    I just saw an ad in the paper where the local HyVee grocery store has Boneless Boston Butt Pork Roast for $1.59 per pound. My first thought was "this is an excellent price" but after thinking about it I'm not so sure. I have never bought a boneless butt. [​IMG] What do all of you think? Is that a good price? Will it cook the same as a Bone-In Boston Butt?

    Thank you.

    Family Fare (formerly Great Day-still Spartan stores) just had a $1.29 a pound sale here in Grand Rapids, MI. I grabbed a couple. Normally about $1.99 a pound.
    The pork they get is as good as anywhere, although I perfer to get my meat at a smaller butcher shop most of the time. Especially ground stuff. I was a 'production' meat cutter for several years and I have my reasons for that...[​IMG]

    i live in the "Hood" capital..lol

    crime central but great prices on the meat..lol

    the place i go to had their own butcher and they dont waste a piece of meat. it all gets sold so their prices are somewhat cheaper.

    the cool thing in the summer is that nobody wants the baby backs, they just want the spares..that's when i stock the freezer with ribs

    I usually get them for $1.69. There was a local place that had them on sale at the first of the year for $.99, I got 3 of them. They also had pork loins for $1.68 but they were out[​IMG] .

    Our Safeway's regular price is $2.69 lb and I wait for the sale price of $.99 and stock up. I always have 3 or 4 butts in my freezer.
