Does anyone feel like sharing their approximate meat pricing?
I use some imported USDA meats but only in experimenting and comparing. I'm currently foreign located.

A Full Brisket cost me 60 bucks. 13lbs if I recall correctly
Two butts no bone were 43 dollars. Around 18lbs tot.

I'm meeting with one of the local meat distributers next week and just curious on pricing in the states and actually considering importing my own even though the cost is added.

Butt's Boston or full
Pork bellies? That was 45 for me on an imported one.
Briskets?

Thanks for any replies in advance.

You can double the cost of your finished product due to the fact that your 13lb brisket will yield about 6.5-7 lbs and the same with a pork butt. A brisket cost about $2,75 and pork butts about $1.45 and that depends on what day you buy them

Thanks. That's even less expensive than I thought. Especially for the Butts.

I looked at a Brisket in the freezer. I'm paying 5.75/lb on the imported. That one is "Heafford Beef" on the vac pac label That just won't work unless special requested or people surprisingly love a flavor they are not used to around these parts.

Anyone would be amazed at the cattle around here. They look anorexic. The local briskets are not a good choice.
Pork and chicken isn't as bad.
Tuna, Dorado, Spanish mackerel and some of those pelagic fishes on the other hand are great.

I have done a fair amount of measuring yield. It is what it is unfortunately but needs to be factored. Thanks for the reminder.
