So I was heading upstate NY last weekend and I wanted to stop at this specific famous butcher for the first time. Anyway, great spot, fantastic meat. So heading up there I wanted to possibly pick up a boston butt; my local NJ butcher has fantastic BB and charges around $2.50 per/lb (boneless). Not cheap, but doable and the quality is excellent. I went to this famous upstate NY butcher and the cost there was an unbelievable $8.99/lb for bone in and 10.99 per/lb for boneless. Now I completely understand and appreciate paying up for quality, but come on, that is insane and I can't believe anything sells at that price - but no doubt they do. Can anyone beat that or have I found the most expensive BB on the market.
And what else can you throw out there that is ridiculously expensive? And I am not looking for I saw a Kobe ribeye for $XX. However, if you see a
prime ribeye and it was insane I would love to hear about it.
