Butts

Have a closing in Boulder today and not wanting to have to run to Longmont to pick up a butt for a cook this weekend I called Herb's Meats in Boulder to get a price.

$5.99/lb ! I asked if he was sure and said "Yes sir, they're $5.99/lb".

Guess I'll be going to Longmont as the butcher there sells them for $1.59/lb.

OH MY GAWD ITS HAPPENING!

People like us take cheap meats and turn em into culinary
wonders, everyone starts doing it, and next thing you know,
the price triples.


SHUT THIS BOARD DOWN NOW!!

I should mention that Herb's carries alot of organic meats and is kind of yuppy in nature, but at that price point it approaches insanity.

They have to price it that high cause all the hippies there in boulder are too busy tryin to love the pig instead of eat it.

I've eaten organic meats and vegetables a couple of times. Wow, what a waste of money! For $5.99lb those butts outta be cooked and vacuumed sealed and ready to eat!

Boulder is 12 miles away. Boulder is 10 miles away from Longmont. Lontmont is 16 miles from the house. I drove past a few rental properties I manage, so the trip was a write off (except for the 2 blocks I had to deviate to get to the butcher incase the IRS is watching, never know these days.

Got a nice 11 1/2 butt for $18 and change.
