    Now I got Schnucks ad in the mail ,$.99/LBS for pork butt!!!!

    How can i pass this up ? Ran to store, they had 3 of them on the shelf. Grab them and ran !!

    Going back today hope they have more in stock. Just started making Sausage so two of these

    I need to get off my butt and get these cut up and make some more sausage ,

    Got one question, when cutting these up do u leave the fat cap on or cut it  off ?

    My first batch I made I cut it off. When I cook it up there wasn't any grease in the pan.

    Thanks for looking will post some more pictures later today

    Your lucky. I don't think I will ever see prices that low around here. If I did I would fill up the freezer with them for sure.
     
  5. That is a great price on butts. Not only that, but they are good weight.

    Lowest price I have found around here is $1.57 lb. and the butts were 

    small 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 lb.

    Wish I could find a few deals like that.

    Happy Smokin

    I only have the 3 so far . Hope they have more when I head up that way tonight. I do need to buy a big freezer. Have 2 refrigerators, freezers on them don't have much room in them

    That's generally the 'best' price I find here on pork butts—more often they hover around $1.79...
     
  17. I would be filling my freezer for that price. I just paid $1.59 for a 10 pounder yesterday at the local butcher shop. Sams club here was at $1.69 yesterday.

    Man I think I'm doing good if I get it for $1.89 lb. Imagine all the BBB I could make at $0.99 lb.
     
  20. Count your blessings - $3.69 a pound for pork here and they dont sell butts!  Picnics, loins, chops but no butts.   Brought 4 butts back with me (frozen and in the checked bag) when I visited Minnesota in September!!!
