3 years ago. Much better than brisket and cheaper now for sure. I only buy briskets for making into burger when I can get the on sale around a holiday. You have to remember that every carcass has only 2 briskets but they can have up to 30 ribeyes, 24 t-bones, 12 sirloins depending on how thick they are cut.

Do any of you know of another cut besides brisket that would get close to comparing?

There was once a shack in smithville that smoked a lot of different cuts of beef. I'd stop by every time I was in the area and get a T bone before it was done.

Chuck roast, but again, you're looking at ~$5/lb.

Paid $1.33 for some nearly out of date pork butts the other day, was quite happy. I've seen brisket (in Lubbock) recently for as little as $3.68, but that's still WAY to high.

To the guy above, corn prices are way down/ethanol production has little to do with the prices. The 2011-2014 drought that killed/led to massive herd reductions is much more to blame.
