Re: Where to buy meat
I bought spare ribs at Costco but when I was back in Texas I used to buy my brisket and pork butt at Sam's Club. I hear some buy meat at Palace Meat in downtown SLC. Looks like they have good prices. You have to order ahead of time and they cut to order. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.palacemeat.com/default.html">http://www.palacemeat.com/default.html</a><!-- m -->. I have bought meat at Snider Brothers but they are in Holliday. Not sure what is in Utah County. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.sniderbrosmeats.com/home.asp">http://www.sniderbrosmeats.com/home.asp</a><!-- m -->. My thought if it is for home cooking or practice stick with Costco or Sam's Club.

I'm a Sam's Club user for the most part, and check the supermarket adverts for specials, WalMart for chicken leg quarter 10# bags.

Re: Where to buy meat
I get most of my competition meat from Sunbow Distributing in Lindon. Their prices are comparable to Sams and Costco. Call them ahead of time and tell them what size butts and brisket you're looking for and they'll have it pulled when you get there.

Thanks all. Costco has been good for ribs, but no bone in pork butt. Lindon is nice and close. Thanks again bbq mama.

Re: Where to buy meat
If you are in Utah county keep your eyes on reams in Springville, you can talk to Matt Mendonsa in the butcher block there. He has had ribs and bone in butts at some very good prices. They do an early morning sale once in a while and have had bone in butts as low as .79 a Lb. :shock:

Re: Where to buy meat
What are you guys looking for when you buy ribs and such? I buy ribs at Smith's in WVC because it is close to my house and they seem to have deals often. Am I missing out by not looking at other meat sources?

Re: Where to buy meat
We got a good lesson a couple years ago from Mike Davis at Lotta Bull. Only buy brisket from the left side of the cow since he/she uses their right leg to lay down or stand up. Make sure you ask your butcher if he is selling you right or left brisket.

Re: Where to buy meat
The left or right handed brisket debate is one of several that bring amusement to BBQers suffering from winter cabin fever, there are also the great questions of fat side up or down and to foil or not to foil, or what charcoal is best, pellet poopers = BBQ or not?, these and other esoteric questions start to form some time after the first snow, and some believe that the occasional answer may be found then lost, then found again in the course of a hard long winter.

But when the spring arrives the answers get forgotten by one and all, and then by the end of the next fall / the start of the next winter, those wonderful questions rear themselves out of their graves and caves where they have hidden for six months, and plunge deep into the subconscious minds of those self same BBQers, to be pulled out again in the coldest parts of the year, to be pondered again by the folks that only started smoking in the quiet, (from the cabin fever questions point of view), months of the spring and summer.

Here's a pretty good brisket tutorial <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57882">http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showt ... hp?t=57882</a><!-- m -->

We go to Sunbow distributing in Lindon. We are getting them trained on competition types of meat. They do a good job there. Also Springville meats has some good meat as well.

That sure was good stuff!
