My wife is able to shop at the Navy commissary for groceries...we really hadn't been going that much (at all since getting my egg) but went today. HO-LY they have some great prices, and quality meat. Got a 9lb pork butt for $1.22/lb! Everything was priced this well, and all looked fantastic. Where have I been?! Lucky wife has access.

    Choice briskets are $2.00 per lb.

    Meat is the ONLY thing I buy from the commissary or the exchange.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I took a tour of one as part of my first base orientation; they cant make a profit, so they have mych lower costs. Mine would special order stuff and if ut sold rregularly theyd stock it.

    For me the commissary is about 90min drive. Have not yet made the trip, is it worth it? I used to go to the local one when we lived in Indy.
