If you plan to cook that day or the following day it's no big deal but I dont want to freeze something for 1 or 2 days just to turn around and thaw it out. And I've bought bad meat on a couple of occasions. I got a full refund but didn't like the hassle.


Expiration dates are overrated...seriously.

Costco 100%. I shopped at Sam's for years...until I found Costco. In my area, the Costco and Sam's were very close, but the meats at Costco were far superior in both quality and price. Now that I've moved, there is a Sam's about 15 minutes away and I still drive an hour to go to Costco.

Superior. That's all I cook now. I do 50-100/year. Case price is awesome.

Costco for prime packers, whole boneless ribeye and boneless pork butts. Costco has more organic items. Sam's for full spares and bone-in pork butts. I'll get whole chickens from whichever one has the best deal. Usually RD for beef rib plates when the price is right. I've been checking out GFS too, but I haven't bought anything yet.

I have memberships to Costco, Sam’s and BJ’s and Costco offers the best selection of meats.

Most people probably don’t know that depending on the size of the Costco will determine what meats they stock. For example I have four Costco’s within a decent vicinity of me and the only one that carries full prime packers is the Columbia. Maryland location since I was told it’s a “large” Costco and they move meat faster than the the other locations do.

I can't speak to Sam's. I am in the restaurant industry and the co for which I work has the best food scientists/quality assurance folks in the business. They all tout very highly CostCo's Kirkland QA team and food quality standards, and they all shop there, particularly for meat. That was endorsement enough for me, so I'm a regular.

Costco>Sam’s. Although I have been getting angus tri tips from Sam’s in Pork Char-o-lot that Costco never carries. We also really love Kirkland ham, both spiral and the applewood carvers. The real meat hoards, the ones that make Bunny flip out on me because of lack of freezer space, come from GFS.
