Pork Shoulder Prices

QFC here in Seattle has Bone In Pork Shoulder for $1.49/lb, would you stock up on that price?

    Pretty good price. I pay a little more than that at my butcher in Columbia, SC. I am in Edisto Island, SC this weekend and was in the only grocery store on the island and they had butts for over $4.00 a pound.

  • That's not bad, I think I paid 1.28/lb last time I stocked up but that was a little while ago.

    I would stock up. Last thing you want is to run out of pork as you celebrate the niners loss.

    You realize that that Piggly Wiggly caters to tourist so their prices are high. And since they are the only store for miles they can charge what they want

    That's why you go to the Pig further inland. When I am in Charleston, I go to the one's off of 17. The tourist-y one is off the IOP connector and has Whole Paycheck prices. They do have an awesome beer selection, though.

    $1.29/lb is pretty easy to find in the NOLA area.  I've seen them higher and on sale for $0.99/lb.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    It's 1.29/lb at Costco nearly all the time where I am for the boneless shoulder. Wegmans has it bone-in for that price on an extended sale special.
