for sure a good price.
I have paid as high as 1.69 when pork prices were
up and I had to make sausage for orders I had.
I buy mine from local butcher and he always gives them to me
just a little over cost and they are always very nice butts.
.99 here at a local small store. I vac seal them and they are good for a long time. I just got a chuckie out that was there since 07 (got lost in the bottom of freezer ) and it tasted just like a fresh one off a cow ..
On sale, 99 cents otherwise price be 1.68 fer butss, shoulder runs bout a dime less. When they have a sale, an it ain't very offen, I stock up, usually a 100 pounds er more. Can get a shoulder sometimes on clearence cheap.
Well with a pending 60lb of sausage to grind and case (as soon as I decide on a grinder) and the up coming cooking season I went with 85 lb, if the check book will allow I will pick up a couple more 2 packs on the way home tomorrow.. These were fresh and had not been frozen. Norrmal price is $1.89 so almost half price. I tossed one in the fridge marinating to go in the smoke tomorow!!
Since I reside in an area that has plenty of markets that cater to the Hispanic community, I've been able to catch butts on sale for $.88 lb. Most times the larger chains have their sale @ $.99 lb. Also according to the FoodSaver book, storage life for beef, pork, lamb and poultry is 2-3 years.
