Costco sells spare ribs for $2.19/lb. The "butcher" says they are from Indiana.
A restaurant supply I can access sells spare ribs for $1.69/lb (IIRC). These are from Iowa.
I have purchased spareribs from Henry's (same as Wild Oats, I think) before, and they were quite tasty. These were from Iowa.
Is there a marked difference in the quality of spare ribs in your experience? (I will be purchasing over 20 pounds worth this time for my BBQ.)
