I have to do some BB ribs for Sunday, and was really disappointed at Sam's C. the price was almost $3.00 and the quality was really off. Labeled "Loin Back" all the cyropak had 1 ok rack and the other two were just not good. What was bad: - the size, the tapered small end the ribs are tiny, only about 11/2", I have seen them small but not that small, of course the other end was proportionally small. - Fat or marbling, all the ribs had hardly any fat or marbling. - Rib curvature, normally the BBribs I have purchased either from Sams or Costco, the ribs are fairly curved, these were almost flat like spares. I don't know if that means anything, or if they were cut on a different spot, not sure if good or bad. - Of course cost. On the cost issue, I decided I would go to Costco, they are about a mile apart. Exactly the same problem, it was as if they bought they're ribs from the same packer however the label brand was different. Worse the cost was almost 40cents higher. Back to Sams.... Finally since Walmart is next to Costco, I check there, the price was outrageous, enough said. I guess I don't have Ronp's magic I can find a deal touch. If it hadn't been so late in the day, I would have made a run to the meat/butcher mart, more expensive but quality is always great. Any how, they are rubbed, wrapped, in the fridge, getting ready for some sweet smoke.
