Chuck roll costs more, because it needs to be butchered off the whole primal.. That happens with most meat, hence the spike in price ... less butchering = less price
So, in that vain, buy the whole thing, deboned, which consists of NAMP 116E (roll) and 116D (underblade)..
of course, if you want to go for the gusto, buy the entire 116.. I actually ordered this by mistake once.. kinda freaked out.. ok i freaked out alot lol!! but i made through it ..long story
, but it turned out well in the end ..
wish I had this video when it happened.. the last cut left is the 116E and 116D, before it is broken down to roll and underblade ...that one probably weights over 30 pounds

another suggestion is to buy 1/2 chuck. 1/2 shoulder clod. which is typically 1/3rd less then
Chuck NAMP 114
