I've been told that SAM's is going to start carrying Smithfield "Competition Packs" of ribs and butts. Supposedly 2 packs of spares and 2 packs of butts in special packaging. Anyone else heard this and if so when it will happen?

Interesting if true. I wonder if the grade of meat will any better? Nice straight bones would be sweet.

I just attended the NBBQA conference this past weekend. A hog from Smithfield was one of the 3 hogs cooked for a class and SAMS, being a huge supporter of the NBBQA this would not surprise me.

Smithfield showed them off at the KCBS meeting. The ribs are packed back to back so you can see the tops of both racks. The butts are supposedly hand selected.

Did they give any indications when they would be available?

In my local Sam's I've had some SF butts & ribs & have had good success with them taste wise but as far as appearance that's run the full range of wouldn't give it to a starving dog I hated to give it to the judges. Only thing I can hope for is like what someone posted above, it that the ribs are evenly cut across & no knife knicks. I would assume the price would be a premium if they go about hand selecting & that's the key question in all of this. Are they going to be hand selected for criteria or are they just going to be the regular stuff packaged in a special way?

I'm anxious to see what they have, when they come in.. Now, to find out the delivery dates of my local Sam's to make sure I have a good pick from them, before the dads who boil them show up and buy all the good ones.

I spoke with a competition who bought one of these packs last weekend...he said the meat was good quality, but the rib bones weren't straight. Not sure if they are hand selecting the meat for these packs.

It would be great if you could see both money muscle on the 2 packs of butts.

How do they come where you get them? Do they pack them with the MM facing each other? I've only ever seen them with the money muscle showing.

Same here, one MM on one side, and one MM on the other side.
