12 weeks is the average sales cycle on meats so when you see say boneless skinless chicken breast for $1.59#, stock up, it won’t come around for about another 12 weeks. Many people ask what’s a good price and when it comes to meat here are my guidelines:
- No more than around $1 per poound for pork. It’s often $.99 by us for a roast and if we need chops I cut it into that.
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts $1.59#
- Beef around $2.
- Italian sausage around $1.80#
- Ground beef $1.50
Honestly if I’m paying $2 per pound for meat, it better be beef. The others go on sale so often that I don’t think it’s worth it.
Finally, when you think cheap meat I live by a principal that I teach all my classes…………….
CHEAP MEAT TASTES GREAT IN THE CROCKPOT!!
