Hurricane Beryl's fury has come and gone- leaving millions of Texans without power and some paying the ultimate sacrifice.

It's during these difficult times that many of us look for a silver lining and, while it may not mean much, H-E-B is giving Texans a bit of hope in the storm's aftermath.

No matter what you may have heard, H-E-B, the number one grocery store in Texas, is not putting a limit on brisket!


Posts circulating online seemed to suggest that H-E-B imposed a limit on brisket sales during hurricane preparations; it made many people uneasy at the thought of only being allowed two briskets per person!

It's definitely a bold choice to limit brisket sales- mainly because that's what I hear is a big seller! I, if you'll remember, have never been to an H-E-B because they refuse to come to El Paso- but I hear great things, especially about that brisket!

But, fear not, many pointed out that the post on brisket limits was actually from 2020! During the start of the pandemic, when many people were stockpiling and panic buying products, H-E-B imposed a limit on brisket.

However, H-E-B has insisted that there are currently no limits on brisket sales during hurricane watch! Which is kind the most Texan thing I have ever heard, or as someone in the comments said:

You ain’t a real Texan unless you smoking a brisket in a hurricane

So, go forth and smoke brisket from H-E-B, fellow Texans- and if you happen to pass by El Paso- please send me some!
