About a month ago I got a call from Big Al saying he had heard because of the drought that beef prices were going to go up, so I called my butcher to put in an order for some briskets to stock the freezer. I told the woman who answered the phone what I was looking for - had been paying $3.35 / pound for prime beef - a steal in this neck of the woods. She asked me if I was sure... the price had gone up.. so I asked... how much? $4.49/ pound when she could get them. Over a buck a pound over night. Hope this drought ends soon and we get back to normal. I will pay $4.49 occasionally for prime beef, but not $4.99 for choice. And I would bet you anything these are not packers.
