I found a new source for our comp ribs. We'll be ordering from D'Artagnan meats. www.dartagnan.com (http://www.dartagnan.com) They sell organic meats and have very good shipping rates. Like I said I'm ordering our spare ribs from them, but I see that they also have waygu beef. Also duck, chicken, etc for just regular grilling needs. I'll be getting my first ribs from them tomorrow (ordered yesterday)Just thought I'd share this with my fellow Brethren.

Curious to see how they turn out. $60 for two racks? Please post a review of them!

Wow that is a pretty penny for ribs. Definitely let us know how they turn out. I know Berkshire can be expensive and wonder if it is noticeably different.

Ouch...they better. Be some really sweet ribs for that price. Interested what they will look like.

No shoulder or brisket though, guess they haven't discovered BBQ clients yet.

They do have boneless butts and brisket flats. They aren't on the site, but if you contact them they have them. Those were two questions I asked them. I haven't asked yet to see if they have chicken thighs,

They are primarily known for duck items like foie gras and breasts.

Sounds like a waste of money to me. It's all about how you cook. I buy comp meat from Walmart.

I agree it's about the cook. Feel free to not take the free tip I was providing for all

I'm not saying I would pay 60 bucks for two racks of ribs but I can tell you it aint ALL about the cook. Good meat vs. okay meat IS the difference between getting your name called and not being called all other being equal.

Thanks for the K Train

It's $45 for 4 racks at RD and I got to go get them and dig through pack after to pack to find some that aren't wrecked. $60 for 2 rack if they are solid is not that bad. Meat aint the place to pinch pennies.

Got two racks today, got two more on the way. The one's I got today look pretty solid. Good marbling and fairly straight bones. Got a comp next weekend so I'll report back on how they cook.

I have never been disappointed in their meats, anything I have had has been very good.

One of the great by products of being close to the Hudson Valley Foie Gras farm is I can usually find their duck breasts at the local supermarket.

Dude, that's awesome. I really mean that. If it works, great. I have also walked with meat from a grocery store. If you don't care about a post why interject to be negative? I was simply posting to share for those interested. You're not so move on

Sorry should have worded that different. Didn't mean to be a jerk. Just trying to say you don't have to spend a lot of money on your meat to win.

No worries. Didn't mean to come off as one myself.

So I cooked the ribs from Dartagnan this weekend at the Barbayq in Annapolis MD. We walked 7th out of 55. They looked great when I opened them and cooked great also. Very happy.

On my iPhone, but the lighting in our carport does them no justice.
