Default Local meat prices.

I look at Wal-Mart, on base, Albertsons and Smiths, the meat prices are near the same.

Some of the thick cut is about $9 a pound and some of the regular is running about $7 a pound, ground beef is about $6 a pound based on 83% lean. This is going off the top of my head.

The only semi-good deal was Albertsons, buy one and get one free for the beef and the pork is buy one and get two free.

Any one else seeing the rise in price? If so, please indicate the cost.

We are seeing meat prices rising quickly. Chicken legs and thighs have jumped from 56 cents a pound to 72 cents a pound. Hamburger can be found for $3 a pound. End cut pork chops are $1.90 a pound. Fresh pork shoulders are priced at $1.90 /$2.00 a pound. Fresh ground pork sausage is $2.50 a pound. Frozen hamburger patties are $18 for 8 pounds.

We have Wally, Fry's(Kroger), Safeway, part of Albertsons, and Bashas'. ( I miss Pathmark, A&P, waldbaums, & Stop & Shop!!!). Fry's is about the best you can do in Fresh meats, but if you want frozen, Wally is cheaper.

Burger patties(fresh-85-15) is 10 for $10. One thing I see here that I never saw back east is 73-27!!! Yuk,..too much fat content, 80-20 is about as low as I go the 1-2 times a month we actually have red meat. I use ground Round(85-15) or Sirloin(90-10) to mix with Ground turkey for Burgers, tacos, or meat loaf. Right now Steaks are outrageously expensive. I did a round roast for Passover,..it was almost $20 for 3-1/2 Lbs...
Ground Turkey was on sale this week, and it was Ground Breast(93%) so we got 2 Lbs for $6.
Instead of steak this yr. For our Memorial Day Bash, we'll do franks & Beef and Turkey sausages, and maybe if we catch a sale, Burgers..

We made fake Asian tonight. Rice-a-Roni low sodium with corn, mushrooms and onions, veggie egg rolls, and chicken pieces....

In fact, I have only had two steaks in the last 10 months. Last year. On my Birthday,( my wife's brothers family was also here on Vacation, and my BIL's birthday is the day after mine) and in Vegas for Shot, at the Buffet in the Excalibur, and maybe before we left for Shot, we were at Sizzler once, the head cook there does not know what "well done" means...

The Gov keeps saying that inflation is low, they must not be buying any food, gas or clothing. I can see the days of casseroles and loafs coming back in style. My wife was going to buy us a couple steaks last week and they were $9.00 for 2 small ones, forgetaboutit! I may take hunting back up!

My wife usually makes the List,..and I run the Calc-Bot calculator app on my phone while she scans sale prices,..esp. On sold out items for the rain checks or substitutions...

Look at the prices at local small butcher shops. We have two in this little town that sell way cheaper than the big chain stores. Still expensive but cheaper.

Yep, sticker shock everywhere on meat prices.
Most likely it will creat a bumper crop of deer hunters in the woods.

Our meat pricers are rising like the rest of the country,along with the other normal costs of living items. We've been seriously thinking about raising our own beef,pork,and chicken to help with the inflated prices these days.
