Been a few months since I have done ribs. Normally I can get a couple of racks for 8 or 9 bucks. Yesterday I noticed the roices have skyrocketed to around $23 a slab!

Prices are high here too, best Id seen was 3-4 dollars a pound. Last year I was catching sales for 2 dollars a pound.

ribs here are still the same, but tri tip is way higher than before.
I see tri tips for 30-40 bucks now, 9 - 10 a pound

Every meat seems to up except maybe chicken. But beef is just out of control.

I'm looking at $20 for a rack of loins last time I checked here in NH.

Remember the summer of 2020? They were killing pigs by the thousands when the packing plants closed and they had no place to ship them. A lot of farmers quit raising pigs...at least for a while. We're still feeling the effects of that. IPC (Indiana Packers Corp) here in Indiana has billboards all over paying $18.50 (up from $15) for production workers. Along with high grain prices, higher shipping costs ( fuel is at least 50% higher, THANKS JOE!), and they're having trouble getting big rig drivers back to work!

Poultry is next. We aren't going to see $ .49 turkeys this year!!!!:confused:
