i'm headed out to the store today & will post back w/ the prices on ribs,brisket,pork shoulder & butt,chicken & ribeyes fyi. if anyone else hits the market today would ya do the same. just comparing prices across the nation. i know our town has the highest meat prices in the southern part of the state and the most livestock per capita.
I was able to get pork shoulders and loins at $1.19lb last week.

Picked out 4 shoulders and 5 loins for under $40

They weren't the biggest cuts, but the price was nice.
Off my head, I know the Costco here sells whole chickens @ .69 cts/lb.
But you have to get two chickens.
Pork tenderloins for 3.99/lb.

Meijers has pork (butts, country ribs, steaks) every now and then for .99cts/lb.
right now my grocer has the pork i bought here a few weeks ago, for $0.99/lb, on sale for $1.29/lb right now. they also have jalapenos for $0.69/lb right now.

gypsyseagod sorry to hear about the family business and i agree, fresh is the way to go if you can do it
i forgot to post this lil' comment i read the other day. and i quote.. "the price of beef is skyrocketing due to the fact that the majority of corn grown in the u.s. is going to ethanol production" - now i know for fact ( check the exports & dow) that 70% of all u.s. crops(corn& grain) go to russia,north korea, & u.n. food programs. i haven't seen a corn fed cow yet in 9 states-we have about 30 & a dairy farm w/ 40 across the road(my brother holds a phd in agro engineering w/a masters in bio chem engineering) damn smart redneck. fuel & transpo costs i would believe.. and the southeastern drought.. ok ok ... got my point across
I'm gonna turn em into sausages Shell. I have been dying to make sausages for a few weeks. I just haven't figured out what yet!

Now you know why I eat so much pulled or roast pork! It's the only good price in the store. Pork is reasonable here but beef rarely is. Fish forget it!

babybacks $3.99
spares $1.99
ribeyes $7.99

rib roast $6.09
loin chops $2.99
country style
ribs $1.99

boneless leg
of lamb $3.99
salmon $6.59

Thing about Costco and Sam's, ya gotta know the prices (sales) at other grocery stores..
Shell -

Well I got two of those cheap shoulders to make sausage. They felt kind of hard. I don't know what they were but they were stringy as an old pair of blue jeans! I trimmed for hours and they still clogged up my grinder! I laid the cut up pieces between ice for hours and no use - still kept clogging. I just got done making my Ring Bologna and threw it in the smoker at 11pm. Never did an all nighter on sausages before! LOL

Maybe it was a really old pig?
