    Hey all,

    What is your feeling on the meat at Costco? Anyone use it regularly?

    Everything I have bought at Costco has been top notch Doc. That being said I don't buy briskets or butts there except when I am making Buckboard bacon. The reason being is that Costco, in my area at least, does not carry packer briskets and the butts are all de-boned. Also, their ribs are Armour brand which are enhanced so there a pass for me as well.

    The rib roast, chucks, and ribeyes are topshelf though. You can also get some nice salmon, chicken, shrimp, and scallops. I really like the Costco chain and there are some nice items and good buys in the stores.

    Do about 85% of my meat shopping at Costco. But like ultramag said, no briskets do I obtain at said establishment.

    The meat department at my costco is very well educated on what they do. I have had NO bad experiances with any of the meat I have bought from there...

    You know, I was JUST wondering about this last night. We may have to change the name of the boards to!

    Thanks for posting this!

    Ahh yes Dev, I was sensing that as well...we are all one under the smoke!
  7. Just picked up some salmon from Costco that I am going to marinade in some maple glaze and throw on the smoker later. I have done it a few times and it comes out delicious. I have also used their pork butt a couple times and it is pretty nice too, although they are boneless.

    We don't have Costco around here, but we do have Sams Club. Their meats are fantastic and wife always picks up a fillet of their Salmon also. Never done it on the smoker yet. Always ends up on the grill for a flip or two.
