Default Price Comparison

Hey buds - just paid $ 2.39/lb for spares and $ 1.99/lb for a bone-in butt at BJ's. How do these prices rate vs. what you guys pay in your locality. I'm just south of Boston, MA. Thanks in advance for your input.

We still see sales for butts and spares for $1.99/lb around here. Pork is still reasonable, but beef is out of sight.

I work for a food distributor and we are selling butts at 1.35, shoulder is running 1.24. If you call up a local distributor you can pick up from their will call area, but secret is you get a sales rep to set up your account and then place orders through them with better pricing.

Checked this morning at the local grocer. Getting ready to cook 6-10 Butts and rib racks for friends and employees Christmas presents.

$1.79 Bone In Butts
$1.97 Spares

I may call Sams but the closest is an hour and a half away. Doubt it will be worth it.

Appreciate the input guys, thanks. I figured that pricing would be a tad higher here in New England. Now that I know that I'm high, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for weekly specials.
