Here's something I feel like I have some experience at... food and eating!

In the picture below, I drew a line around the best part of a RibEye steak... the Deckle! If you're in the meat market, THAT'S what you want to look for on your RibEye steak. If it has a small deckle or none at all, I don't buy them. The deckle should be well marbled and BY FAR, the best piece of meat off a cow. (Johndough mentioned a piece of meat on another thread and I'll have to see what he's talking about)

The Filet Mignon is good and tender and leaner, but the taste of a deckle beats it hands down!

Sams here in Hoover... (and I think in Pensacola, too) usually has some really good ribeyes. Kinda thick, but that's not a problem with me. But, they're not bone-in.

I have seen Winn-Dixie put bone-in rib-eyes on sale for around $5/lb. which is very good. Sam's prices are usually around $9/lb.

I see that until tomorrow (the 19th) the Winn-Dixie on Blue Angel (at US-98), has T-Bone steak at $6.99/lb... not bad. You have to have the Winn-Dixie card, though...

Winn Dixie on occasion here will sell the whole loin for 3 bucks a pound and you can have them cut it into whatever size steaks you want, usually about 16 to 20 decent sized uns. I try to wait until they do that to stock back up, then bring them home and package them in my seal a meal which hands down is the best invention for the kitchen ever.
