    Hello All,

    Who has the Highest Quality Meat Beef/Pork you can buy?

    A quick search came up Lobels in New York and also I saw Snake River Farms. I just did a brief search

    If one wanted to live the high life if only for a day. Or is this a waste of $$?

    What are you looking for as far as meat.  You can do a search for "A5 Grade Kobe Beef" and find places selling ribeyes for over $100/lb.  

    Never had any beef that fancy.  Have had 1/2 blood Wagyu, best steaks I've ever had.  Have to believe full blood Wagyu or true Kobe beef is even better.

    I like Ribeye and the Boss lady likes Filet.

    I also want a brisket and maybe Pork ribs

    Free advertising for Lobels? LOL

    The store just sells the meat; they don't raise the pig, cow.

    Iberico de belotta pork is the best I had. Not talking about their Jamon only, but cooked pork cuts. Mangalitsa is also outstanding. I wish I had a source nearby so I can treat myself now and then.

    As far as specific sites/companies I have never bought meat on line.  But you can search for Kobe Beef, Wagyu Beef (which looking at it is what Snake River sells and I know there are others as well).  A5 I believe is the highest grade Japanese give for marbling.

    As far as pork, I like Berkshire (which is also what Snake River seems to sell).  There are a number of sites I have seen that sell Berkshire pork.  I have never had Mangalizta, but what I have read seems amazing.
