Default Spares at Costco?

We've been cooking back ribs from Costco for years - they come in the 3-rack cryo-pack.

Does Costco also sell spares that way? My wife is usually the meat buyer so she gets the backs, and I can't remember whether Costco even sells spares (but I can't imagine they don't).

That's how they sell them at Sam club so I would imagine they would sell the same at Costco.

Absolutely agreed. Trimmed St. Louis style which is what I used to do anyway so makes it easier for me and the price is right.

They definitely do. They come exactly the same way, in packs of 3, juts a bit cheaper. They are awesome if you can find them.

They come in 3 packs at both Sam's and Costco. I've had much better results with the Sam's ribs, both at competitions and at home. I have no idea what the difference is. Has anyone else had that experience or is it just me?

Costco has St Louis spares in Richmond, VA. I do not think they are Swifts. They ARE over trimmed
