Anyone ever shopped at Reids?

Reid's is owned by the same people as Food Lion and we have one in Cayce, SC.  They always have great meat specials.  They have Butt for $1.29/lb.  Any experience with quality?

Does it say on the package the packer, such as Tyson?  Most butts are 6-8 lbs in size which is in the right poundage range for tender pork.  Are they cryovac'd, 1 or 2 per pkg?  If not COV, make sure they aren't cut down, 4 lbs or less - most the bone-in slices have been removed and all you are left with is the heel, the wastied part.  Fiesta does that and you pay as much per lb for a heel as anyone else charges for the whole butt.

Thanks for the reply.  I picked up 2-2 packs yesterday.  They were COV with a Smithfield label and were $1.27/lb.  Most of the two-packs were 11-13 lbs.  I got two 12 lb packs but it looked like it might have a 7 and a 5 pounder if that makes sense. I'll smoke 3 of them and use the other to grind up with venison for sausage.  So based on what you said, I should smoke the larger ones?
