    LOL - I know. Same story up here too. I took a pic the other night while I was there (Sam's club) b/c I couldn't believe it how high the price was for wings.

    I did find out that I can buy, Boston Butts by the case at Sam's. They are 60-75lbs per case and are $1.34lbs, which is still a little on the high side, but cheaper than I've seen them in a while.......ShoneyBoy

  5. chicken wings in 5# at sam's today 2.39. whole pork loin 1.99 i got the loin going to cut 1" thick cure with TC then cold smoke with pitmaster pellets and AMPS. that always turns out good.

     to save on meat prices i find it on sale. then price match it at a store that doesn't have it on sale. it is usually cut and trimmed better at the store that doesn't have it on sale.

    happy smoken.

    I never paid attention to the price, to be perfectly honest. I know it's cheaper than having them at the local watering hole, so I made my own.
     
  7. Not only cheaper but a lot more fun to do at home. At home you can wander through the kitchen with a beer in hand and hassle the head cook

    ( your wife), sit in your yard and burn sticks while you cook. Try that at you local watering hole. My favorite is shooting empty beer cans with the pellet gun.         [​IMG][​IMG]

    I agree Sam.   All they do is deep fry them and dunk them in sauce and triple there money.    I think homemade is way better.  Use a good rub, no sauce required.

    Did no one notice that the URL talked about the Irish and British finding horsemeat in their ground beef?
     
  10. I did.  I'm not a big fan of horsemeat myself - or maybe I am & don't know it?  I grind my own burger now so I can control exactly how much horse goes in it  [​IMG]
     
  11. On the morning news they said that some meat tested as much as 29% horsee meat. Can't be any worse that old mutton.    The Leprechauns did it.
     
  12. The Sam's Club in our area was out of Chicken Wings for the past week and also out the week before Christmas.   I think I paid $2.39 per pound for the last ones.    Like you, the whole chicken was .99 per pound...  I guess there was too many football games going on.   [​IMG]

  14. do you know why we eat cow instead of horse? the horse was easier to train.

    AND the cow was easier to catch!
     
  17. Yup, sure does not look like the price is going down on the wings like I thought they would. Ummm?!?!?! Remember using wings and necks crabbing but now the wings are as expensive as crabs. 

    At least BB is down, running just around a buck per pound here. "When pigs fly" is just a phrase BUTT maybe there are pig wings around somewhere?
