Nobody had Corned Beef on sale here for St Patricks Day. It used to
be $.99/$1.29 10 for St Pats 10 years ago. I think we're (Central
Texas) being punished for sucking up all the beef brisket from the
U.S. other times of the year. Smoked and trimmed brisket packer
brisket here comes with a 1000%-1200% markup from BBQ trailers and
restaurants ($2/lb raw retail, $24/lb smoked).

Back in those days you could buy a whole brisket for $.89/pound.
Prices just aren't what they used to be.

And wages are higher, too. Food costs in general are quite low,
even if meat prices have increased a lot in the past few years.
