Major grocery stores around me (Wegmans and Tops) have them off and on for $5/lb during the summer, but they only stock a few at a time. They go up to around $8-$9 in the colder months.

A place near me called Market in the Square has them year round for $3-ish.

An even smaller place that's on my route to work is where I've been getting them- they sell them all day long at around $2.80. Last trip I bought 1 to cook and one to freeze.

Jusy made a trek into one of 2 butcher shops in Melbourne that stocks Cape Grimm Beef.

A whole packer is $19.50 a kilo, so that's about 9 bucks a pound.

That sounds like a lot, but that Cape Grim is the closest thing to Wagyu you can get, perhaps even better considering Aussie Titch's recent Wagyu experiment.

Resurrected for 2014: PM me if you've posted grilling or smoking LAMB in QTalk!
Just remember... the standard has gone up. You Americans are getting good at LAMB!

The flats were so thin that I passed they would be jerky by the time they were done... I was kind of mad at Krogers...
