Most frigerated corned beef has a date stamp of 8-12 months out from

I've never seen it under $3.99 per pound here. GRRRRRRRRR

Don't recall what I paid but not cheap. In CT it was always a
promotional item for St. Pats and very cheap. Spend $20 and it was $1.09

Last week I bought a packer cut brisket and it was $3.89 and another
store had the trimmed flat for $7.99
