Barbecue restaurants deal with smokin brisket costs
But, make no mistake, the pandemic has butchered the barbecue business with low and slow revenue and beefed-up costs. Do the math and you can see brisket prices are eating their lunch. As a result, many restaurants are passing along at least some of their increase to customers by way of select upcharges or menu price changes. Until beef prices stabilize, higher menu prices may be a necessity for a growing number of restaurants that serve up the Texas tradition. I heard of places around the state may be taking brisket off the menu, Peacock said.
