They ship Matt - It comes very fresh and the shipping cost isnt bad. I've had it shipped and it arrived quickly and very cold!

Is it that much better than the Tyson you get from Sam's? Just curious as I'm preparing my battle plan to get ready for Weston this weekend.

If by better than Tyson you mean nice even pieces,good skin,not slimy and real fresh(no smell at all)..then yes is my answer..all kidding aside it's great stuff no doubt about it

Not bad stuff. The 4-packs in stores up here sell it for just over $5 so it is pricey.

How big are the pieces in the 4-packs that they ship? I'm asking only because the 4-packs on their website show the weight as 1lb. Since I'm usually looking for 4-packs closer to 2lbs, I don't want to be stuck with a bunch of small pieces.

I'm in Des Moines for the day with the Hy-Vee a block from my Hotel. I would love to buy a pack and see how easy it is to prep, but I have no way to cook it or get it home....Thanks for the heads up!

I don't think that anything with the name "smart" in it would mesh very well with my team's style.

Seriously though, I'd try it if there were a local retailer.

Don't care for it. Those always come with the wing-tip cut off (I've heard that's a delicacy in China?).

Matt, their website shows two places in Palm Springs that carries that brand.
I have a couple of places by me that I'm going to hit up...

Smart has organic and veg-fed. The veg-fed is cheaper than the organic. Main difference is in the treatment method during processing. I like it, for comps and for eating at home. I hate that they cut the wing tip off the whole chickens. You can't use it in IBCA because of that.
