    Seriously, is there any meat in that A5 fat?
    Beef Suet is a lot cheaper, and it has to taste very good. The birds and squirrels consume it quickly when I put it out in our feeder.
    Happy Grilling to you

    Here's the ones I bought back on 9/20/20. Fast cook and very rich. They were good, but I doubt that I'll be buying them again.

    A5 Wagyu Oh My!!!

    Last week we were at our Costco and they had some A5 Wagyu Ribeyes out @ $99.99/LB. I asked my wife, who would be crazy enough to buy those? Well today is our 51st Anniversary and we were there again. She said, "why don't you get a package as my present to you", she knew they are on my bucket list. I looked at and touched all 22 packages they had and grabbed this one. Although the marbling was similar on most of them, check the spinalis out on these babies. My wife's a keeper for sure.

    Tax return? What is that? Getting back what was stolen from you?

    Anyhow Costco sure does have some gems as far as seafood and meats no doubt.

    Make sure to report back on the results, I found that these tend to cook quicker than "normal" steaks and melt in the mouth but are very rich obviously

    A5 Wagyu from Costco

    I had seen other post on different corners of the internet that their Costco had real Japanese A5 Wagyu steaks. For the last few months I have been looking every time I am in Costco (at least once a week) and finally, today I found these:

    $99.99 per pound. Guess I needed something frivolous to spend the tax return on.

    I have had A5 Wagyu before so I am interested to try these and see how they stack up. From what I could tell they are from Kagoshima which is the type of beef that won the 2017 Wagyu Olympics. Similar steaks from Crowd Cow from Kagoshima go for $170 a pound so $99.99 is practically a steal!

    A couple months back I was talking to a friend who sells very high end Wagyu and he said Kagoshima (and Miyazaki) are kind of on the low end of the Wagyu spectrum. Still delicious and still a great experience but there is better to be had. I am very interested to cook these up and see how they compare to some of the higher end steaks.

    If you are in Costco take a trip to the freezer case by where the pre-formed burger patties are sold and you just might stumble upon some of these.
