May I ask where?

I picked up 13 lbs at Walmart as an impulse buy for 2.99/lbs today. I've paid slightly more for choice.

Good sources are hard to come buy, if you don't mind sharing.

I was at my Wal-Mart and they haven't carried full packers in a while. All they had was flats for $6.50 a pound. I use to get packers at Wal-Mart for $2.35 a pound.

I think they are high on drugs. Why don't they just charge an arbitrary amount of .. let's say.. $9.99 /lb. That sounds good!

I agree. I don't thing so either. What's the world coming to paying that much for brisket?

I guess this was the right year for this diet. Mostly because I'm eating less overall, now I don't cook briskest or butts anymore because it makes so much food which tends to make me have larger servings. What I do have is lean meat, though, fish or chicken, and while prices are up I'm not buying a lot, either...so I take that hit.

These prices might just make these healthier choices go long term!



Ow!

I will tell you but...

remember a while back when you were bragging about your butcher and when I asked who he was you would not tell anyone?

I get them at RD

Pork is the same too... Wegman's just raised their bone-in Butt price $.40 / lb.

Belly prices have gone through the roof.

I wanted to smoke 2 butts and a full packer this weekend but I'm not going to spend $100 for 3 pieces of meat.

I'll probably end up getting the 2 butts, a family pack of Italian snausages and some chicken quarters / halves for this weekend.

I'm heading to RD today to pick up a couple of briskets. I hope their prices haven't moved too far in that direction yet.

Hope I didn't offend, I wasn't attempting to trivialize this problem. As a matter of fact, I live in the heart of the Flint Hills of Kansas, which is very much cattle country. So, yes, I do have a clue. Many of my congregants are ranchers, and I know too well how the theft or demise of even a single calf hurts them - financially and emotionally. And, yes, cattle theft occurs here, frequently, often by the trailer load. It is not a crime localized just to the boarder.

So, please accept my apologies if I remodeled the old "Lucky the Pig" joke a bit. It was just in fun.
