Check out the rich dude who can still afford meat.

I can still afford meat. Mostly. But it's because I don't waste money on pre-packaged crap and junk food. My food budget is getting a serious beating but I'm still keto/low carb.

I too can afford meat! Cause I bought like 4 heads of cattle 1.5 years ago and the freezer is still stocked.

Literally the second best investment of my goddamn life seeing the price PLUMMET during coofpanic cause all the restaurants closed and then not only return to normal but easily go up >20%.

Saved me over $5000 dollars in meat had I bought it piecemeal over time.

Not to mention I also got the organ meat. It's goddamn impossible to get that shit at any butcher round here. Probably cause the petfood processor buys the bulk on contract weight.

If you don't have one, get a generator and an underground fuel tank which only you know you possess. A generator with same fuel as your most important vehicle.

Yea anyone can if they give up their other hobbies and lifestyle just in order to keep their diet the same. Think about how many people try to eat as cheap as they can vs healthy as possible. (Like a college student for example).

My local grocery store sells beef heart. I'm thinking of buying it ($2.70 a pound) adding some fat and throwing it in my meat grinder. I'll be paying old prices again.

That is some Common Core math if I've ever seen it. Tell me again how my $1.99 Trump chicken is just a tad bit less than Biden's $6.99 chicken. And how about the gas cost to go get some of Biden's $6.99 chicken while sitting at 4 minute stop lights.

I'm relatively lucky in that regard, and I might dust off my bike and get new tires and give that a try soon. The only part that concerns me is getting run over by Biden's angels.

Saw a comment the other day that really hit home. Dude was complaining that filling up his motorcycle costs what it used to cost him to fill up his car under Trump.

Valensiakol 7 points ago +7 / -0

Yep, these faggots are downplaying the fuck out of the true inflation.

Food has literally doubled. Every trip to the grocery store for me is costing two to three times more than it was just a couple years ago. And don't even get me started on gas.

Only $10 more for BBQ this year versus last year? How retarded do they think we are?

3
MythArcana 3 points ago +3 / -0

I think what Biden's Farm Bureau meant is that it's $10 more on EBT. I can't think of any other explanation other than pure propaganda.

Bought ribeye, like I do every year for the 4th. Last year it was $11.29/lb for prime (still stupid expensive because of joe.. but there's a difference between prime and choice).. this year? Good guy price $18.79. FJB

5
Christ_Our_King 5 points ago +5 / -0

I got my prime ribeyes for 19.99/lb. And that's the sale price...

5
UnitedStatesofSmash 5 points ago +5 / -0

Shit, "premium" or whatever it is at Wal-Mart (which is really just good quality choice grade) is like $20 a pound where I'm at in Florida. It's higher at Publix. Fortunately, you can buy local here from farms and get a half a cow for $6-$7 a pound.

5
TommyLasordasBallBag 5 points ago +5 / -0

I know a butcher and raise my own beef for most the year (hence good guy price).. but a professionally raised/fed ribeye tastes different than the pasture raised animal that spends more time in its short life pissing me off than it does feeding me.

If your cookout is for one person, maybe

DinosaurAlert 8 points ago +8 / -0

With nothing else, those two steaks alone have risen more than $10.

Here is the list they used:

Edit: As a side note, I love how they explicitly added "FRESH SQUEEZED lemonade" and "HOMEMADE potato salad" but it is really purchased crap...

2 pints of strawberries

13-ounce bag of chocolate chip cookies

8 hamburger buns

2.5 pounds of homemade potato salad

2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts

32 ounces of pork & beans

2 pounds of ground beef

Half-gallon of vanilla ice cream

3 pounds of center cut pork chops

2.5 quarts of fresh-squeezed lemonade

1 pound of sliced cheese

13-ounce bag of potato chips

5
AbrahamLincoln 5 points ago +5 / -0

The sample cookout is you buy a pack of hotdogs and a banana, leave them sitting outside to attract bugs, and then eat the bugs.

I once witnessed a EBT card lady come through my line with all that you posted and MORE.

2
SouthernParadise 2 points ago +2 / -0

Hawaii EBT would piss you off then. They pay Micronesians $3500/food stamps and $3500/cash allowance. We’d go to Costco and these folks would have every seafood known to man piled on top of the best steaks in their carts. And two other shopping carts and they’d still be outside after, selling their left over EBT.

If you want your meat, you must give them the equivalent weight in the meat of their choice.

-1
AlohaSnackbar -1 points ago +1 / -2

I've found it really difficult to get an accurate weight of my meat.

obviously I'd want the fully erect weight, but even weighing it flaccid doesn't account for the fact it's attached at the base and am i supporting it if I'm standing too high off the scale, or am i putting extra weight on if I'm too low?

1
SPEDMan64 1 point ago +1 / -0

You need a kitchen scale on a table at waist height, then a few books or boards to stack so you bring your member to tabletop level, thus it will be supporting itself as much as possible considering the connection to your body and you won't be so low as to pull down on the scale. This should give you a pretty close estimate of weight. Obviously this only works when non-erect.

1.99 pork steaks and $4 bratwurst packs are still a thing in MO. Just stocked up for the 4th. Shop carefully friends, and buy in bulk when you find the deals.

Find a local farmer. Just got a half cow for 1400 fills the freezer

3
DRKMSTR 3 points ago +3 / -0

$1400 for 220lb of meat, so $6.36/lb average, half of that is ground beef.

That's store prices right now.

3
dr_gonzo 3 points ago +3 / -0

Ya and unfortunately prices NEVER come down, which means this problem is only solved when inflation is stopped, and then wages go up enough to match the prices.

That's exactly what happened in the 80s. Reagan first got a handle on inflation, and then families making between 20k-50k saw their household income increase by 27% annually for 7 STRAIGHT YEARS. That's a record to this day, and by far.

But the problem is that in order to accomplish that, he literally did the exact opposite of what Biden is doing. So there's no end in sight.

Anyone else have a problem with the ubiquity of the term “cookout” lately? Just seems like more blackening of our language to me.

Never heard any person who wasn’t black or from the Deep South (or both) use the term cookout until very recently and now it seems to have replaced the terms “bbq,” “grill,” or “picnic” in ads and commentary, etc. I noticed this on a smaller scale about 15 years ago when everybody started saying “block party.” It seemed then as it seems now that people were just trying to sound more black.

Probably just me but I loathe forced or inauthentic folksy-ness. Like people who say “y’all” or “folks” unnaturally.

3
Greatlakespede 3 points ago +3 / -0

Well a bbq is a bbq. I don't like when people call grilling burgers and brats a bbq.

Bbq is a specific and delicous cooking style, not just slop some industro bbq sauce on a chicken breast (can't be found anyway).

1
Yeeessss 1 point ago +1 / -0

I’m with you on words mattering. Burgers and dogs is just grilling for sure. BBQ is with charcoal and smoke and usually low and slow.

I just think cookout is subbing for the now supposedly racist word picnic. I mean the only thing that differentiates the two in my mind are that a picnic doesn’t necessarily involve cooking (although it can and often does on holidays and large gatherings).

2
dr_gonzo 2 points ago +2 / -0

I grew up in northeastern Maine, which is probably the whitest place you've ever seen, and we called them cookouts in the 80s.

We definitely used that term more than bbq

Yeeessss 1 point ago +1 / -0

That’s kind of a point in my column if I have to go out of my way to hear the expression organically.

I live around black people. They say cookout. I am white and have interacted with predominantly white people but also lots of Hispanics and Asians. Only people from the south and blacks say cookout. It’s becoming more common but I argue inorganically.

Now that I think about it, it’s really more the term “folk” (singular) that I object to and sounds phoney. As in black folk, queer folk, poor folk, etc.

I will admit I put it in my vocab recently 2019, and used it a lot on fakebook to get through to older relatives, it had no positive or negative effect/outcome, now I like it, but like other words, it will fade away, like mint, wicked and conspiracy. 😂🤷‍♀️

HiImDuganz 2 points ago +2 / -0

I can't find it offhand but if you look at the quantity of product that they consider to be a "picnic" it is literally a snack sized bag of chips and a pound of hamburger.

It's the same basket of goods (although the potato chips were 13oz in 2021, and they're 16oz now).

There is likely some shrinkflation going on. Either way, the Farm Bureau admits that most farmers are not able to make up for their rising costs by increasing the price of their products. There's a gap that is essentially a ticking time bomb: no one wants to raise prices, so when someone finally does, it's going to create a whipsaw effect.

2 pounds of ground beef, $11.12 (+36%)

2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, $8.99 (+33%)

32 ounces of pork & beans, $2.53 (+33%)

3 pounds of center cut pork chops, $15.26 (+31%)

2.5 quarts of fresh-squeezed lemonade, $4.43 (+22%)

2.5 pounds of homemade potato salad, $3.27 (+19%)

8 hamburger buns, $1.93 (+16%)

Half-gallon of vanilla ice cream, $5.16 (+10%)

13-ounce bag of chocolate chip cookies, $4.31 (+7%)

2 pints of strawberries, $4.44 (-16%)

1 pound of sliced cheese, $3.53 (-13%)

16-ounce bag of potato chips, $4.71 (-4%)

Those prices do not reflect the everyday american grocery store's food prices. Not sure where the person who came up with those shops, but it's not anywhere near me.

Hattmall 1 point ago +1 / -0

What are yours like? More or less?

Most of that stuff is cheaper for me, but it depends on the store, the brand, and other factors, like the beef leanness, fresh or frozen chicken etc.
