    I don't look at beef prices in the flyers, because I buy a side every year from a local farm family who happens to be members of my congregation. I pay whatever the market price is on the day it goes to the processor. I've gotten lucky on that the last couple of years, although I'm on vacation right now and can't tell you what we paid exactly, by the time we added processing. Our price per lb. has actually been lower the past two years than several years before that. So for me, hamburger and ribeye costs the same. I know where the steer was raised, and for the most part, what it ate. They are grass fed until the last few weeks, when they finish them on grain. My wife and I have thought about getting a hog from them, which is their primary business, but had never done it. About a month ago the father/grandfather of the family came by and told me he was going to drop off a hog for me, all I needed to do was take care of the processing. I had the processor do the bacon, sliced thick. We've had more bacon than anything else so far, since it's tomato season which makes it BLT season, and it's some of the meatiest bacon I've ever had. We're going through it fast, and it's going to be tough going back to store bought after this. Anyway, not going to be buying much pork in a store either in the near future. I have watched for when butts and loins came on sale, and stocked up then. I like buying local, from someone I know. If you can, that's what I would recommend.

    Here's an older thread on the subject, to give context to a similar conversation a few years ago.

    In my area meat prices have been fairly stable. I can usually get ribs on sale sometimes for $2.50/lb or thereabouts. $3.69-3.99 lb lately when not on sale. Whole chickens maybe $1.19 to $1.79. Leg/thigh family packs sometimes $.99/lb. Prime packer brisket at Costco I want to say is about $2.69 or 2.89/lb (great deal if you ask me), $6.99-7.99/lb for flats at a few places.

    I increasingly purchase most of my meat from local farmer’s markets, with a bit from Costco and reputable online sources like Creekstone farms. My wife occasionally brings home mystery meat from a supermarket, but that’s becoming rare.

    In mid GA where I live they have a huge butcher shop, M&T Meats. Has everything you could want and reasonably decent prices. They frequently have beef plate ribs and my favorite, veal chops. Veal chops are the most succulent, mini, single person Tomahawk steak. Cut about 1 3/4" thick with the long rib bone attached. Yum, yum.

    I shop at 6 grocery chains. All about 1.5 miles from my house in either direction. Plus the "Beef Palace."

    Wow. You really have some place called "Wolly World?"

    Me too, you have to pass the Bourbon to end up at the discounted dated meat bin. A nice trip that always is to my Ralph's (owned by Kroger) and $3.99lbs for Choice chuck when on sale.

    The United Supermarket Chain has a store in Amarillo, Tx called Amigos. Two weeks before every major holiday they have cryo-vaced ribeye loins for $4.97 per pound and New York strip loins for $3.97 per pound. They didn’t care if I dug around looking for the ones I wanted. After wet ageing they were great. Some of the packages said produced, processed, and packaged in Mexico. I didn't care, they were just incredible steaks.

    I've been doing the paleo eating lifestyle for six years now. My body really can't tell the difference between grass fed and regular meats. My money clip does!

    We've got a whole subforum on special limited time deals. Last winter I posted 99 cents per pound butts at Winn Dixie and the other day I posted a digital coupon for $5 off Kingsford briquettes at a wholesale club.

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

the good one grill
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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
