My Dh is a butcher and would know the answer to this (Im guessing it depends on size?) but Im clueless. He is in bed. I can ask him if he gets up or in the morning.

I bought a "smaller" one last week and it was $12.73, so about 6.25 pounds. I'd say they ranged from 6-10 pounds. Most stores will slice it free if you ask then you have center cut pork chops. I sliced this one myself and got 3 packages of chops, 1 roast, and used the rest for pulled pork sandwiches they day after I bought it. So 5 meals (and 1 leftover sandwich for my lunch the next day) for my family of 6 (although 1 was missing when we had the sandwiches) from a $13.00 piece of meat.

I think that is a great deal. I get them at that price and they are normally about $16.xx. So, probably near 8 lbs.

I asked DH. He said it depends on the size. The smaller ones are about $10 on sale and the larger are $17 on sale right now at FC. He said he couldnt give an exact weight cause they are different.
