The Price of Cow!

Larry 'n NassauI’ve heard several news reports lately about the rising price of beef but haven’t been to the store to check things out. Today, stopping at White’s Meats in Bainbridge, I came face to face with the new reality.

I had Jeff cut me an eight pound brisket for the smoker and while I was waiting I surveyed the steak section of the display case. T-bone was bringing $8.99, NY strip $9.99, and filet mignon a whopping $15.99 a pound. At $2.99 a pound for brisket I think that’s about as close to steak as we’ll be getting this summer. Thankfully there are still some cheaper cuts and we have a good smoker.
