      Agreed, I may shovel the snow off the grass, cut it and make a salad

    I guess two things come to mind, the citizens are now a captive audience as they can't jump over into the States, and with rising healthcare costs they are collecting it somehow. I miss going up north, but prices like that would make me pack a sack lunch!

        Mr. Bones, the price of beans and rice went up in price when there was a meat shortage back in the early 70's.

        That is what I would call highway robbery! I hope you find some affordable protein, so that you can eat, and also continue to support your BBQ and culinary pursuits.

          So how's the rabbit hunting around there? Looks like it may be time to source some wild protein.

                I'm thinking meat packers have spent millions to take Covid precautions and handed the costs right on down the line to consumers.
                I get that but they could have eased us into it instead of a gut punch.
                Like I said above there was another bunker of chicken breasts that was probably half the price on this bunker. I know which one I'm parking at next time.

              If my math is correct (not a sure thing at all!) that's about $8.20 US/lb. Very expensive.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
