Corned Beef Brisket
updated: May 05, 2014, 4:11 PM

I want to try making corned beef at home but I can't find a brisket. Anyone know where I can find brisket locally?

Literally at every grocery store in Santa Barbara (except maybe Foodland). They come either unseasoned or prebrined.

I would try Shalhoob Meat Company or Country Catering and Meat Market, or maybe Gelsons.

Whole Foods, possibly.
Maybe check CostCo too.

On the rare occasions when Ralphs is out of brisket, I buy mine at Gelson's. Gelson's, of course, is a tad pricier, but the butcher will cut any size you want. Yay, Gelson's!

No where in SB sells a fully intact beef brisket without a special order. The places above only sell the highly trimmed flat cut portions.

Sorry to thread highjack, but does anyone know where you can get bacon sliced to preferred thickness? Most stores even the higher end one buy it in presliced.

Costco has good brisket.

Another vote for Gelson's! You get what you pay for.

Albertsons quite often has brisket, look for flat or round cut, avoid the point, I have always wanted to try my own corning. Albertsons will also slice bacon thick at the meat counter, please use some of it to wrap your corned beef with it before cooking, adds more layers to the flavor.

Yes all the markets usually carry it and they come already brined with a small seasoning packet. DO NOT buy the round cut, only the flat cut and I would suggest you add some halved onions, a little garlic, some bay leaves and two bottles of dark beer to the pot and simmer it for one hour more than suggested. Take it out of the pot when done, put it on a platter, wrap in aluminum foil, let it cool overnight in the fridge, slice it cold (cross cut, do not cut with the grain) and then either warm in the oven or make a great reuben sandwich in a frying pan. I make corned beef briskets about every three months, nothing better! Enjoy

I saw a square cut brisket at the Santa Barbara Public Market this weekend - not sure about price comparisons to other grocery stores...

714P...that's not making corned beef brisket....that's fancying up pouch meat.... Don't get me wrong...you might be on to something ...

I think the OP wanted to literally brine and spice an untreated brisket....and I also think the OP got some good direction here,

Gelson's usually has it. Sometimes Costco does.

America's Test Kitchen has a simple and tasty no-nitrate dry-brine recipe online, which I use. It comes out very flavorful, without chemicals, and not so terribly salty. Takes about 2 weeks, with flipping every couple of days. You can find other recipes at chowhound.com. The finished meat cooks brown just as roast beef does and has the wonderful flavor and texture of traditional corned beef.

691 Whole Foods. I am from the U.K. and I like my bacon thick, with sausages, tomatoes, and fried eggs. Enjoy :)

A second for Shalhoob's. I bought brisket recently. I only needed small one: they were very helpful in fulfilling my request. And it was delicious.

The Fresh Market where the old Scolari's used to be on Milpas at Montecito St. has fully trimmed fresh brisket in it's meat case every day for under $6,00 a pound. It's the best brisket in Santa Barbara.

Shalhoob has brisket for 4.49 lb and thick cut bacon. We buy all our meats from them!

Did you try Lazy Acres? Fresh Market has awsome meat counters, don't hesitate to ask your butcher to order one the size you want! Martha Stewart just did a show on making your own, have fun and enjoy making your own it's delicious stuff!
