Cash and Carry Lazzari Mesquite Lump - Page 2

post #21 of 33

I've had a couple people tell me I need to go to cash and carry. I'm in Puyallup but there is one close in Spanaway. I am going to check it out. I was told their meats are select and not choice but that is fine for making sausages and snack sticks for me. Thanks for the post of the killer price on Lump coal!!!!

post #22 of 33

I went there for only the lump coal but saw a lot of stuff there in bulk, I saw a guy buying what looked like a huge pork , looked like shoulder perhaps, I dont' know my meats well and haven't done a pulled pork yet.  But he seemed happy with the price.  I am going to go back a snoop around, kind of warehousey , which is likeable, and the staff seemed friendly and willing to help out.  The guy at the check out went to the back to get me 2 more bags.

Puyallup, nice area.  Use to live in that area when I was stationed at McChord AFB, back in the 80's.  Great jumping off point for some beautiful backwoods and fishing.  I've used several of the meats and I challenge the statement that they're select.  Most I found were choice and excellent eating.  The prices are very competitive and usually will beat most area supermarkets like Haggens, Top Foods, Safeway and Albertson's - day to day.  Prowl the aisles, you'll be surprised at what all they carry.  Just keep in mind that Cash and Carry was set up to serve the restaurant trade and allow us "civilians" to shop there as well.  I guess I'm in there on the average of twice a week, looking for something or other.

See the remarks above.  The Pork Butt I'm using in my BBB thread came from Cash and Carry.  Their packages average 18-20 lbs.  Great ribs in the St. Louis Cut, Baby Back or Full Spares at unbeatable prices unless one of the grocery stores is running a loss leader.  Definitely go prowl the aisles.  Wear a sweater or coat when you go into the freezer.  There's alot back there you can't see from the aisle side of the freezer.  The staff are always friendly in Bellingham.  Yes, warehousey, but remember they were set up to supply restaurants and let us shop there as well.  As far as warehousey, no worse than Costco.  And no, I don't work for Cash and Carry.

You scored pork shoulders?  I haven't seen any up here.  Maybe I ought to ask and see if they can get some in for me.  I'm still lusting for their ribeye.  I have one of their brisket flats that I'm smoking this Friday.  I'll let you know how it comes out.

The one in clackamas  seems to only carry the boneless shoulders/butts  the one on 7th & stephens in SE Portland has or had the bone-in shoulders

yesterday a whole chicken , today ribs.. I'm gonna get brave and do a shoulder some day soon but, I only cook for myself and my wife and daughter so I'll have a lot left over, will probably last me more than a week.  I could probably be nice and take some to work :)   I'm using a Kamado btw, not an offset smoker.  The Lazzari 40lb bags have huge chunks, so I'm using a mix of the smaller and larger ones, but will have to chop off the branch size ones.  Nice to chat with fellow PNW'ers !

I tend to cook brisket, tri tip or pork butt stuff we can eat off all week the family likes brisket and pulled pork sandwiches 

 

I'm not as upscale as some here I'm using a 40 year old weber today set the coals to one side and toss in a a small chunks of mesquite wood  it works fairly well BUT I think i'm at my limit with what It can do. I also have a gas smoker but i get much better results with weber.   I'm looking at an upgrade to a Yoder  or Horizon  in the near future 

 

I live off clackamas rd on Hartnell ave by the way

P-s-s-s-s-t.  Don't tell anyone because they won't restock after each years initial shipment but....At least in Bellingham, C and C carries the Bear Mountain Brand of smoking pellets.  Many excellent flavors available.  These are hardwood blended with Alder for ease of burning.  20 lbs for 9.98.  If you're using the new version of the AMNPS (Todd Johnson's pellet smoker) these burn just fine in it.  Great for cold smoking and hot smoking.  Keep it in mind.

I've had different variations of grills, but mostly offset type stuff and a Traeger , now a Saffire Kamado .

I'm up sunnyside area

Yep, I used to get Bear Mountain pellets at Cash n' Carry when I had a RecTec.  They use alder as base wood, but are high quality and inexpensive. I'd use them alone for ribs. For brisket and pork butts I'd use either use a pure hickory pellet, or hickory/oak blend, then switch to cheaper Bear Mountain later in the cook after the bark was set.

 

As far as meats, Cash 'n Carry has great prices.  At the Bellingham store, Dave will order in CAB briskets on a couple of days notice, and they are not too much more in price than the select grades they carry. St. Louis ribs are a good deal and good quality.  They only carry boneless pork butts, though next time I do a butt cook, I'll ask Dave if he can order bone-ins.

Correction on my last post: Dan is the meat guy at the Bellingham Cash 'n Carry, not Dave.  He ordered me some CAB briskets which I went to pick up today.  Bad news: they hadn't come in. Good news (actually great news): while I was searching their pile of select briskets to see if I could find a couple of limber ones, I came across two 15lb. prime briskets. None of the employees recalled ever seeing Prime in that store.  $2.52/lb.  I feel like I won the lottery.  Trimmed, rubbed, and currently on the Battle Box for an overnight low 'n slow.

 

Dan also said he was happy to order bone-in pork butts.

Old thread but what the heck!

My C&C stocks bone in butts all the time. I rarely buy brisket because we prefer Tri tip. I have on occasion seen a prime brisket or two mixed in with the rest.

They are remodeling our C&C so it's a bit of a zoo there right now as they are resetting the store. The stock is down a bit and it's not organized yet.
