Sure doesn't seem like it. What is the price per pound?

I bet that box is around 10lbs, so it is around $4 a pound which is not bad for around here.

$4/lb for spares? At the Lunardi's down here they are always around $2/lb - but they are "all natural" shipped in from Iowa so I pass.


Back on topic:
For non-hippy meat $1-$3/lb is pretty normal in CA (sale price to full price at supermarkets) for Spare ribs (not St. Louis cut) but if you're a regular with the butcher they'll sometimes do a trim and sell them at the spares price

I can get two racks of Spares for around $15 at Costco (untrimmed). So, you could get six racks of spares for around $45. My thought is that 5 racks of trimmed and cut St. Louis style, sounds about right.

I just picked up some trimmed spares at Sams club for $1.97/lb. They come 3 racks per cryo. So like 6 racks cost me right around $30. They didn't charge more for already being trimmed which I liked. My trimmings usually end up going to waste so this was good.
