Seems Butts were .89-99cents pp for several years in a row. I haven't seen them at that price since before the New Year. Found picnics at 1.29, and butts at 1.69. What are you all paying?

    I recently paid $1.59 pp for a two pack BB.

    I will add that the cryo package weighed 22 pounds so each butt was big. I smoked them for shredded and one came off in 10 hours and the other in 12. I mixed the meat and packaged a bunch of food saver packs for two people eating and poped them in the freezer. We thought it was the best tasting butt we have had to date. :P

    1.89 on sale is about as cheap as it gets around here, regular price 2.49.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Paid 1.69 for 32lbs today.

    My son's first Birthday party Friday night.
    I still think it is this cheapest way to feed a lot of people really good food. (actually my favorite food)

    NO DOUBT! Everybody LOVES it and it is an easy cook. :)

    BTW, another store in the area had them $1.39 a lb this week.
    I decided to buy the 1.69 because the guy that owns that store down the street does business with us at our Pharmacy.

    Regular price has been $1.99 for couple of years, sale usually $1.79. List has gone up to $2.49 now and the sale price is $1.99. Though I did find some a few weeks ago for 99¢. They only had two... both followed me home.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Bought a case at Sam's for a cook last week @ $1.51/lb. I think they were $1.69 for the double pack.
  • That's cuz the feed keeps going up. It did again yesterday with the latest release of the US Department of Agriculture crop report.
