Butts by the case

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have to cook for two pretty large fundraisers coming up soon. (1 jambalaya and 1 pp sandwich)  where I 'm going to need a massive amount of pork butts.  Someone told me today that Sam's has butts by the case for $1.69lb.  Has anyone ever bought these before?  I assume they are the standard 2 to a bundle vac pac butts?  Also, does anyone have any idea how many are in a case?

I would just call your local Sam's club for pricing and availability.

I have bought butts from Sam's alot and some of them have good meat but some don't. We have 6-7 here in Jax, FL and I would only buy meat from 2 of them. Now if you have a Restaurant Depot in your town they have butts fro 1.29lb last week when we bought about 700lb or so.

Our Sam's has them for $1.39 by the case. They are very good. Wish we had a restaurant Depot here.  icon_cry.gif

Sam's here is higher than most of the associated grocers .

 They used to be the best price here  but not anymore

Costco beats Sam's up here on meat prices by about 15 cents a pound.  Only thing is that Costco butts have had the bone removed, so if you prefer bone in then you have to go elsewhere.

Smoktogeaux,yes the Butts come 3 pkgs. of 2 Butts in eachyahoo.gifSame as the Spares,cost here in Toledo is $1.68/lb. last I looked.Funny thing though, Sam's sells Flats only for $2.59/lb. and Wally World (just behind the Sam's) only have Packers for $1.89/lb.icon_eek.gif

You have a local butcher in your area? I would start by asking they for quantity may be pleasantly surprised with the freshness...quality and price.

Or possibly ask the owner of your fav Mexican restaurant you frequent if he could order you a case from his restaurant supply vendor. They often get special pricing since they go through a lot of pork
