    Found an "End of the Rainbow" Deal

    I ran along this not so little hunk of meat at Coscto a few days ago and could not resist the chance to make use of the new vac sealer. Flash masked it but the weight was 11 lbs.

      Nice... Costco I find to be THE BEST meat source available. They don't have specialty beef like wagyu but the Prime is fine with me. I like their 2 packs of butts/shoulders. Their 3 packs of ribs are excellent too. I buy chuck roast there the use to make Meatheads Steakhouse Burgers.

        The chuck roast in the PBC chuckie thread I started a few days ago was from Costco. Love Costco.

        Here is a shot of the interior. The marbling isn't bad at all.

        I got 9 steaks out of it. Each was about 1 3/4" thick and weighed between 16 and 18 ounces.

        Last year I stayed at a hotel with a fancy restaurant on site. They served prime steak hand carved on premises. The hotel also had a pub just outside the steakhouse. The pub had one of my favorite road meals ever they called "Pub steak and duck fat fries". The steak was basically the irregular end pieces of of a KC strip or ribeye loin and the duck fat fries were fried fingerling potatoes served with a duck fat dip on the side. Anyway, from that inspiration I decided to make pub steaks out of the end pieces and cook them hot and fast on the 13 yr old Weber Gasser.

        Here are the end pieces coated with McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning.

              Nice... Well done. The marbling is great. 9 steaks at $11 per serving. I was in Las Vegas about a month ago. I went to a steak house there called STK. I had a 1 1/2" Ribeye with fettuccine Alfredo and asparagus. I asked the guy is a prime grade steak? He said it was a farm to table grade that was the equivalent to prime... Which means it was Choice. I paid $95 for the food then $60 for a bottle of Merlot. I thought... What Rip off! I knew I could prepare a real Prime ribeye, the fettuccine and the asparagus at home for NO more than $20. That $60 bottle of wine I can buy at at Costco for $20. After that meal I decided I WILL NOT order steaks in a restaurant anymore.

                That's one of the down sides of this website. It's ruined me and the Mrs. for ordering when we eat out. Soooooo, much better at home

              I've come to that conclusion a few years ago myself. Wine is often $8-13/glass for the same wine that costs $13 a bottle at the grocery store. The thing about those fancy steakhouses is if you're a wealthy person or businessman with the company card, then you don't care. But for the average working man without excess disposable income, who can cook steak at home with good information like AmazingRibs, nope!

                  Lol, not intentionally. At least Pit Boss knows how to cook BETTER than the steakhouses.

                    Y'all are funny.

                    On travel days that I eat at a steakhouse I always go over my per diem. I don't mind spending $20 or $30 to test out all the techniques out there. Maybe one day I'll find a steakhouse that teaches me something (so far notsomuch tho). The missus and I very rarely go out nowadays, and when we do we ask ourselves why we did.

                      Ours is use it or lose it... so I guess it's not really per diem. It's expenses covered but capped.

                      "Gift Card" per diem. Capping is not good. Tis never good to manipulate a free market system.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
