Default Meat prices...

Just curious. What do you guys (and gals) pay for briskets, butts, and spares, and where do you get 'em? Let's call it research...

Let's see, briskets, normally 2.39-2.49/lb
Spares 1.99/lb
Butts - 1.49-1.69 (Sometimes I can pick them up for .99 on sale.)


Can't really comment on the rest since I only buy them on sale.

OK Chris, you're in my neck of the woods. Where do you usually shop? I love when Kroger has butts for .99 per pound, but they haven't been on sale in a while.

Paid $2.29 for select briskets Wednesday at a shop at Eastern Market (could have got choice for .20 per pound more, but liked the feel of the selects. Got a great deal on chicken leg quarters at my local market (.39 per # in 10 pound bags). Picked up 10 bags. Food saver worked overtime that day!

No it is Choice. Certified premium. Our meat prices jumped about a year and a half ago on Brisket, Flank steaks and all other steaks really. Butts and ribs haven't gone crazy.

UW Provisions in Madison.
Briskets are around $2.39 lb, and you have to call ahead a day in advance.
I bought 80 lbs of butts yesterday, case price was $1.19 I think. (otherwise $1.39 lb) Gotta call a day ahead for those too.
Spares are $1.99 lb.

For what it's worth, NE Kansas Dillon's stores are selling whole untrimmed choice briskets for $1.99/lb this weekend . . .
Hy-Vee has KC Strip Steaks (my favorite) for $6.99 for an eight ounce steak.
Not sure what the spares are lately.

At Walmart, brisket is $1.98 a pound. At my local butcher (Olde Towne Butcher) I get USDA Choice certified angus beef brisket for $2.99 a pound. Butts at the super market are $1.79 a pound. Free range high quality butts at Olde Towne Butcher is $1.89 per pound. Chicken is a little higher at OTB than supermarkets, but, you get what you pay for.

Tell me about it. Beef has doubled here, but I will say it's pretty good quality. Better than Walmart. We just don't have a lot of choices. It would be a dream to have some of those Brisket prices I'm reading on this thread. Lol
