    Hey guys, need some ballparks for these

    Brisket

    Short rib

    Chuck

    How much would I pay in the midwest for these in choice? How about prime?

    Thank you so much in advance. I am really trying to get all pricing info whether it be a credible source or, well, an anonymous forum member   :]

    I pay $3 a pound cut wrapped and delivered when I buy a 1/4 of beef once a year. Individual cuts from that source are a bit higher but still reasonable for high quality locally butchered beef.

    Brisket Choice 3.76

    Chuck depending on what you want is between 4-8 per #

    Short Ribs depending again on what you want exactly- 2 bones are around 9.80 per pound

    I don't usually buy prime.
