Excellent work on that steak.

I also own that same grill and chimney starter. You have inspired me with your chimney technique.

I love the Kettle. My Bullet, Masterbuilt, and Brinkman (and propane Genesis) don't even get used anymore. I just did a brisket last weekend and it came out fantastic. I've also become hooked on lump charcoal. Way better flavor.

And better food court items. Also some nice seafood options in the deli case.

We do have the bulgogi bake but our hot dog is made of pork instead of beef so I think overall you guys got it better. The pork dogs are ok but kind of mediocre in comparison to any proper beef dog.

Note - searing on the chimney is extremely metal forging hot. You have to keep active, 10-15 seconds at most before turning. You can return if you need more sear. I wouldn't use this heat level to cook from raw unless you like that black and blue style.

Edit - I mostly use the Kettle for good steaks or for smoking ribs and stuff. For general grilling, I just can't wait for the coals to heat up, and my propane grill is used most of the time.

Yeah I kinda figured that was a reverse-sear only technique. The flames out of that starter are probably pushing like 1500* lol.

Boy, I think it's about time I tell you the difference between a man and a woman. A woman isn't a woman unless she's pretty. And a man isn't a man unless he's ugly.


What's with the bumps at the entrance of every Costco? Rolling a cart over them is annoying.

It took a little over an hour to get up to temperature. I let it rest while I got my chimney starter going, and placed the grill grate directly on top. I quickly seared the steak over volcano level heat.

I'd be careful with Costco beef. A lot more of it is mechanically tenderized, which basically pushes surface bacteria deep into the meat.

Costco will tell you if the meat you're buying has been blade tenderized on the price label, with a recommended cooking temp of 160.

My fiancee asked once and was told it was so that carts that begin rolling unattended don't peace out to the parking lot and hit cars/people/etc. That doesn't mean the dude knew what he was talkin' about necessarily.

e: the Mercury news has a short bit that mentions the Costco bumps specifically so I guess it is primarily to adhere to the ADA:

quote:

Q A friend fell on the yellow bumps on the sidewalk at Safeway in Soquel and broke her leg in four places. She had no insurance and was in the hospital for three days.

A These truncated domes at curb cuts are designed to meet requirements by the Americans With Disabilities Act and are meant to inform blind pedestrians that they are stepping into traffic. But lawyers have had a field day with these. They’ve filed so many lawsuits that cities and corporations are going way overboard to insulate themselves from lawsuits. How so? Some make it difficult for people using walkers, canes and crutches to easily cross these dotted surfaces. Places like Costco and Target often run them the entire length of an entrance. Critics say they are also a huge headache for nondisabled folks.

Oh, Dee, you card. :-*

This is from 2013, so not the most recent documentation, but it states cooking temp of 145. A whopping six people from 2009 to 2013 had issues requiring hospitalization so it doesn't really seem to be worth worrying about, especially if you're not into store marinades or flavor injection. Eat your tasty-looking hunk of meat.

What are y'all buying with this label?

Skirt steak? NY Strip? Ribeye? Brisket? Ribeye Cap? Ribs? Short Ribs?

I've bought all the above and more in the last 12 months and nothing has had that label or the texture of mechanically tenderized meat.

My real beef is with my Costco parking lot which seems to have 6 inch tall speed bumps that are a total bitch to roll a cart over. I am precariously towing 5 cases of monsters, this is not the time or place for rough terrain.

theres "whack it w/ hammer" mechanical tenderization and "whack it w/ jaccard" which is what costco does w/o exception. jaccard imo is much more similar to normal rear end meat

To be honest, I didn't look for that on the beef tenderloin I got for Christmas. I cooked it to 135 F and we're all ok, though.

I didn't take picture of this year's because I was too rushed, but I can post pictures of last year's later. I rub it with fresh cracked peppercorn and kosher salt, and do a reverse sear. It comes out amazing each time. I'm vegetarian 99.9% of the time but break it for this.

We need more pictures of the penis fork, it's just too hard to understand what's going on there without more info.

To me it looks more like a charred penis covered in fur or perhaps even finely matted feathers.

It also looks hollow? I would err towards it being some specialty fork but the construction quality looks low. The handle might even be plastic. Dollar store penis fork?

So many questions.

NY Costcos have the same thing. Honestly, I find it's not really worth it for the prices but the convenience is nice at least.
