They must have been feeding the cow that came from pure gold for it to be worth that much

That is incredibly expensive, but I can somewhat see where the price comes from. Think about it, they are essentially ruining an entire ribeye section to get this cap. So, they take a 15 lb. section of the best cut on the cow, cut off 2 lbs for the cap, and maybe another 3-5 lbs to sell as the ribeye "filet". The rest, 9 or so lbs (just guestimating), is either ground or scrapped, unless they sell it as beef back ribs. While it certainly is one of the best parts of the cow, it just seems like a very wasteful cut.

Well if I had enough money and tried just about everything there is on the planet I may just try it for the sake of trying it.

Some people got more money than brains I guess

Tough crowd!!!!

For those of you that don't know me, I'm Shane with Snake River Farms. Naturally, I have a few points to make in this conversation

First - I know some of you think that you would have to be CRAZY to spend this much money on a piece of meat. However...I have to remind you that the same people buying this likely think YOU'RE crazy for having 3 BGE's, 4 UDS's, 2 Weber OTG's, 2 Thermapens (because of the speed differences in red and green) and a cupboard full of 83 different rubs. My point is...to each his own!

Secondly - honestly, I'm in this business, and this is the best piece of meat I've ever eaten, hands-down. Crazy good. And, as it's been mentioned, it's really expensive for us to produce, hence the price.

Finally - remember that this isn't a standard "steak". You wouldn't sit down and eat this whole (frankly that would be way too rich). Thomas Keller serves this at The French Laundry and the portion size is around 2-4 oz.

Ultimately - everyone has certain things that they're willing to pay for to get "the best". I have friends with home audio equipment that costs more than my car, but I can't hear the difference. I have other friends that buy bottles of wine or bourbon that cost more than I spend to take my whole family out to a nice dinner. And I have friends with more money in BBQ equipment than I have in my kids' college savings. But that's OK - it's their choice, and they wanted the best.
