Clearly you're not having any luck with this, so lets try something new. Baby backs or loin backs are rarely "straight and flat." The hog just isn't built that way. If you must have baby backs, go anywhere you buy them and pick through every rack until you find the straightest, flattest racks. Or just cook St. Louis cut spares. Many, many awards are won with St. Louis cut.
You might also consider the old way of buying meat; the way we were taught back in the good old days of the KCBS: get to know your butcher. Skip Sam's, Costco and all the cheapo junk and go to a meat market or even a super market and talk to the meat boss. Explain what you're doing and what you need. Usually - not always, but usually they're happy to help.
