Thats good to hear man. You and me both, the only place i get my meat is Costco or quality butcher shops, i will not buy meat from Ralphs, Vons etc. Regarding Harmony farms, Ive gotten a few butts and Kobe burgers from them. Do you purchase the frozen stuff? i found that all the meat they have outside are frozen.

Lol I cant go into Ralphs anymore. I always buy fresh. As soon as he gets it in he calls me and I swing by. Whatever I cant cook within a few days I freeze it myself.

I didnt really like their service but one day we just **** sh!t and the rest is history. Once you get know them and they get to know you theyre pretty cool guys. Its father and his sons and theyre mostly in the back "buthchering" away. Family owned.

The meat guy said they get whatever comes in, in Prime grade, they don't order it. They did have Prime Chuck Roast @ $3.49 lb.

If any one is still finding them at their local Costco, please report where you find them. I was lucky enough to score 5 so far, 2 still in the freezer. Dang, they take up a lot of freezer space!

Only one of the three I have cooked was really great. I need to do better.

Good luck Prime Hunters! We will continue to look at the 3 or 4 different Costco stores that we frequent, and will put it here if we find any.
The costco on technology in Irvine had three in the case when I stopped in tonight after work. They also had prime chuck roast, tri tip, short ribs and sirloin roast. Two of the briskets managed to find their way into my cart again!

Default Costco Los Feliz

Wow...this thread is still alive.
Was at the Los Feliz Costco (about 6 miles south of the Burbank Costco) this afternoon and they had two prime packers in the area where they keep their prime cut meats.
What's crazy is that they were still $2.59/lb. while the choice flat in the main case was over $6/lb, IIRC.

I've not seen them in the marina location but I didn't check the prime area, that might be the call. Regarding Ralph's meat, I swore off that a few months ago. I just got tired of the low quality I wouldn't buy it at any price anymore it's just not worth it.

I was there tonight too, but didn't see any. I just looked where they usually were. Guess I must have missed em. That's quite a hike!

Still got one in the freezer though!!

My Costco (Fairfield, CA) has prime beef, but never brisket. In fact, they rarely have choice brisket and when they do, it's pathetic.

Envious of the SoCal peeps, though $7/lbs is a bit steep for prime brisket.

I'll beg to differ with you on Ralph's. The stores in upscale neighborhoods carry only Choice AND Prime beef, and their tri-tips are some of the best I've had.

My Costco (Dana Point) always carries prime brisket packers, but they do not carry bone-in pork butt :(
I actually got a prime brisket packer last weekend for $2.69/lb

The best I could do is find a 9# choice brisket packer for $3.99 lb here in Temecula (hour north of San Diego)
And same here on the pork butt only boneless
