$14/lb? I didn't think you liked those high end steaks?
I think I pay about $2.99/lb for pork butts, about the same for whole briskets, and maybe $3.99 for ground chuck, which is what I always use for ground. All choice beef. They run specials and I've bought strips for about $5-$6 lb if I recall but if you want to spend $14/lb, he's got some cuts that'll do it, but are worth it. I don't always trust myself preparing good cuts like those though.
Sausage is a little expensive, but man they make some awesome Italian sausage, and the boudin is even really good. Maybe not quite as good as what a friend brings back from some place in La. but it's good.
Besides, it's a part of local history, and Bobby Flay has even highlighted them on one of his shows.
If you want to smoke or cure your own bacon, he brings 2-3 bellies in each week, just call and he'll get you one. I just noticed too, they're carrying bison now, and boerewors. Never had it (it's a South African sausage), but it sounds good.
Besides, you can have lunch (or to-go or cater) there too, while you're picking up your own stuff. I hate going near lunchtime because it smells too good!
