Default Farkin Beef prices

So I've moved to Eau Claire and this was the first I needed to buy ground beef in a while. Went to local grocery store chain. Nice choices, regular, ground chuck and ground sirloin. My bride say grab some of the chuck. 4.79 a lb
Plain ground beef was 4.29

BUT sirloin roasts were 3.98 and my wife found some chuckies for 3.09.
Bought the chuckies because I have a meat grinder

Was used to Costco frozen chubs for about 2.10 a lb last time I bought

Nice thinking, go figure the ground costs more than the whole muscle

I think we are all feeling the pinch. Beef brisket (packer), angus is $4.90/lb! I've done one brisket this year and may only do one or two more if the prices don't come down. Paying almost $60 for a brisket is insane in my opinion.

We are in for a rough summer for meat pricing. We have the drought out in the West and the pig disease killing all the little ones. Scary stuff.

I'll say, a freezer is looking mighty tempting, just to take advantage should a good price come along

I just picked up two real nice cab briskets Friday at 3.29, down from 3.99 a few weeks ago.

That is a crazy price on ground. I walked out of the store yesterday in total protest over paying $4.08/lb for ground. I didn't even bother looking at anything else. I just grabbed, cursed and walked. Needless to say, the burgers alone I cooked last night were $20....
