Stupid me! Buffalo used to be a booming metropolis in the mid 1900's. A great hub town for grain & livestock. I even recall a historical plaque in the P.O. driveway about the slaughterhouse yards.
Well, right around the corner from me is a wholesale type place and I called it and talked to a young girl who asked if I had a salesman, so I said no, but I did buy stuff years ago there. She still took care of me and gave prices. Some are only in quantity or cases.
beef brisket, 70lb box, $1.89lb
fresh pork picnic, (6) 8lb pcs, $1.19lb
boneless pork butts, 4 x 2pks, $1.49lb
shoulder butt w/bone, 50lb box, $1.49lb
spare ribs, 30lb (3 x 2pk), $1.49lb
baby backs: I'd like to confirm by trying to purchase first, only because the price was ridiculously low, nowhere ner my local store's ad prices. They are sold in 10lb packs.
My pepper smoke is almost done, I'll try to take some pics later and I think I'll pay the wholesaler a visit!
Can somebody explain the differences between the picnic, boneless & shoulder butt w/bone? The girl on the phone said the picnic was the best for pulled pork...
