Arlin - yeah you look for the best.
In one of the BBQ books I've read - I think it was Paul Kirk's, he recommended that when you want to start competing, you make good friends with a butcher. Tell him what you need the meat for and convince him to let you look thru his supply. Might take some doing, or some free BBQ, but convince him. When I was picking up the briskets for the Jersey competetion, the butcher and I looked thru 20 racks of ribs. He had some nice stuff, but Phil had already bought them.
Don't rely on the cryovaced stuff.
But to be honest, the stuff that Costco sells is usually pretty damn good.
