I know this post is old now, but maybe people are still finding it, like I did.

Are people forgetting that the OP said they bought a NINE POUND roast? That is a big chunk of meat, and at $101 it is about $11 per pound, which is good for a decent quality prime rib.

I am not sure I would trust a $7/lb prime rib, but maybe I shop at WF too much and have become blind to the prices?

I keep reading that grocery prices are going to skyrocket.

I just finished off $5 worth of fresh cherries -- it was one pound, on sale, and it consisted of one big bowl.

And then I read this thread about prime rib prices -- from nearly three years ago. It surprised me because I buy prime rib at restaurants about twice a year but don't ever have it at home.

Egads. It seems prices have already shot up! I can't imagine them getting higher. I'm glad I like pasta, rice, and beans.

The best time to buy prime rib roast is just before Christmas. Fresh Market usually puts theirs on sale for $6.99/lb. (down from $9.99/lb.). I bought one for Christmas 2009 and it was wonderful.

Don't forget to save the bones to make beef broth. With the size you have, you can make a big batch to freeze.

I smoked mine on the Weber Smokey Mountain until it was 130 internal temp. Then I put it in a cooler for an hour and slice and serve.

I paid 7 bux at Harris Teeter. And it's a standing rib roast. I don't think I have ever seen prime rib for sale at the super market.

Second on Costco. They had a bunch recently just before New Year's and I think it was in the $7/lb range. Looked like some good stuff.

I love cherries but I refuse to pay that much for them. And blueberries are expensive too.

I've decided, Whatever I pay for a deer fence this spring will be worth it if I can grow my own veggies with all this talk of sky high food costs. And they say profit margins for most grocery stores are minimal. And farmers aren't getting rich...so where does all this money go? transportation costs, middlemen

That's the kind where they give cattle beer to drink and massages to relax them. Not for me thanks!
