    Went to Sams club and asked for the heaviest case of butts... Here they are 71.70 lbs....10 butts. I love the box. Its even bigger than my last case. They make good storage boxes for spices. I use my fillet knife and slide it in the flaps and cut the glue so they don't rip....

    Have some cheddar and some pepper jack HT cheese....hmmmm... Never tried the pepper jack in sausage... a new one for me......

    I'm sure there will be some wieners too

    Time to get busy

    Thanks for looking

    You got such a nice big butt box


    Its always fun to re up butt for sausage.

    What store did you butt those at...:)
  7. Nice! can't wait to see what the end results are.
  8. Looks like a nice (read: large) batch of sausage in the making there Joe!

    Question for ya, I see the price on the box is $1.36 a pound.  I'm assuming they discounted the price because you bought a case?  Around here, Sam's butts in a 2-fer cryo pack go for about $1.79 a pound.  If they're knocking that much off a case, I may have to look into buying them that way in the future.

    Nice butts! $1.36 is a great price. Not too long ago I remember 99 cent sales...... I keep hoping for that again!!!!

    Yes, Sams club has case prices.... I usually call to find out what it is.....I guess the price follows the pork market because it changes all the time..... Sometimes I can get better prices in the grocery

    I miss those days.. 40 cents a lb added makes a big difference out of pocket bying in large quantities. Cant imagine when sale price will top 2 dollars a lb in the future... It will get here

    Wow eman, that is great!

    Seems like everything has been going up lately... arrgh!
  15. After seeing this I had to check what the price was at my local Sams. It was per lb 1.58 is the display case and by the whole case 1.39.  So buying on average a 70lb case we can save $14 not to bad at all.  I think I will be heading up that way this weekend for a load of pork.
