    What's up with pork prices? At my local store butts were $3.59 a pound!!!!! They want about $30 for an average butt!!! I won't be doing much pork at THOSE prices! Any idea what's going on or when things will get back to normal? My smokin' days may be short at these prices....
  2. I knew beef prices were on the rise but not pork...... Paid $1.59 a LB in Louisiana the other day for butts..... But over $3.00 is crazy!!
  3.  I talked to a buddy of mine at a local butcher shop this morning and the current butt prices here are $2.69 a pound. He said that a disease has hit the swine industry and that all of the ones that would of been going to slaughter now were the ones effected. Therefore a shortage of slaughter hogs is whats causing the price increase.
