USDA Grading Wed, 07/8/09 1:08 PM (permalink)
I originally added this to a post in the recipes section, but I think this is more appropriate. I understand the USDA Grading for Prime, Choice, Select, etc, etc, etc

I was in Sam's Club the other morning and wanted to buy a brisket (last week I was able to buy a piece marked Prime). This week all the pieces of brisket, which are all cryovacked, have the Certified Angus logo and then also USDA Certified Program and no other markings.

Does anyone have a clue what the grade might be? The prices are the same whether it was the Prime piece or the not-graded one. The pieces I saw today had a good fat cap and the underside had plenty of marbling along with a little extra fat.

Thanks for all input.
