I usually do a pig for the 4th ....
Prices are through the roof....like 5.00 per pound at publics.. usually 1.50 ...
I can get Boston butts for 2.00 a pound... more principal then money ...
I mean half the pig goes to waste making the meat 10.00 per pound .. hell I can get ribeye for that :nono

can anyone remember the farm in Miami where they kill and dress the pig? :shrug

need to get my pork on!!:grin

    Publix has gone halal and it's jacked the price up.

    It's all about the good times spent cooking it, not the price per pound ! Prices are all up on proteins this year!

    Little late but I would try Penn dutch. Now sure if they are in Dade but there is one in hollywood. I agree we stopped doing the entire pig because it was not worth it as cheaper to get steak. Last time we did it we paid 1.60lb if I recall. Year before that it was like 1.05.
