    Lamb : Colorado, NZ, Aussie

    Which do you find to be the best? I am not big on lamb so I do not really know. I just want to hear what peoples opinions are since I know a lot of people are rather fond of it.

    The Costco lamb is the best to me, it come from Australia. The rack of lamb, once properly frenched is amazing!! I have found US lamb to have little flavor.

    Two Run Farms, Jackson, MS. Why? Because it's close. Why ship dead meat across the globe? Worried about oil reserves and pollution, think about how much fuel it takes to fly a lamb from Australia to the US, then to truck it to Costco. Somebody near you raises lamb, give it a try. And if it is more expensive than Cosco think hard about what lamb should cost.

    I don't think I have consciously bought NZ lamb to cook. It may have been on the plate somewhere though.

    I've tried the local stuff, not as good, at least where I live. The cost of moving food is a very small percentage of the cost and carbon footprint can be larger than buying local. The Freakanomic's guys did a very eye opening podcast on this, here is a write up on it:http://freakonomics.com/2011/11/14/t...of-local-food/

    I know it sounds counter intuitive! But when it comes to beer which does not freeze well I buy local!!

    Colorado for plated entrees. Australian for carving stations. NZ for butler passed hors d'oeuvres.
