What grade of meat are you buying currently? Are you buying select from your local grocery store or choice from Sams or Costco? If it is just select, well... get choice. If it is choice already, be prepared for high prices to get prime.

As for hamburger, my wife is under this crazy notion that 90% lean is better and that is all she'll buy. If you want an amazing burger, you need 80% or even better 70%. I would suggest you consider buying a 20# choice chuck roast at Costco and then grind it yourself.

Oh and IMve been extremely dissatisfied with the beef i got from Omaha Steaks a few years back. It was crap. Others said the same, there was a thread here. I would be careful of the internet places unless they are selling Prime grade.
