    Just curious how much you folks are paying for your butts. I picked up two really nice big butts from BJ's Wholesale Club for $1.39 lb last week. Also, their fresh hams usually go for $0.99 lb, but they had zero in stock. I prefer the butts anyway...

    I can usually get butts at one store or another for .99 per lb.

    Roger, Rodger (I've been waiting to say that) ............ .99/lb is a frequent sale price in MD too. But I dont mind paying more if it looks real fresh, that goes for all meats. I pay'd about a $1.49/lb for a boneless one when I made Buckboard bacon this past winter.

    Yeah thats about right for us in CT. I was at stop and shop last sunday and they had a couple butts marked at 1.99. I checked them twice to see whether it was a sale price or not. It appeared that 1.99 per pound is regular price, although i meant to ask the meat counter guy but forgot.

    Butts never used to be in stock, occasionally i could get "country style" ribs. Now ive been there a few times and seen them in the thing every time. I think there is a luker meat guy in my area. They had casings too at one point that someone else requested and now butts?!?
     
  8. Our regular price is $1.59

    Well, so far I'm really impressed with BJ's meat dept., both with quality and prices. Unfortunately, they run out of some things too quickly and don't get restocked when I need them... I guess I'll just have to get to know the meat manager a little better... [​IMG]

    Lol, I know what you mean, I have to put mental blinders on somtimes when I walk in, Either that or I only bring enough cash to pay for what I'm looking to buy.
    They also have free passes, just call ahead to the desk and ask them if they have any free passes cause you want to try it out before buying a membership. I have also seen the free passes in the Sunday paper.

    Ditto! I have to go in those kind of places with a list and adhere strictly to it. I call it stealth shopping - I'm in, get what I need, and I'm out. Quickly. My wife hates going there with me, as she loves to "stray" from said list... [​IMG]

    I just bought a case of butt at Sam's Club in Indianapolis for .99 a lb. That is the case price. The price for individual butts is 1.30 something. I imagine Sam's Club prices are the same no matter where the store is located. The case I bought was 69 lbs. We are going to have a party this weekend!

    finally found a place(well the missus did..lol)... $1.39/lb regular price when you buy one butt or talk to a junior butcher.... $.99/lb when you talk to the head butcher
