Boston Butt Prices

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Today I hit the Winco down in Medford to scoop up a pair of butts for Joe's graduation potluck dinner. I found a nice pair all neatly tied up for $1.68/pound and I got to wondering what prices others pay.

So, what do you pay in your next of the woods?

Well I can't say what they are normally around here but just today I found my very first true ones and they were an amazing $1.19lb, but I know that is not a normal price from what I have read.

We usually pay .99 on sale, but lately there have been some for .87 on sale. These are bone-in, but the bone is very small and pulls right out when smoked.

Fom now to summer around here they'll be .99 -1.19 a pound on sale someplace. Come summer if you can find one it will be closer to 2 bucks.

I buy them buy the case and usually pay around a buck a pound
doesnt usually vary more than a few cents one way or the other

I just did a large BBQ for church and had to really shop around b/c every place wanted over $2 a pound!icon_eek.gif! I ended up at Sam's Club with a case price of $1.02 per pound.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif. Normally I wait for a sale of around .99 a pound or so and it can usually be had.

Mr. Mac, I agree with you...He is risen indeed!

Around SE Michigan.

Kroger: .99 (sale w/card) up to 2.19, averaging 1.59 lb. on any given day
Meijer: Always 1.59 or more, I've never seen it cheaper there.

Other grocers and butchers range from 1.19 (sale days) to 2.59/lb with the average price being about 1.59/lb.

I only do bone in butts

At a local butcher shop who raises their own pigs, and slaughters the meat to order $2.09 to $2.19 lb. Freshest, and nicest butts I have worked with. I buy these for special smokes(b-days, small parties, etc).

At some grocers on my way home - $.99 to $1.19 lb. good meat, and the price is right(I use these for larger parties, and just the regular weekend smoke)

I dont buy the injected "enhanced" pork, but I see it for well under $1.00 lb.

I dont like to pay for water/saline, and I want to be the one injecting my butts with my injection.

I am able to get them for .99 per lb but that is usually win packs, non-enhanced. I have a single I got for .88 biut it says "up to 12% solution may be added..."

In Portland, OR Safeway has bone in shoulder (AKA - butt's) for 0.99 per lb. if you get it in the bag (might have to ask the meat guy for a bagged one).

In northeast Florida I can get bone in butts from anywhere from .88 lb to 1.38lb depending on where you buy you but them. The prices I quoted was resturant depot and sam's warehouse.
