The package on the left was $12.+ and the one on the right was $9.+ origianally.
Since I got my smoker in May the first thing I wanted to do was some deli style turkey breast for sammies for Carol's lunch. I have looked, and looked, no deals since, until tonight.
Now I know I have it bad. I stopped at Krogers tonight for nothing, but to check out the meat counter. So, what do I see? 2 packages, 4 turkey breasts, bone in, skin on, and it said Managers Special on them price $1.99, reduced from $3.29. I was tempted but walked away. I spotted the manager that I just met last week and struck up a conversation with him. The last time I talked to him I mentioned the words "smoking meats." he said he did some in the past. I said I saw those turkey breasts over there, and asked if that was a good deal. He said if you are interested I'll mark them down. I said ok and got a package, not knowing what the final price would be. He came back and I didn't look, and we started talking about my MES and smoking. I finally looked down and he marked them down another dollar. Holy **** batman. I started getting the shakes and said on second thought, I'll take the other also. He marked that down also.
We continued talking about smoking and I couldn't wait to check out.
I swear when I checked out, I think I was trembling getting my debit card out. I kept waiting for someone to stop me and say there was a mistake.
When I got home and calculated it out, I got 11.35 pounds @ 3.29 = 37.34 for 11.24 WOW that is a score. I guess it pays to snoop even when you don't need anything.
Now, this may sound a little dramatic, but that is how I felt.
This smokin' thing is very adidictive.
I guess you know what I'll be smoking tomorrow.
Oh, the end of the pot roast for last nights dinner.
I still have to make a plan, but yes, I'll be dry curing for lunch meat, the kind that costs a fortune in the delis.
Thanks for watching, and wish me luck.
