What stores do you get your meats from at a reasonable price? These are some of the sale prices I usually pay:
1) Boneless chicken breast $1.79/lb
2) Bone in chicken breast $.99/lb
3) Sirloin steak $2.99/lb
4) Ground beef chub 5lb $5.00
5) Center cut Pork chops $2.50/lb
These are just some examples. I'm looking for a clean store too, if you know what I mean. I like to stock up when they have these sales.

We buy all our meat from Costco. For the quality you can't beat the price.

Sometimes I get meats at BJ's but alot of times I watch the sale ads in the paper
and get alot of on sale meats and freeze .... Or I go ahead and cook a huge recipe
and freeze that. Example: If hamburger is on sale I might make a recipe x5 of chili
and freeze.
I have found the sale meat prices beat BJ's and Sams.

Where to shop depends so much on where you live. I have no idea where the nearest Costco is to me but I do know of a fabulous fresh meat market inside of a gas station! Otherwise, I think Lowe's has the best meat department of all the local chains. They also run a good deal of meats on weekly specials.

Williams Meat Market in Apex. It's on Center street, just off of US1/TenTen exit.

You crack me up!!!

I usually buy my beef at Whole Foods, but I have a 1/4 cow waiting to be picked up. For chicken I usually shop at Trader Joes, sometimes BJ's. I try and shop organic when I can so it isn't cheap. Lowes and Harris Teeter sometimes run good sales.

Funny, there used to be a place in Durham called Foodland on US-70 and Sparger. Great local meat shop with a gas station out front too. When ordering ribeye's the butcher would ask "how many fingers" and then chop your steaks to the thickness you wanted with a knife that looked like a machete. Haven't been by there in probably 5 years, wonder if it's still open?
