You Want How Much?
CAUTION*******RANT ZONE AHEAD
My wife thought it would be good to make up some wings for a party so I put wings on the shopping list. Stopping at the Sam's Club Tyson frozen wing section I was blown away at the price, $3.79 a pound! Wings are throw aways the real chicken meat that sells for $1.00 a pound. 75 cents a pound for leg quarters. Considering most wing weight is bone makes this a really bad deal.

I worked at Harmon's meat department in the early 90s. We sold wings for 0.69 a pound then people started to make wings and with in 6 months there were up to 1.99 a pound. Seems like they keep going up.

Same thing with ribs. $5.00 a pound for a pile of bones!

I would like to try beef ribs but everything I see in the store has had the meat scooped out between the bones, for hamburger I guess.

Larry, next time you are in CostCo or Sam's Club ask at the meat department for some of their Beef ribs, before the cut them down to Beef short ribs. They come as a three or four bone section and have a lot more meat than the shinners they sell in other places.

Respice, adspice, prospice. Latin proverb.
Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!

The standard beef rib today is taken off the back of the ribeye (prime rib) so they can get the $6+ a pound for that rather than the $2 a pound for the ribs.
