Yeah, my brother got 2 of the three packs for this weekend. I think they weighed 24lbs and he paid $40. A bunch of meat on them and thicker, took a bit longer compared to the racks at the local supermarket. I will get the Sam's ones from now on.
in a pinch I will buy from Costco, etc(meat seemed ok)., but I prefer a couple local butcher shops I have access to. One had K.C. trimmed spares this past week for $1.67/lb. Price isnt alway that good, but I prefer to give my $$$ to local folks, even if it may cost a little more most tof the time.
I prefer Sam's meat to any grocery store. We don't have a local butcher where I live, there used to be several. The superstores have driven the mom and pop markets out of business. I really like there beef, they cut steaks an inch thick and it's all choice cut. I've caught baby back ribs on sale once for $13 for a pack of three full slabs, I loaded up on those.
I do shop alot at sam's for my meat. there are several sam's clubs in Jacksonville (about 8) but I will only buy meat from 2 of them. I'm just picky I guess. I do go the the bucther from time to time. Our sam's had ribs for 1.48 lb saturday an i got a few racks 9
