I opened the freezer earlier and found out I am down to my last container of pulled pork. That means this weekend will be one of smoking a couple of pork butts to restock the reserves. And I have to do another trip to the local Wally World and see if they still have the cheap spareribs for a ridiculous low price.
I can almost hear a couple of you grumbling about “another foodie post” but hear me out. I pack lunch to work and I eat a lot of that delicious BBQ for an insanely low price. My local true BBQ joint prices its pulled pork and $11+ a pound while mine comes about just under $4 and I get three work lunches out of it. Where I work offers a lunch cooked in the facility’s kitchen for $2.50 and it tastes as industrial bland as you can imagine and far from healthy. Other coworkers choose to buy from the nearby fast-food joints and I believe the cheapest meal you can grab is about $5 and again, not all that healthy.
I am eating good and cheap, and I secretly enjoy the looks of envy of my fellow co-workers when they come into the break room and smell honest-to-God BBQ.
I am an a-hole, I know.
