BOGO butts.

I was walking through the store today and that had a sale for buy one pork butt, get the second free. Ended up with a $16 bone in picnic for free. Paid 18 for the first one.

    I'm confused by the label. A 1/4lb butt won't feed many people. You could make a butt burger out of it!

    Obviously a misprint. Is that a 22 pounder for $.28? If so, that's crazy!

  • @Rleeper Obviously it doesn't weight .22 lbs. I'd like to know how much it does weigh and figure out the price per pound.

    It was a mistake by my local Sam's. I actually did the right thing and took it to the meat manager. He thanked me and gave it to me at that price. Weighed it when I got home and it weighed a little over twelve pounds....two bone in Butts in the pack!

    A tad over 2¢ a pound. Not a bad day shopping for you. Bet they'll taste even better too!!

    @cortguitarman , I'd pass out if I saw a BOGO like that around here. That crap dont happen.

    @RLeeper. You deserved it at that price. Good for you for telling the meat manager. If others were marked the same, you just saved Sam's a bundle of money.

    @Central_Bama_Egger My wife usually rolls her eyes when I talk about meat sales. This time she asked if we should buy more than 2!
