    Supply and demand is all it is. I'm more worried about pork prices. China has a strong demand for pork products and is experiencing a bad bit of African swine fever. Chinese pork producers are looking at killing herds (some, not all) reducing supply and driving up prices there. If/when China resumes US pork imports (tariff spats), I could see our prices rising here too.

    And Smithfield is the largest pork and pig producer in the world. Ironic how it's a wholly owned subsidiary of the WH Group of China....

    I have read a half dozen similar articles in the last month or so.
    All of the others mentioned the popularity and ease of use of pellet
    smokers as a contributing factor. I am surprised this article omitted
    that part.

    The same thing happened to chicken wings. When I was a kid 35 years ago, we would have chicken wings all the time, shake n bake before the buffalo wing took hold, because my parents bought them because they were cheap, now, what was once considered scraps are priced through the roof.

    Last weekend we took a ride out to Minooka for a BBQ for our God daughter's college graduation.
    Prolly saw 10-15 pellet smokers in use on the 30 min drive there and 10 more when we hit the subdivision. ( Six I could see just from my nephews backyard) and they were all smoking.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!

    Yup. There are several within the last couple of years within 2 or 3 blocks of here.

    Nowadays, only a cut like 7-bone steak is cheap. Is there anything good you can do with those?
