i think ive read HERE at SMF that in northern Illinois---Michigan--
Minnesota and your Wisconsin that meat prices are WAY WAY high.

does sheyboygan buy all the butts for brats???
does chicago and detroit and milwaukee deli lunch meat kings
get all the briskets???

to investigate why my Yankee brothers pay so much??
but im afraid the guys in Washington would just raise prices here.

i dont go above I-70 in the months of october 1 thru march 30.
and from now on i will have country hams and corned beef
in the trunk the rest of the year.

once again YIKES...
I buy all of my meat from a butcher. I won't buy from a supermarket cause most of their meat is select and it's crap :roll: But now i'm thinkin'.......and I'm P.O.'d :evil: I think I need to look into this a little deeper. The meat I get is great, but I can't believe it's that much more per# than what yer payin' south of here.
More to come..........I'm off to work.
I just had my wife check the price of supermarket pork butt. $2.49#
:shock: I got mine from the butcher for $2.29# :?:
Bought a pork butt this morning at the local market for $1.99/lb. 5+ lbs for a bit over ten bucks. Gonna shine tomorrow!
Just to clarify....the local market, White's Market, is a family owned and operated business. They have three locations in the area and each location has its own Butcher staff, Deli staff and a very complete grocery offering and the folks there are all super! Every day they roll out a hot buffet as well as a cold deli offering and they make their own bakery products as well. Ya gotta love small town America! It still exists in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont!
Thanks Monty.......I feel a little better now. Still would rather pay the .99 cents a pound they have down south :roll:
But ya gotta figger in the truckin'!

Hey, Tommy, next year I am going into raising my own porkers for real and will track all costs. We'll see how it all works and I will keep the forum posted on the progress and the final cost.

EDIT: Just so you know I have raised and processed pigs in the past but never really tracked the cost! Just was interested in good pork without all the growth drugs!
