JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS)- If you grilled over the holiday weekend, there's a good chance it cost you more than it did last year.
The prices of all meats, not just beef is way up this year.
If you're thinking of changing the menu for your next barbeque, Steaks Eatery Owner, Gene Davis says this is the highest he's ever seen beef prices in 40 years. He also says that he can't change his menu with every price fluctuation, whether prices go down or up.
"So if I'm saving between 10% or 15% on my meat product, I don't put it in my pocket. I pass it on in portions to the guest. So when you come in I'm saving you, without you knowing it, 10% or 15%," said Davis.
Davis isn't the only one who's concerned. Beef cost about 10 cents more per pound this summer than last.
And chicken is up about 6% over last year.
The last pork shipment at Prime Cuts was up almost 30 cents per pound, and the owner, Walt Mcgaskey says, "I was surprised by the thirty cents but it doesn't surprise me a lot that it did go up in the summertime and for the holiday".
Mcgaskey also says nothing's safe from last year's drought or this year's rising fuel costs.
So if you're grilling, pork is still probably the best bet, but Davis says when times are tough and prices are high, he needs to give his customers value so they keep coming back.
