Default New source for Waygu - Williams Sonoma?

Not sure if anyone saw this, but I have seen some threads about the rising price of Waygu from some farmers.

I got this today - Williams Sonoma now has their own mail order "butcher shop" and they list Waygu Briskets for $85. The farm is Oregon-based Yamaya.

http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/.../?cm_type=lnav (all products)

Waygu link: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produ...try%7Cmeatbeef

I am looking to get into competitions, have not done one yet. But this seemed like a competitive price from what I've seen elsewhere. They also had some other interesting products too but like usual WS stuff, rather expensive.

Interesting, a cross between Wagyu and Black Angus.

It is my understanding that a majority of the Wagyu in the market is crossed in this way. This includes SRF.

You don't need to use Waygu to be competitive. Trust me.

the shipping on the site for a brisket order shipped to alabama was only $14 if that is right that is a whole lot cheaper than SRF or Strube Ranch

you could also sign up for a program pay $30 and have free shipping for a year worth it if you ordered more than 2 during a year

It says it is shipped fresh - I've never ordered meat to be shipped to my house, but I would think that they would want to overnight or 2-day it in a cooler, and that seems like it would cost more than $14.

Sounds like the 30$ free shipping for a year is a good deal. Brisket from srf shipping 61$.

Check it out and let us know what the quality is like. It may offer a good solution for the east coast. I know shipping from SRF or Strube can get out of control shipping to the east.

I can get KBA (Kobe Beef of America) locally for $4 lb and SRF is very cheap to ship to western WA. So it may not work for me....

Pay the $30 for the years worth of shipping and use the hell out of it. At $85 a brisket, you'd be getting a solid deal for good quality wagyu.

Great question - I assumed it was a 16-17lb, but it may be a bad assumption...
