For the last few years, I have been usingonly John Morrell "premium trim" spares. We like them bcause they're always meaty, and if you pick and choose you can always find 3 1/2 and downs. On the smaller slabs, cutting through the brisket bone is a cinch. We have alot of trouble finding spares of this caliber under any other brand. What we don't like is the usual $2.50/lb.. From time to time Albertson's will have them as a sub for the on sale cheap ribs, and we stock up @ $1.29 or so. Anybody else got tips on where or what brand for good lean 3 1/2 and down spares?
