    I've never bought much meat other than hamburger and chicken. What's a good price for baby backs? Best I have seen so far is $3.99 a pound. Is that a decent price? Another thing too, how many pounds are in a typical rack of ribs?

    Best deal I got was @ Kroger last month. $1.99 a pound. Average weight is 3 pounds. BB's are expensive! BUTTS are the best deal on the Planet!!

    My local butchers want $4.99/lb - needless to say, they can shove it! $3.99 is probably average. They're EXPENSIVE but done right, they're worth it. Ron and others always either know where/when to look or always get lucky and find good deals. No such luck for me though [​IMG] .

    I bought my first 3 racks of bb's at Sams for around $3.49/lb as others have mentioned. We have never had bb's before (always spare ribs) and after the meaty-ness on those bones, we won't be going back anytime soon to the spares.

    Best I've seen is 2.89/lb at Sams by the case or 3.99 at Food Giant.

    If I find baby backs for $1.99, I'm going to load up. Best I can find here is Sam's Club at $3.47.

    They're usually about $2.99 here sometimes as much as $3.49 but I find em at $1.99 on occasion. A nice big freezer helps on the side!
