Default Killer deal on butts

A friend of mine is a food salesman for a large company. He calls me Tuesday and says "pork butts are on sale but you have to buy a case". So I took the deal. 60 lbs to a case, 8 butts, 7.5 to 8 lbs each................. 70 cents a pound!!!! The problem I have now is I don't have enough room in the freezer so I have butts at three different friends house's until they see the smoke.

Eventually someone is going to call you to "get your butt out of their house" but until then you're good to go with a great score.

Smoke on!

If you can keep getting deals like that, the freezer will be paid for with the meat savings in no time.
