Default How much do you pay for your meat?

How much per pound do you pay for different cuts? I never really know what is a good deal.

Anything from a Flank Steak, Rib Eye to a Pork Butt.

Etc..

Don't limit it to just those cuts. I am curious about them all.

It's going to vary greatly based on location.

Here in Michigan and Indiana, just regular grocery store prices are roughly:

Butts: $2.79
Full spares: $2.99
Baby backs: $3.99
Packer brisket: $4.99
Ribeye steaks: $12.99
Beef tenderloin (whole) $14.99
Tri-tip: $5.99

Now keep in mind, those are grocery store prices here when not on sale. When there are sales there are usually some really good deals, especially on the pork products. Like $1.19 for butts or $1.49 for spares. But beef has just been downright expensive for the past year. And of course, prices are lower at the area wholesale clubs and sometimes Walmart, or if you buy by the case, etc.

Now if you're talking wholesale prices for restaurant, prices are quite a bit better. Even briskets at under $3/lb.

We've been pretty spoiled down here in Texas, whole packers go for $2.18 per pound (they ran on the Fourth of July week at $1.77), pork spares are around $2.97 (St Louis cut) and Top Sirloin goes for about $5.97. I got a picnic ham on sale for .99 cents per pound last December, it was a ten pounder and ran right at $10.00. I think that everyday price is right at $1.49 or so. The butts are a little more at $2.97 I think, not sure on that one it's been a while since I bought one. Our local grocery chain is HEB, they have some nice meat and good prices!

Those are really good prices for Southern California, especially in Anaheim! I lived there back in the seventies before everything got crazy expensive out there. Do you shop at Vaughns or do they even exist anymore?

Beef is up in our area. 800 pound steers are going for 1.75 per pound on the hoof at the auctions. Old cows are getting 1.00 per pound.

I'm having a hard time believing those prices. Here in GA it's almost double your high end price!

That's a pretty fair assessment of what's here pre-sale except reverse the tri-tip and rib eye prices.

Just head over to CostCo in Roseville and know you will always be getting a descent deal for the area.

I buy a 1/4 of a cow and 1 hog every year. More meat than we can eat in a year and it is usually maybe $400 total.
