Local Hannaford carries 2 lines of BB's regular label for $5.99/lb and All Natural "organic" ribs normally $6.99/lb that have been on special for $2.99/lb for the past week. Picked up 3 2lb+ racks for about $19. Normal price usually $3.99/lb at places other than Hannaford.
Ill see what RD's prices are like next Friday when I go to pick up my ribs for the next days competition. I didnt mind paying a few pennies more for the last batch from RD, they were meaty, and really good like usual.
I did see some of the "enhanced" BB ribs I wont touch/use @ Wal mart for $2.99/lb on Saturday.
pretty much all pork has gone up in the last few weeks
price fluctuates when the grilling season gets into full swing in the midwest
supply and demand I guess
i make allot of sausage and pay about a buck a pound for pork butts most of the time
last 80# case I bought 2 weeks ago was 1.45 a pound.
curious to see what RD has them for next time Im up there
Hormel ribs are $1.89/lb. Limit 8, I was there at 8 this morning getting my case (8) and pretty sure could have taken 2 or 3, the checkout kid had no idea they were even on sale, but in all fairness I'll head back soon and get another case for the freezer :-)
Bought a 30 lb box of 2-2.25lb Baby backs today from my company-Brotherton Foods in San Angelo, Texas at the lowest price that I have seen in quite a while-$2.09lb. Just got through rubbing them down-I'll send a pic of the final product tomorrow!
