My Walmart only carries flats now for $6.98.

I think last price at restaurant depot in my area was $3.60 for choice. Or my wife's friend works for a food distributor and her cost is $4.00 for choice.

I don't mind paying the extra 40 cents a pound for my friend to get seeing depot is 45 mins away and always real busy. Saves me the hassle.

Two weeks ago it was 4.04/lb for angus and 3.84/lb for non angus choice at RD, $52-$54 for two 13lbers I bought, I cruised over to Wally and got two Excel choice ones for 2.98 or $45 for 15lbers. It's all ridiculous now.

2.79 at HEB the other day without a sale. Usually can find choice packers under $2 when the sales hit

I saw this at Sam's and thought it was packer but it says it flat for $6.77 /lb.

The $111 price tag was a little too rich for my weekend cook so I went next door to Walmart and got this one instead for $3.48 /lb for a total of around $47.
