Hey everyone, Just curious as to the meat prices in your area. I live in a rural area, Craig County, VA which is just north of Roanoke. We have a family owned IGA grocery in our town, New Castle, they cut their own and have a good selection of fresh, quality meats. I just bought a pork picnic half (skin on) 4.62 lbs. for $0.98 per pound or $4.53 and bought two packs of large pork spare ribs weighing about 3.5 lbs each for $0.78 per pound or $ 2.75 each. They had Boston butts for $1.99 per lbs. I'm still in the experimenting stage (do you ever get out of it ) of this smoking bug so I'm sticking to the cheaper cuts for now! Anyway just wondering about meat prices in your areas, thanks. Sammy.
