Thread Starter 

Hello all,


I plan to keep this thread updated with any deals/sales I run into in the South NJ area on meats, grill supplies, related craigslist stuff, etc. Feel free to contribute!


First up, Shop Rite has some decent sales this week (11/1/15-11/07/15) Find your circular at I'm interested in these:


Pork Spare Ribs - $2.49 per lb

Boneless NY Strip Steak - $5.99 per lb


Acme is typically overpriced, though deals pop up from time to time and I do pass through to look for manager's specials. Circulars at 10/30/15-11/5/15:


Lancaster Brand U.S.D.A. CHOICE Beef Boneless Shoulder or Chuck Roast - $3.99 per lb

Fresh Store Packaged Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast - $1.79 per lb


Thriftway/Shop N Bag at, 10/30/15-11/5/15:


Perdue Oven Stuffer Roasters - $.77 per lb with additional $15 purchase

Boneless Chicken Thighs - $1.28 per lb


Nothing amazing on craigslist at the moment, one of possible interest:


$400 Medium BGE in Berlin, NJ -


Also a couple weber kettles, cheapo smokers, etc.

I'll be grabbing some of the chicken sales this week, but we generally buy that at Wegmans. Their standard prices often beat the sales elsewhere:


Chicken Thighs (Bone In, Skin On) Family Pack - $.99 per lb

Boneless Chicken Breasts Family Pack (with rib meat) - $1.99 per lb


Pork Boston Butts are almost always $1.49 per lb there, though it seemed to be $1.29 last week. Not the greatest prices, but steady, and other markets can be higher outside of sales.


I never buy beef there. The prices are high and never go on sale.

Thanks for posting. Wegman's is always better than what I have seen in Shop-Rite, ACME and Stop-n-Shop on Butts the last several months. Lookin' for the $1.99 Spare Ribs S-n-S ran the week before July 4th. I got 4 racks, should have got more...JJ

I was planning to update this thread every Sunday or so, but I'm going to change it up a bit. First, there isn't always a noteable sale, and second, I imagine most of you are watching the ads anyway. So, I'll only be posting when I see what I consider to be a very good deal, or a great craigslist find.


Shop Rite has some OK stuff right now, not too crazy:


Boneless Chuck Roast - $3.84 LB


Acme is a joke this week. High sale prices, and their weird "buy one get one" non-deals.


Thriftway/Shop N Bag isn't much better. They do have one:


Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts - $1.77 LB


That said, my local Thriftway is a bit iffy. I grabbed the boneless thighs last week and they didn't seem to be the freshest. The store is always dead, I don't really know how they stay in business.


My Shop N Bag on the other hand is always busy, and has some interesting stuff and unusual cuts as they cater to a local hispanic population.

That Chuck is a good price. I need to get some, Thanks...JJ

I'm thinking about it! Will see how they look and what we want to have this week. Freezer space is an issue here, so I can't go too crazy.


What I'm watching for is Acme to run a special on Lancaster Brand fresh steaks in the case. Last Nov or Dec they had gorgeous NY Strips for $5.99 a lb, about 1.5-2" thick. I walked up and said "I'll take all of them please." OK, there were only 5 in the case, but still, felt pretty awesome to say that.

I'm not sure if this is state-wide, but Whole Foods in Cherry Hill has air-chilled chicken wings on sale for $1.99 a lb. Not exactly the deal of a lifetime, but not the worst either especially for the quality. Drums and flats only, so there's no waste either.

Hi All Was in my Shoprite/Paramus today to pick up some spares, thought I'll also do some wings..then I saw the price of the wings $3.99 lb.

Full spares $2.68 lb.
