    yo cajunsmoker,
    its called the ridges around here .
    a little south and a little west starts the ozark plateau.

    about +100 miles south [in the bootheel of the state]
    the delta begins------
    i think only about 3 counties grow cotton.

    folks are trying to make this a wine country area.
    almost to fancy for me.
    i do wish them success.
    i like the 5 liters in a box and screw off lids kind.

    yo tommy c dude,
    is that $2+ for butts from a super market or a custom butcher??

    if its from U sack your stuff ---YIKES
    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???

    i would write my U.S. elected officials---
    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...

    Larry,
    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.

    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!
    Cheers!

    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!

    Cheers!
