i hear ya, just bustin your chops a bit. I am crazy like alot of folks on here, I havent missed more than 2 or 3 weekends of smoking in the past 12 months or so
those regular prices for spares in your area are steep.. smart move to stock up.
Spares(unenhanced) are always under $2.00/lb here. got some last week for $1.59lb, and they were on sale at another spot for $1.49/lb.
If I really want the good ones, I can get them from a local butcher who has his own hogs for $1.79/lb.
looking forward to you smokin those up.
