Louisville, KY area Krogers - BabyBack Ribs $1.99 per pound.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Just a heads up for anyone on here from the Louisville area.

 

It's their normal ribs in individual cryo packs.   Store I went to had a limit of 2 per person but we got creative with it.  Heard from someone else that their local Kroger didn't have a limit.     Stockpiled 20 racks in my freezer and thinking about picking up more.

 

Sale runs through tomorrow, while supplies last, yada, yada, yada.

You're so lucky!!!  Wish I could stock up like that, we never get those kind of sales around here.  Then again there isn't even a Kroger around :(

Kroger has been very nice to me over the past 2 months.  Boston Butt for $1.19 per pound, 1/2 loin boneless ribeye for $5.40 per pound and now this. 

 

Really funny thing is that I stocked up on 12 or 14 Butts but am already down to 2.  Grabbed 14  1/2 Ribeye loins and only have 3 left.    With the Ribeyes, I was a nice guy and divvied some out to others who hadn't gotten in on the sale.    Who knows how long these ribs will last.

Just a question I've had about Kroger meats. Most sales around here are a "select" grade. Is there a noticeable difference between "select" and " choice" ?

I've had some good luck at Kroger with some select cuts. Choice cuts have been better, but I haven't run into any shoe leather.

Last time I looked at Kroger the ribs were enhanced (packed in a salt solution)

Some think this makes them taste a bit hammy. YMMV.

Just a consideration.

Looked went up and picked up 4 more racks for tomorrow.  Checked the packaging, and yes, they are indeed inhanced.  That said, they've always come out being rather tasty.  Might be a case where non enhanced is "better", but enhanced is still more than acceptable.   @ $2 per pound, I'll live with it   icon14.gif
