Online meat suppliers

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever tried any of the online meat suppliers like  https://www.crowdcow.com  or  omaha steaks etc?  Any opinions on whether it's any better value or quality than your local costco or butcher?  The crowdcow wagu sounds interesting but it's shipped frozen which puts me off a little..

Omaha Steaks & meats are also shipped frozen. I think that the Omaha products are a bit over priced

but quality is fine. We have both sent and received steaks as gifts and never had a bad one. I've never

heard of the other one you referenced. A number of K owners here order from Snake River Farms.

If you figure that out, let me know how.

Yeah, the prices are more than what you find at the local chain stores. LOL! I might have to look into

this though as our anniversary is coming up and my wife is a carnivore. A steak and maybe a

lobster tail, some martinis... Hmmm - will have to think about this.

You might be onto something... if you’re doing it for her...

well.....

 

A 20lb Wagyu brisket @$259 works out at $12.95/lb or $6.50 per person whereas a smaller 9-12lb is $7.80-$10.50 per person so it's obviously cheaper to buy the 20 pounder.

 

Mind you...the last 9lb choice brisket I got from my local butcher was only $6.30/lb or $3.20 per person so i'm not sure my "science" based argument is going to work! Basically double the price!
