I know that I posted this under the thread "raw cicken prices" but I feel that this deserves a thread of its own considering the high price of kosher meat these days and higher prices coming down the pike.

Pic-N-Pay is havind some excellent prices this week. Lots of goodies:

Chickens, Whole 1/4 & 1/8 $1.89/lb
Chicken breasts w/wings $1.99/lb
Frozen chicken cutlets $2.99/lb
>>>>> Glatt Rib Steaks $6.99/lb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>>>> Flanken $4.99/lb !!!!!!!!!!

For Monday & Tuesday only
>>>>> Glatt 1st cut Beef Brisket $4.99/lb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots more in ad. Chopped meat, veal etc.

I just went to Supersol to but their chicken cutlets family pack for $2.99/lb. I noticed that they are charging $12.99/lb for rib steak contrast this with the $6.99 that Pic-N-Pay is charging. I forgot to see what they are charging for the Brisket, but I am sure that it no where near the $4.99 that Pick-N-Pay is charging.

Feel free to post some of the good deals that you see locally, you will be doing a favor to other Chowhounders!

      I know, crazy price, but I am looking at the ad now. So unless it is a typo, thats what the ad says. I plan on going on Tuesday since I have a wedding in Boro Park so I will leave earlier to stop by. I hope there is some left over by then. If you or anyone stops by let us know if it is for real.

      Some other specials they have are:
      Ground Chuck $2.39/lb
      2nd cut Veal Chops $5.99/lb
      1st cut Veal Chops $8.99/lb
      Breast of Veal $3.99/lb
      Veal Stew $4.99/lb
      Silver Tip Roast Beef $6.99/lb
      Minute Steak $5.99/lb
      Skirt Steak $6.99/lb

      A bunch of these items I never bought so I don't know how good a deal they are, but this is most of the other ad items.

        I know that in LA, I cannot get meat wholesale for these types of prices. I have seen veal breast as a Pesach special for $4.99/lb at Western Kosher, but that was really a loss leader. Your prices for minute steak and skirt steak are lower than the lowest retail prices I've seen in recent years by at least $3.00/lb. Brisket, wholesale, I can get Uruguay meat or very well trimmed whole midwest packer-cut for prices such as you're describing. Of course, if you're talking USDA graded meat, it's a whole different ball game. My USDA Choice Black Angus boneless rib roasts cost me $10.99/lb wholesale. PRemium meat doesn't come cheap.

            Dov Osina at California Delight has the best prices around, though often doesn't have stock of what I need. His is ungraded midwest beef. For Uruguay beef, why would you want that tough stuff? Maybe ok for stews, but that's about it. I'm sre you can get it even cheaper than Dov's but I don't know who I would go to.

              Thank you. Evidently the meat prices in New York are reasonable. In the midwest and in the south Florida area they are totally out of control.

          This is going to be such a naive question.....but is the meat good? I'm buying most of my meat and chicken for much more at Best Glatt in Teaneck (where I live).

          It is almost seems worth it to do a run into Brooklyn to stock up on meat

            I'e had cutlets and rib steaks from them without any problems. I especially enjoyed their thick cut rib steaks. I hope that their $6.99 price includes them as well. I don't see any reason why not. Last time I went there they were charging $7.99/lb and it didn't matter how it was cut, price was for rib roast, rib steak and the thick cut ones. I am not a big meat eater except for rib steaks.

                  I don't live in Brooklyn (but grew up there) so I have no idea what information they are privi to, but if it says Glatt, then it is fine by me.

                      I would assume that if they would have a fresh meat section that wasn't "Glatt" then the 5 towns community would come down on them big time!

                      Just see what would happen if Smitty's Superette in Woodmere would change their name to Smitty's Glatt Superette.

                        I agree , the 5 towns basically has one kashruth organization, so I agree the 5 towns community/vaad would come down on them (Smitty's) or anyone else

                        Brooklyn unfortunately doesn't have that..

                          Agreed, so we now come to the crux of the matter, here we have a store that has been around for 38 years, advertises themselves as Glatt Kosher and has spectacular prices that could help lots of people save some real money. I have yet to hear from anyone just what is wrong with their hashgacha. If there is a problem, them please SOMEONE speak up.

                          From my perspective this is what I see.(from their web site)
                          --------------------------------------------------------
                          In 1969 Herbert and Marilyn Friedberg opened the doors of Pic-N-Pay, one of the first kosher butchers in the neighborhood. Their vision was to furnish the community with quality glatt kosher meat at reasonable prices, providing their products to as many Jewish families as they could.

                          For years Herb, Marilyn, and their son Bruce, worked together and watched their store become a staple of the Midwood area. Today Bruce has taken the reigns, and Marilyn and Herbert have retired, knowing that their dream would live on.

                          Meanwhile over the past 38 years, Pic-N-Pay has changed and evolved along with their community.

                          Recognizing a demand in the cooked foods market Herbert and Marilyn brought in their two children, Helaine and Bruce, graduates of the Culinary Institute of America, to create a cooked foods section.

                          Relaxing the needs of the kosher consumer Pic-N-Pay’s cooked foods section along with frozen foods, gourmet condiments, and more, make it a one-stop shopping center for its customers.

                          Today Pic-N-Pay continues to provide the community with quality glatt kosher meats at reasonable prices.

                    I hope that there are no lines - more for me :) Why they don't shop there is their problem. I have had no problems with them so far. In fact the last time that I had a bbq, everyone just loved the rib steaks. I am sure that most of it was due to my son-in-law's grilling skills. I tend to grill too long.

                    I can't quite figure it out too. Supersol, for example, is now selling chicken cutlets, family pack for $2.99/lb, limit 3. I picked up three yesterday and plan on buying more depending on how much room I can free up in my chest freezer and depending on how much meat (rib steaks, and brisket) I buy this Tuesday from Pic-N-Pay.

                      as far as kashrus is concerned, since yesterday i have been doing extensive research as to whether i can rely on this hashgacha. i came to the conclusion that i can trust the hashgacha. i did not just decide to go with it because of the prices. i cannot recommend it to anyone, because i am not a posek. all i am saying is that i did my research and i feel that i can trust them.

                      okay, so here's the details. i went tonight and BOY!!! did i get a good deal, the following is a list of wha i bought:

                      2 family packs of flanken (3 thick cut strips in each pack)
                      3 packs of marrow bones (4 in each)
                      2-1/2 lbs ground beef
                      1-1/2 lbs ground veal
                      1 5.2 lb 1st cut brisket
                      1 3.4 lb 1st cut brisket
                      1 4.7 lb 1st cut brisket corned beef
                      2 lb skirt steak

                      after i came home i did the math and figured out that if i had bought this all at the normal prices in a place like brachs or gourmet glatt, the total would have been in the neighborhood of $250-$300. the total that i spent was.....

                      $113.95

                      WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                        through your research, what did you find out in terms of why people don't hold by it?

                        side question, why didnt you buy any of those gorgeous whole chickens?

                        they had whole chickens 1.89lp, not a crazy price, but to see the chickens, they were huge, and they were beautiful

                            This ad was in the Hewlett/Woodmere Pennysaver that is included in Sunday's Newsday. Pick-N-Pay does not advertise in this suplement weekly, obviously since they are in Brooklyn, but I guess they get their share of five towns customers. I also believe that they deliver once a week to the 5 towns, Wednesday, I believe. I wish they would post their weekly ads online. Maybe "thefivetowns.com" could include their ads on their excellent web site.

                            Anyway, the ad was true! I went to them today (or should I say yesterday, Tuesday) and spent $200. I bought 8 thick cut rib steaks, ranging from 1 1/4lb to 2lb @6.99/lb. I bought 5 1st cut briskets, ranging in weight from 3 1/3 to 5lb for $4.99/lb(!!) and 3 family packs of flanken @4.99/lb. They looked nice and fresh. Store was busy with plenty of stock. As soon as I cleaned out the brisket a lady behind me asked them where the briskets are and they right away brought out more. There were quite a few people with yarmulkas there. Amazing how much meat I bought for the price of two meals out with the Mrs.

                            The freezer in my frig (a 27cf unit) and my chest freezer are now full so I should be able to ride out the Rubashkin fallout for a while (hopefully).

                            I received over shabbos the Hewlett/Woodmere Pennysaver and Pik-N-Pay still has goodies for this week.

                            Fresh Turkey $2.69/lb (available thru 11/25) – Not spectacular, but if you want fresh not frozen this may be the lowest. (I plan of buying frozen for $1.99 from Keyfood)
                            Glatt rib steaks $6.99/lb
                            1st cut brisket $5.89/lb(!)
                            Flanken $5.39/lb
                            Chicken breast $1.99/lb
                            Chickens $1.89/lb
                            Frozen chicken cutlets $2.99/lb
                            Breast of veal $3.99/lb
                            2nd cut snow white veal chops $5.99/lb ($8.99 for 1st cut)

                            For Monday & Tues only
                            Chinese beef Spare Ribs $1.99/lb
                            Ground Chuck Chopmeat $1.99/lb

                            I had the brisket this shabbos, excellent! I don’t quite know if I wound up saving money buying all the meat that I did last week, since I would have had chicken instead, but I had guests and they enjoyed it and I have lots of leftovers since it was quite a large piece and we had other chicken choices as well.

                                marty, can we count on you to tell us what the weekly specials are?

                                how can i get the pennysaver?

                                  It is included in the Sunday Newsday. The Pennysaver says on it "Hewlett/Woodmere" so it is a very specific insert. I wonder if they have a different one for Cedarhurst and/or Lawrence and if Pik-N-Pay advertisises in it too.

                                  As long as Pik-N-Pay places their ad and as long as it is not available online and as long as the ads have good prices I have no problem posting it here for Chowhounders to see and save some money.

                                    Indeed we do... but isn't there a way to automate this? How's about...

                                    Marty B: Stick with Pic 'n Pay. Even though many people (including yours truly) wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole, others do enjoy the bargains there and are comfortable with the hashgacha.

                                    Berel: Your assignment is to do Super Sol. There should be a way to automate your task... can some sort of handheld device be used to scan the UPC (Universal Prouct Code) stripes from each product and upload the prices into a spreadsheet that can henceforth be uploaded to Chowhound?

                                    Kiddush Hopper: Go ahead... take Kosher Kingdom by the horns. Please transmit an hourly report on the the homemade pizza price *and hours of operation* for the rest of us. Do let us know how many "greeters" meet you at the door (surprise major shoppings at 2:00 am or 3:00 would be nice) and how many employees wearing sharp Kosher Kingdom logo aprons and fleece jackets appear in each aisle to offer you assistance.

                                    I'll take Brach's; while that kosher shopping destination continues to lose the award for cleanliness [if you haven't had occasion to use the bathroom there, DON'T], it most certainly continues to win the award hands down for the best late night 'hock.'

                                    That leaves Gourmet Glatt and Kosher World (and Key Food and Foodtown and Stop and Shop and...) Any takers for those?

                                    For any people who don't live or work near the Five Towns of Long Iland, New York, sorry to bore you with all of this (but consider yourself lucky!)

                                        When a store is there and nobody goes, there is a reason. there are any number of reliable hechshers and if they could, they would get one.
                                        btw. what does chabad trained mean? I want to know what he does NOW.

                                          >> " ... and nobody goes ..."

                                          Pik-N-Pay is quite busy whenever I go there! Certainly more crowed than the meat section of Gourmet Glatt or Supersol. Brachs usually has quite a bit of traffic in the meat section. I don't know how Pin-N-Pay's traffic is compared to other Brooklyn meat stores though, I can only comment compared to the 5 towns stores.

                                            This week in the FIVE TOWNS Pennysaver, there's a 2-page spread listing Kosher Kingdom's prices. Interestingly, a coupon states that there's a 5% discount on all NON-SALE items when shopping on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of this week. (I guess this means that we had better get to the check-out register before midnight of Friday morning!) I'm sure that the coupon could be applied to meat and poultry, which looked very good and competitively priced to me. Competition is wonderful for the (kosher) consumer (like duh) because also this week there's a widely-available coupon for $10 off all shopping at Gourmet Glatt when purchasing at least $100 (my experience has been that it includes all sale items). WoW! Perhaps people actually SHOULD come down from Toronto to shop in the Five Towns.

                                              Sounds like you have some great deals in the US on kosher meat. I live in Toronto but will probably take a drive down to NY state in the next few months. Any recommendations not too far (between Buffalo and Rochester area) to fill up a cooler?

                                                There's a kosher butcher in Buffalo that my husband used to shop at. He went to school there, and would call the butcher in advance to tell him what he wanted.

                                                  That sounds good. Do you know the name/number of the butcher? Are they open on Sundays?

                                                    He doesn't remember the butcher's info (he hasn't been there for few years). But, he does remember that it was the only kosher butcher in the buffalo area. The owner prepared cooked food for him as well (buffalo wings, chicken nuggets)

                                                  Just remember . . . these extremely low prices at Pik-n-Pay are only enjoyed by those who accept the hashgacha, which doesn't seem to be the majority of the shomer kashrut/frum community. Those who do are welcome to it, but not all kosher meat here is that cheap, and there are many of us paying more because our rabbaim do not feel this is an acceptable hashgacha.

                                                    Why do they not feel that it is a respectable hashgacha?

                                                      I know absolutely nothing of this store other than the discussion here. However, I would direct you to discussion in this thread back in the November 10-11 range. Or, ask your local Orthodox rabbi. If he says it's good, then go with it.

                                                        the problem with asking your local orthodox rabbi, is that he has probably never heard of this hashgacha, because they are a small time operation, compared to the big guys.

                                                        if that is the case, the answer your rav SHOULD give you is "i dont know, ive never heard of them, so i cannot say yes or no.

                                                        the answer most rabbi's give (for the exact same reason) is, "no you should not buy from there"

                                                        my rav gave me the first answer, so i did the research myself, by going there, seeing there operation and speaking to the mashgiach. if a rav tells you it is no good, because he doesnt know, he is not doing the right thing, in my opinion

                                                          My Rav would not say to avoid it; he would advise me to ask another Rav who is up on most of the hechsherim, even the small time ones in Brooklyn. This other Rav is a Queens rav who also works for the OU-kashrus division. If anyone who does shop at this place would tell me the name of the hashgacha, I can see if this other Rav knows of it (based on a list I have of the hechsharim he is familiar with).

                                                      Just how much more would a mashgiach from an "an acceptable hashgacha" get paid than the two that Pik-N-Pay has to effect the prices to such an extent, to almost double for some items, like brisket or flanken.

                                                        I assume prices reflect how much the wholesale meat costs, far more than what the hashgacha costs. When supposedly kosher meat is so cheap, I would wonder why.

                                                          it is not only because of their cheap hechsher. they also do their own shechita at their plant in NJ. all these things keep the costs very low

If you have a meat grinder you can save a bundle on ground chicken since for some reason there is a high premium being charged on grinding it for you. As an example Gourmet Glatt is selling, as a special yet, $5.49/lb for ground chicken. I dont quite know why it should cost more than a few pennies for them to do the grinding, after all prices are quite low for ground chuck, so to grind the cutlets should not add much more to the price.

                                                                          They did not have an ad this past week. I decided to not do a weekly update. I think the message got across that they have excellent meat prices and their prices have been relatively stable. Not long ago my son-in-law bought a standing rib roast for $5.99/lb Very satisfied. I still have huge amounts in my chest freezer so I am not in a meat shopping mode.

                                                                          I did notice in the latest Hewlett/Woodmere Sunday Pennysaver that Supersol has Chicken Breast family packs for $1.79/lb. They are also selling Family Pack Chicken Cutlets for $3.49/lb and Fresh Pullets for $1.89/lb I am sure that these are Kosher For Pesach so an excellent opportunity to save some money. I did stop by Glatt Kosher Kingdom yesterday and noticed that they are charging $2.79/lb for their chickens for comparison.

                                                                                            The key with brining (and with Kosher meat in general) is to try to get out any additional salt leftover from kashering. I recommend loading some ice and water into glass or metal bowl (plastic can be used but you want to keep the meat cold for safety's sake); submerge the meat and massage it a bit-this dislodges any larger pieces of salt and also dissolves salt stuck in the meat. Put the bowl and meat under cold running water. Rinse the meat and then put on a plate with paper towels to dry.

                                                                                            You've probably minimized the remaining salt at this point.

                                                                                            Now you are ready to brine. For poultry 12 hours is nice-more than 24 is way too much.

                                                                                            If you are still concerned you can reduce the amount of salt used but not so much that flavor is lost. Brining keeps the meat full of flavor, moist and helps break down connective tissue (tenderizing).

                                                                                            I use either veggie or chicken stock (Tabatchnik I think makes a nice kosher pour in stock) or chicken bouillon. I add in all sorts of spices, a lot of kosher salt and include a lot of paprika for poultry. I simmer it all up and when it has heated and everything has dissolved, I shock it with ice to help cool it quickly.

                                                                                            When safe, I put the brine into the refrigerator to get the temperature below 40 degrees (again, food safety).

                                                                                            Once cooled, I submerge the poultry or beef into the brine. I cover with plastic wrap and put on a cover if using a pot and back into the fridge.

                                                                                            I usually smoke the turkey or beef in either an offset wood/charcoal smoker or else in my cheap Brinkmann electric smoker. Either way, I am cooking slow and low until fully cooked.

                                                                                            For turkey or poultry I take pareve margarine and slice little patties which I stuff under the skin anywhere I can. This makes for golden skin and juicy flavor above and beyond the brine and keeps the outside from cooking too fast. Olive oil or other oil can be used.

                                                                                            After 3 hours I wrap the meat or poultry in foil to ensure it stays moist. I sometimes put it in a roaster pan.

                                                                                            No smoker? Don't worry-you can roast the brined meat. Start with a roaster pan and cook at 250 degrees (225 in a convection oven); if your oven has a roast mode, do the same. Keep the pan open for the first 3 hours and open the oven every hour to baste the poultry or meat in the juices after turning it over each time. If it's dried in the pan it is cooking too quickly. Lower the heat. You can also add some apple juice to the pan (just a little to cover the bottom and add moisture).

                                                                                            After three hours add some more liquid and cover the roasting pan creating a tent above the meat or poultry. The tent should be sealed all the way around the pan so moisture cannot escape but again, not so tight that the foil is right on the meat/poultry and loose enough to allow convection of the steam around the meat).

                                                                                            Enjoy. It's actually far less work than it sounds and you will have delicious, moist turkey/chicken or beef.

                                                                                              during the cold cold winter, sometimes on a screaming hot skillet or grill pan

                                                                                              ive marinated it at times in a combo of garlic soy sauce and dijon mustard or a drop of olive oil, lime juice, garlic and cumin

                                                                                              but really i dont think it needs the marination, a little bit of garlic salt, or some salt and pepper, or my favorite, the monterey chicken or steak spices (both of which are carried at costco and bjs and are fantastic on everything) and a hot hot grill, and its good stuff

                                                                                              this is all making me hungry, maybe ill go get some of those turkey chops tomorrow

I have neglected to mention in my posts that Costco (at least here in Lawrence) sells frozen Empire chickens for $1.89/lb and has been doing so for quite a while. I mention this because chicken prices here in the 5 towns have been spiraling out of control as of late. So here you have a quality chicken option for a decent and consistant price.

                                                                                                the Cornish hens are very tasty, but my point was you can't compare apples to oranges. my wife has been been buying some huge chickens that I either rotisserie or roast in the oven. there's much more meat on them then the Cornish hens, so I don't think it's fair to compare the per lb price.

                                                                                                MartyB will have give you the Pic N pay prices as I don't shop there.

                                                                                                  Will do tonight, not much in ad this week. I actually went there yesterday. 1st cut brisket price plummeted from a yom tov "special” of $8.99/lb to a nice price of $5.99/lb. They had lots of nice ones. I bought one and will buy more since I plan on going again Friday when I pick up mom for shabbos.

                                                                                                  They were selling ground meat for $1.99/lb, looked pale compared to the others, ground neck & skirt and lean shoulder so I couldn’t bring myself to buy it. By the way, does such a fatty cut make for good hamburgers or meatballs? Over pesach I made meatballs with the ground neck & skirt as well as the lean shoulder. The ground neck and skirt one was clearly the superior one in taste, as it is when I make hamburgers. Does that imply that if I go one notch lower (i.e. higher in fat content) that the taste will be even better?

                                                                                                  1. re: MartyB

                                                                                                    Fat always makes it taste better, and is usually cheaper. How much was the ground neck and skirt per pound? Inmy area ground meat was going for $5.99 per pound, and it's not that great.

                                                                                                    1. re: njkosher

                                                                                                  All that I know is that we talking about an establishment in the heart of Flatbush, 40 years in business, advertising themselves as Glatt. If there was something major wrong they would have been run out of town a long time ago. As far as I am concerned they have stood the test of time and I would rather say "why do the other stores charge so much?" I see non kosher chickens going for $.89/lb and lower so whole chicken for $1.69/lb sounds ok to me. As to why Gourmet Glatt charges $2.79/lb that bothers me more.

                                                                                                  1. re: MartyB

                                                                                                    Perhaps MartyB would like to do us (and himself!) a favor if he would ask the butchers where they get their shechted animals from? We know the store has their own butchers and are "self-hechshered" but who do they rely on to "shecht" for them?

MartyB has done a favor to some people by posting the prices. They are Glatt Kosher!!!!!!!!!!!!. If you dont trust or dont agree with the hashgacha, then dont go there, no one is forcing you to. Anyone who goes there has obviously done their own due diligence, and does not care what you think.

The same problem that the characters of the Wizard of Oz had, the Scarecrow needed a diploma, the Tinman a testimonial, the Lion a badge, and Pik-N-Pay a kashrus symbol. Everyone this day and age is hiding behind a symbol, look at the problem that Streitz had this year because the did not have a hasgacha with a symbol behind it.

                                                                                                          I suggest a tablet with a "Pey" in each side of the tablet (get it? "P"ik-N-"P"ay) with a crown over the tablet and over the crown, in hebrew Kosher and under the tablet "L'Mehadrin". Then everyone will be happy.

I always assumed that bottoms were the cheapest while the tops (breasts) were the more expensive ones. Brachs as of late is useless as far as meat/chicken, they have very few sales in that department and high prices. Their chicken special is still te best in (5) town.

                                                                                                                Yeah . . . what did you pay for your house? Is it wider than 18 feet and longer than 34 feet? I'm quite happy to live in the NY area, but I know very well that we pay less for some things and far more for others. Those who envy us our low kosher food prices probably pay far less than we do for other things, like housing or commuting costs . . . and get far more for their dollar.

                                                                                                                  If I had enough money to buy a house...I live actually closer to the Maryland state line in treyf PA. It's a major excursion to get meat other than in a few stores where we can buy frozen Empire poultry and Hebrew national Franks.
                                                                                                                  As for commuting. Metro DC fares are ridiculous and the subway system while clean isn't open 24/7 and is restricted compared to the extensive NY subway system. I have to first drive 45 minutes to get to Frederick, MD and take the Amtrak to get into Gaithersburg to catch the metro to Silver Spring.
                                                                                                                  I was born and lived in Brooklyn until I married and moved away. Lived in the Flatbush area near Midwood HS, so I miss the ease and freedom to live a truly Jewish and kosher life
                                                                                                                  Commuting sucks outside of NYC. You have to drive everywhere and with gas prices...
                                                                                                                  Yes, real estate may be cheaper and I say maybe outside of DC, say and the wealthier suburbs, but then you have to factor in the cost of driving everywhere; trying to find kosher food or restaurants - non-existent except for one or two down in Silver Spring and DC.
                                                                                                                  Please, be grateful for the ability to live a kosher life without going on expeditions!
                                                                                                                  For poor Jews like my husband and me, the cost of keeping kosher and observant is high.
                                                                                                                  I was reticent about my feelings re. access to kosher food:
                                                                                                                  I would sell my soul to have a choice of close by places to shop at!

I tried all three varieties, chuck, neck & skirt and shoulder and find that the neck & skirt make the best burgers and meatballs. I will report back the current prices.

                                                                                                                Although I have lots of options in the 5 Towns I too am envious of the Brooklyn boys with their vast array of kosher options. I find a chest freezer to be a must; this allows me to buy lots of meats and keeps my meat costs to a reasonable level.

Frustrating since they were shutting off the lights so I did a real fast shopping. Picked up 10 rib steaks @$6.99/lb, two packages of chopped meat, neck & skirt @$3.99/lb, 4 packages of ground chicken breasts, beautifully packaged at $2.99/lb!! (Goes locally for $4.99/lb+).

                                                                                                                  The ground chuck went for $2.99/lb while the ground shoulder went for $5.59/lb.

The price spread between kosher vs. non-kosher is vast, Pik-N-Pay's prices shows the possibility of finding a pricing point between the two extremes if the proper cost controls are employed. Costco shines in that department but they have to be careful since enormous pressure can be brought upon the supervising agency, whoever that may be, by the local stores, since the meat department is a major cash "cow" with extremely high profit margins.

                                                                                                                    1. re: berel

May mean nothing, but I sure hope that Costco gets more into the kosher meat market. The kosher prices are really getting out of line and an outfit like Costco could help bring some price stabilization, at least in the 5 towns vicinity. What I expect from them in the raw meat department would be some nice, Costco sized, family packs, nicely packaged and trimmed for a great, and stable, price. The comment that my son-in-law overheard may lead one to believe that they may get into the cooked food arena as well, fried chickens?

This week Gourmet Glatt is selling as a "special" ground chicken for $5.49/lb!! When I was at Pik-N-Pay I noticed customers with shopping carts filled to the top with meat, something that I do not see at Brachs, Gourmet Glatt. or Supersol.

Great prices, but..........the stored smelled less than clean. Advertised frozen chicken cutlets were being sold defrosted! I wasn't happy with the veal chops in the case and asked for thicker ones at the sale price. Only those in case from day before on special. since "we have to get rid of them" And the chickens? Filthiest that I have ever seen. We still went to Lawrence/Cedarhurst to fill in everything not available in Brooklyn. Even with great prices I doubt that we will be going back.

Pik-n-Pay is Cheap quality. and to quote my late grandmother (can't say Bubbe as we're German Jews on that side) CHEAP{ IS DEAR!

                                                                                                                                Most of these prepak Kosher markets have poor quality meats and no service, just bad attitude. There isn't a butcher there, just meat cutters, as the meat is now boxed beef, nothing comes on the hoof any more.

                                                                                                                                Unfortunately, those looking always for the lowest price accept poor quality and those who want good quality can no longer get it. The Rubashkins of the world ruined the kosher meat industry. The man in the meat market today wouldn't know an inside skirt from an outside skirt if it was staring him in the face.

                                                                                                                                I always like to buy primal cuts and 'butcher' them down myself. I like a thick chop, my wife likes thin. I grind all my own chop meat. My mother taught me never to buy preground beef. This way I can vary the texture and the fat content according to the end product. Meatballs or meatloaf is extra lean (93%), Burgers on the grill 85% or they'd be tasteless.
                                                                                                                                Seeing a pkg marked ground chuck scares me, I want to know the real cuts.

                                                                                                                                1. re: bubbyrebecka

I usually buy brisket, thick cut rib steak or rib roast, ground neck and skirt chopped meat and chicken cutlets (the $3.99/lb ones, not the family packs).

                                                                                                                                    in terms of meat, theyre always more than willing to give me thicker or thinner pieces of things that are on sale and their chickens that have been on sale ranging from 1.49 to 1.89 for the last couple of months have been way way cleaner than the feathery stuff i end up with when u go to gg or brachs

The place is nothing to look at, but I have never had a problem with asking them to give me bigger roasts, or steaks. You want fancy, you have to pay for it.
                                                                                                                                      Never had a problem with their fresh chicken cutlets, which are way cheaper than anywhere else by at least $2 -3 per pound.
                                                                                                                                      Good luck to you if you can spend the time to grind your own meat, but most of us cannot. To pay over $5 for ground meat is obscene, and as long as it looks OK, I think it is par with anything else out there.
                                                                                                                                      The problem is that we have all become conditioned to thinking kosher must be pricey, so when Pic and Pay comes along, people want to slam it.
                                                                                                                                      Why can they charge $22 for a bulk package of Meal Mart hot dogs, when everyone else is charging so much more.

                                                                                                                                  Chicken cut up - $2.29/lb

                                                                                                                                  Chicken breasts - $2.99/lb

                                                                                                                                  Chuck roast - $6/lb
                                                                                                                                  Rib eye (I did not see any, but Berel did) - $12/lb.

                                                                                                                                  These are in addition to the pastrami, corned beef and salami (all Meal Mart) that they carry.

                                                                                                                                  Pik-N-Pay has nothing to worry about, but this is a nice addition to the 5 towns offering, in particular the $2.29/lb for chicken is a good price by 5 towns standards. The chickens are nicely packaged Empire and the ground chuck and chuck roast were nicely vacuum packed.

I also remember seeing nicely vacuum packed ground meat at Brachs, when I go to them today I will see how much they charge. I always thought that when something is vacuum packed it will hold better then one packed by simply wrapping them in plastic as done in you local butcher.

One woman was telling her husband that the prices were cheaper than Gourmet Glatt's (not hard to do). I wish them luck since if the kosher meat section does well then, I assume, they will carry an even larger selection. What would be nice would be a FAMILY pack of thick cut rib steaks!

I went t visit mom today and to drop of my daughter in Brooklyn for a bus to camp, so I decided to step into Pik-N-Pay. They had the most beautiful thick cut rib steaks. I bought 4 shopping bags of it! Almost cleaned out the display!

I thought that it must've been a typo, as other than Pic 'n' Pay which is controversial, to say the least (nobody we know would use the place; hence the too-good-to-be-true low prices), other glatt kosher rib eye steak - bone-in or boneless - generally goes for more than double that price! But wait... there's more... the ad also stated that homemade (and tasty) dips, including fresh olive dip, techina, chumus, a fresh red pepper dip that was out of this world, etc. were each 99 cents for a standard 7 oz container! Of course I sped to Landau's (which I had though of as having high prices but some interesting and unusual products not available anywhere else); I bought one of each dip (freshly home-made for 99 cents... and delicious to boot!) and I loaded up on the convenient small packages of boneless rib eye steaks. Oddly, right next to the boneless steaks sat packages of bone-in ribsteaks... at more than double the price! Like what's with that? I could only imagine that someone must have ordered these steaks (a caterer for a simcha?) and not needed them, or too many were produced. The quality seemed excellent, and all in our family gobbled them up and couldn't believe how tasty they were, especially for that low, low price. This week we used them for our cholent, and they were fab... compare $4.99 per pound to the outrageously high price of flanken these days! I can't stop singing the praises of Landau's Kosher Market. I'll be back, I trust.

So far Brachs is asking $2.69/lb and Gourmet Glatt is at $3.39/lb. I doubt they will go under $2/lb maybe $2.39/lb since they have to be lower than Brach's everyday frozen Empire turkey prices but higher than everyone else. Stop&Shop is asking $1.99/lb and I am sure GG will be pricier than the majors. Anyway we shall see.

                                                                                                                                                                    Just came from Pik-N-Pay. Loaded up on Briskets. I also decided to take a chance on the marinated rib steaks @3.99/lb - at ~$5/steak could be a winner. I also bought ready made pastrami sandwiches packed 2 to a package on whole wheat buns for $3.99. My daughter and I had a pastrami lunch for $2/each, nice.

I hope they continue to have them for a while since I only bought 4 of them. Next time I will empty out the display.

                                                                                                                                                                        years ago, in the late 90s, hapisga had an outrageous house steak, their current house steak is good, but eh, this fairway steak reminded me of those old time hapisga steaks

                                                                                                                                                                        it may not be 4.99, but 8.99 is a great price, and theyre actually properly cut down and cleaned, which hasnt been my experience at pic n pay, whose steaks are very cheap, and decent, but nothign exciting

                                                                                                                                                                                      perfect example, i work in a hebrew school, a couple of weeks ago it was one of the kids bdays and the mom wanted to send something in, but the parents wanted to send someone in that was nut free
                                                                                                                                                                                      so i told her to try the bagel store (i think its called bageltown) on hempstead ave thats nut free and kosher, so she goes there, calls me from the store and asks me if something with strawberry is ok allergy wise, and is all excited
                                                                                                                                                                                      2 hours later he arrives at school with a box of cookies from another bakery that has a hashgacha that very few people accept, and thats not nut free, obviously i couldnt let him have, thank god ive gotten used to these things and i keep some stuff int he freezer at school,
                                                                                                                                                                                      anyway, i call the mom, and she says she was abt to pay, and then realized she didnt see a sign that it was glatt, so she left and went to this other bagel store, that 1- doesnt have a real reliable hashgacha, 2- im told serves turkey sandwiches as well, all of a kosher brand, but cut on the same slicer as their cheese and 3- is labeled glatt (eventhough neitehr their cream cheese nor their turkey are glatt)
                                                                                                                                                                                      this is an everyday occurence

This actually makes sense if one is outside of the NYC metropolitan area then Pik-N-Pay prices have no relevance to them and a thread entitled "meat prices" (which was the original intent) is misleading.

I bought it last time it was on sale and my husband really liked the flavor.

                                                                                                                                                                                  Lately its been Costco and Supersol. I haven't seen Pic-N-Pay advertise for a while. When I went to Gourmet Glatt this Friday they had a publication there called The Vues and I saw their ad there so I thought that I would pass it on.

                                                                                                                                                                                  I actually stocked up on chickens from Supersol for what I thought was an excellent price. They had chicken breasts for $1.79/lb and nice large chickens (4 - 4 1/2 pounders) for $1.59/lb. Not as good as Pic-N-Pay but I was too lazy to shlep to Brooklyn for the difference. I will probably be going in to Brooklyn to pick up my shmura matzos from Boro Park so I will probably go to stock on the 1st cut Briskets, I only have two left.

                                                                                                                                                                                  Costco still rocks for the $1.79/lb for the Empire Turkeys. I just saw Foodtown advertise them for a sale(?) price of $2.99/lb!
