Kroger here sold them for 1.99 pound about a year ago. Maybe the Texas BBQ guys keep the market inflated in your area.Exactly and that's why I haven't bought any beef since prices went up. Pork and chicken only and then only on sale or as a loss leader. The last brisket I saw couple weeks ago was $70+ for 18 lbs. It's been years since I've cook a brisket and I'm hungry for one but not at that price.
Been a year so I am not sure. I think here it was with card & the digital coupon was good for some extra amount for a net of 1.99. Different market areas for all the companies do different deals all the time.The $70 price was a packer and at Kroger with no card. I don't think they showed a card price on it, odd.
I don't want to seem **** I am raining on your parade but would not consider myself a friend if I did not say this.Packer???
Since we don't like corned beef or cabbage, I went for shepherd's pie.
Meat prices in general has gone up here to the point of insanity with beef being the worst. That's why I've reserved a 1/4 cow from a local grass fed, grass finished farm. It's going to be expensive, but I know the quality will be fantastic and my freezer will be full for a while. Here's what I'll be getting for between $900-$1,100 depending on how big the cow is and I'm able to swap out the ribs for something else. I'm thinking some oxtails and more cube steaks...
I'm blessed to know the difference and I'll take fresh from the farm any day!Most people actually prefer the industrial produced beef in blind tastings.
Thanks and I know you're not being an arse. I've done this before and never regretted a penny of it. These folks are extremely fair in their pricing. I'd be paying more per lb if I bought it separately instead of as a package.I don't want to seem **** I am raining on your parade but would not consider myself a friend if I did not say this.
My son did one of those last fall and still regrets it. My wife's uncle owned several farms, bred, grew and sold cattle, and always said buy your meat at the store. Live weight, hanging weight net weight. Please do some reading while you have time to cancel.
You can save big bucks buying the cyro packs and cutting it up yourself.You don't have to have wholesaler access. Sams & Costo have the meat. There is a YT video showing how to do all the popular cuts
These 'cow deals' will give you $7-8 a pound 80/20 burger meat and NR rated steaks & roasts.
