Our local market was advertising pork spare ribs for $1.38/lb. I went in to look... the smallest rack was almost 18 lbs. Just about 25 bucks. Sam's club is usually about $2.99/lb. here for nice spares.

Yesterday was the first time I purchased meat from RD. I had seen the case price which was .20 cheaper in their flyer and I was thinking you had to buy a whole case. I had called them and they said 6 packs came in a case. When I got there I noticed the sign said for 26+ pounds you got the discount, so it wasn't a case as in what I was thinking, I just bought 3 packs making sure they totaled 26+ pounds. Noticed brisket was the same way but you had to buy 48+ pounds.

In Texas at Sam's Club they sell Spare ribs cryo'd three racks to the cryo, they sell them for 2.58 a pound. I typically have pretty good returns on these ribs, although a couple of times I noticed the middle one wasn't as pretty as the two outside. Meaty ribs in either event though, I gobble them right down.

Paid $6.17 for a rack of trimmed spares at Target today, they're "enhanced" so they'll probably taste like crap but I couldn't resist the price for over 3 3/4 lbs of ribs.

The Price Rite here has spares for $1.99/lb. Not sure if that's a sale price or not because every time I go there, that seems to be the price. Unfortunately, I prefer the BBs. They normally go for about $2.99/lb.
