The packers are always EXCEL brand.

One more thing our sams always has is chuck roasts. You can usually get 2 nice roasts for about 18.00.
Man I haven't seen chuck roasts for squat either. Really irritates the crap out of me too. I'm going to be harassing these butchers like mad now. Politely of course, but HARASSING ALL THE SAME!

One of my wife's mocking names for me is actually, "No butt." I'm apparently a Hank Hill in my own way. Don't need any weird butt pads though... yet.

So I would actually argue I am in DESPERATE need for butts. Padding, smoking, and sausage making wise. I'm running low on my damn Italian Sausage, and I'm out of breakfast sausage, and I want to make up some ground pork just to have laying around for some cabbage rolls too. It's very disheartening. I got hooked on those two packs, and then they go and yank them off their shelves.

I have both memberships but only keep Sams because it is very close to my home for last minute items.

Yeah I like Costco's policies a whole lot more, but it's still a drive. I get most of my produce from Sprouts these days though, their prices cannot be beaten. Just insane how good their sales are. I love that farking place. Seafood I get from Viet Hoa and 99 Ranch most of the time. If I suck it up and drive into 'actual' Houston I'll also go to Bubba's because I used to live around there, and I like the owner.

My briskets, pork butts, ribs, and all chicken types I typically get from Sam's. I used to get my ground beef there too, but now I grind my own proteins because it's so much fun, and I can control the spices, etcetera.

Costco doesnt carry bone-in butts.

I purchased a package of butts from Sam's last week and I was not impressed. In fact, the last three times I have bought butts from Sam's they have been pretty crappy hunks of meat. I honestly doubt I will buy any more there unless I can see some changes in quality.

The butts that you bought that you were unhappy with. Where they Smithfield?

I have never had a bad one, but I am sure it can happen.
