99 cent "whole pork butts" at Kroger

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Just saw it in the flyer in the mail yesterday. Don't know if the sale has already started or not, but time to stock up. I typically don't shop at Kroger at all, but cryo'd (assuming) pork butts are pretty much the same everywhere (at least in my experience).

I also saw this.  I hope to pick at least one up this weekend.

if I didn't have 4 more in my freezer already I'd pick up another... then again, I wouldn't have to thaw one to make one this weekend..... or maybe some kielbasa...... hmmm...

Thanks for the heads up MSUICEMAN.  I got two yesterday and will get two more today.

I would lose my mine if I saw 99c butts.  The cart would not be big enough.  No Krogers in Mass.

btw, Meijer had them marked for 1.19/lb which aint too shabby either. so if you are in an area without a Kroger but with a Meijer (I know, its mostly Michigan with a few exceptions in northern Ohio, maybe Indiana) ya still have some cheap shoulders in your area.

Looks like pork prices are coming down, just like that article said.  $1 butts here we come!

$0.99 at the Ann Arbor Meijer on Zeeb road. I think it was advertised in the ad at $1.19.

in our area, pork is very cheap. I am surprised by what some people around the country pay. beef isn't too bad either though some cuts tend to be pricey compared to other areas in the country (though this is changing), and lamb is relatively cheap, as Detroit has some large slaughterhouses for local lamb, and a large ethnic population that draws in lamb from all over.

 

for whatever reason chicken is VERY inexpensive here, many times getting quarters for .39 or .49/lb. drums almost always are somewhere for .99 or cheaper.

 

now, seafood on the otherhand.... pricey. even some of our local seafood is pricey (walleye, perch, and whitefish) most times of the year.

Man I gotta get cooking. I got 2 or 3 in my freezer already. Maybe I should learn how to make sausage?

its not that hard humdinger, and for 99/lb its a cheap intro. I mix pork and beef for my kielbasa (both fresh and smoked).

Yeah I need to find the time too. Everytime I turn around when I'm at home I have a wife, 5 year old, 1 year old, and dog staring up at me wondering where I'm going next! lurk.gif

I hear ya. I have a 5.5 year old and a 4 month old... and a boat and job that likes to send me places around the country.... I literally squeeze bbq between dinner parties (and sometimes during if its close enough that I can scoot out for a couple minutes to check here and there), sometimes overnight smokes during the weekend, and my wife and I are huge Spartan fans, so we throw a party or two a year to watch away games at my house, so I BBQ for those pretty much unobstructed.

 

lately I've been doing smoke/grilling to things like chicken and prime rib. both of which turned out wonderful (the chicken may have been the best chicken I've ever had to be honest).
