I apologize I thought you meant success in competitions..everytime Ive picked them up the middle rack is junk but they will work in a pinch.

And say a person had two 6th's, a 10th, and maybe 3 non walks with the ribs what would your response had been?

Commercial supply of meat is based upon weight per rack, you can order cases that are graded based upon the size of the rack. If it matters that much, yes, a butcher can break up cases, based upon ordering a more expensive, graded, non-cryovac product. There are a few butchers out there that already do this for teams that compete.

Exactly the same..people measure success differently..2 6th's a 10th and some non walks..3 top ten calls in a row would be a success with my current state of ribs and would have won us one contest already this year..how was your overall in those contests?..if you won or RGC'd any of those three I'd say it was a success..winning and walking consistently in any category is successful to me..did you use the 3 pack to get those calls?

I just used those as an example. They were just made up. Your original question seemed to assume success was a was "walks" or a "GC". So I wanted to see how less than that stacked up in your mind.

You assumed correctly..to me competition BBQ success=walking at and winning contests..that's my opinion

We buy the 3 packs from Costco and haven't had too many issues with them. I've actually had more "bad" racks from RD than I have from Costco.

I'm competing this weekend and I plan to use the 3 pack again. I'm hoping to come back and say I walked :)

I was middle of the pack for my first comp using these ribs.

same here. I've always seen 3packs at costco.

Got some yesterday and all three look pretty good. Smoked one today and it was very meaty and good. Other two are in the freezer in Food Saver wrapping.
