If you look at his original email, it says he paid $3.19 per pound for his loin back ribs (baby back). Just off the top of my head I would guess that to be around $6-$7 per rack. So no he was not getting 5x or 6x, more like 3x.

Ribs are generally going to be the lowest margin item on your menu.

Pyle - glad it was a hit! Looks like rib night is here to stay.
