Yikes!!! I picked up a picnic shoulder for 1.69/lb at the grocery store, but Costco was about 2.49/lb last I checked.

If you can subdue the murderous tendencies, and have not opened them yet.. bring em back and try another grocer.

I just got quoted at $3.49 and if i was willing to buy more then 1 then I could get it for $3.19CND. I think thats a easy decission since who couldn't use a spare briskett in the freezer?

I work on an AFB and I could have had 4 butts @1.10/lb on Tuesday but I waited until Friday to buy them and there were only 2 left. I looked everywhere and had to pay 2.49/lb for the other two. More than twice the cost, bummer.

I guess they should change Father's Day to "Pork Butt Day". Seems like there was a shortage all of a sudden.

Pork Butts at the local grocery (HEB) are going for 1.89/lb and picnics are 1.69/lb all day every day. Just got back from there a while ago, and there were 4 butts and 5 or 6 picnics on display. Probably more in back. They all looked great BTW, nice marbling on the butts especially.

SLS spares are 2.99/lb on sale, which IMO is a bit high.

Sam's is not as cheap as it used to be. I can get butts and briskets cheaper at Walmart. Which is kind of ironic if you think about it. To me Sam's is taking advantage of people. $2.49/lb is as High as I'll go. $2.09 ends up being about average. Anything under $1.90 around here is cheap now-a-days.
I totally feel your rage. I agree. Return them if you can.
