prices for ribs
 
Hi guys

I am new to the US and have been looking at prices of ribs since arriving 3 weeks ago. For winter is $13 high for a rack of spares? that is the average price I could find in the supermarkets here in Reno.

I am imagining that the price will be lower in the summer?

thanks.

You have to tell us how big the rack is, really meaty spares that might be a good price. really small trimmed ones that might be expensive.

You are better off giving the price/lb. Right now, in KC, a couple stores are running sales on spares @ $1.99/lb which seems to be decent for this time of year IMO.

I will get the prices for you :-) going to be picking up a couple of racks for dinner.

At the local grocery store here they're $6.99/lb. :shock: :crazy: At BJ's or Costco it's normally $3.49/lb and $2.99/lb on special.

I've been getting untrimmed spare ribs for $2.49 a pound and baby backs for $3.99 a pound.

Right now here in NJ, two local butchers have them on special at $1.99 a pound for pork spare ribs (not Baby Backs).

I just bought 2 cases for Superbowl Sunday.

Seems like its a bit higher in the winter here in Michigan. Right now its $2.49/lbs for spare, and $4.69/lbs for baby back. I buy from a meat counter, rather than packaged slabs, however, I would imagine your package should have a lbs breakdown.

in New Zealand I was paying $6.35 for scrawny ribs, some of them were even shiners.

I usually get them at the Reno Costco and they are usually $2.79 - $2.99 lb for spares.

What are lamb prices there? I recently paid $8.48 US for lamb loin chops.

Edit: $6.35 NZD would be $5.36 USD at today's exchange rate. $8.48 USD => $10.04 NZD

Lamb is actually cheaper in USA than it is in New Zealand AND the quality of lamb is better in the US.

New Zealand gives all its good meat to the international market and keeps the crap stuff which it sells for a premium.

$2.89/lb for baby backs here - Sam's and RD.
