I feel like I'm being gaslit, but I checked my google photos. Their search function is superb. They have always had seeds, but the seeds were few.

This one I had yesterday was exceptionally seeded.



Iím getting some Mandela Effect off this because Iíve never gotten a seeded hotdog bun... I think

It's gotta be regional because I've never had seeds on the hot dog buns from Costco, or anywhere else ever in my life.

that's a hamburger bun only thing around these parts

Wow that's trippy. I've never had a bun from Costco without seeds.

Picked up a couple of frozen ducks at the Lynnwood Business Center for one third the price they are at the local butcher, when he even has them. They also had half a goat hanging up in the freezer, but I'd probably die from trying to eat that much goat curry.

Tempting though.

:yeshaha: This is extremely relevant to my interests. Did they also have whole pigs?

Yup, at least at mine they do. Almost always seem to have whole pigs and whole lamb.

Why can't my local here on kauai ever get whole pigs and goats, people go nuts for those locally and the only way to actually get them is to go shoot one yourself, and if you are a transplant like myself it's nearly impossible to get someone to show you the good hunting spots.

Lol I've been using my Costco Visa at the pumps for years but never realized it also replaced the membership inside the store as well...been giving the cashiers my membership card when I could just be carrying my Visa!! dammit :v:

drat, you'd figure whole pigs would be a slam dunk there. That's like the first place I think of when I think of a roasted whole pig.

Great point. Do Costcos in BBQ hot spots sell whole hogs or maybe beef primals? If there's a market for whole or mostly-whole animals, it's gotta be Hawaii or BBQ country.

When I got the Costco Visa it had a new membership number, so the original membership card was more than useless at that point.

I didn't look for the pigs, but probably. They had a half lamb too, but I just got a shoulder. Probably will do a couple of mini shepherds pie out of what we don't eat from the roast.

Took a late afternoon trip like a fool, but thankfully it was quick to get in/get out as long as you weren't trying to eat. There was a line stretching all the way into the seating area. I know the food will soon be members only but I didn't see a sign anywhere so its possible that specific Costco will still cater to the plebs (is it though? A lot of contradictory information and reddit locked the thread as Fake News).

Bought more of those 6 pack dumplings and decided to try the frozen Korean beef style pan fried dumplings. Once pan fried in oil (I used bacon grease) they are crunchy, delicious and honestly better then most chain/quick serve places. The bibigo brand of foods are all so far just incredible for the price, quality, and convenience.

Bitchin' sauce is gone, from walls of plenty last week to not a single one today and was replaced with the Kirkland DOP Basil Pesto. I've seen that mentioned before here so I grabbed that and some of the chicken/mozz raviolis to try it with.

The three piece Kirkland golf balls are fantastic. Iím mediocre at golf on a good day, but played an entire round without losing one yesterday. First time Iíve ever done that. I credit the ball, not my poo poo-tier golf ďskills.Ē

Also, at a buck a ball, I donít give a gently caress if I shank half a box into the woods on any given day. I can lose five for the price of a single Pro V1, and I canít tell the difference in performance. Solid buy recommend from me.

I bought three more boxes today. And, of course, a hot dog.

Break them in pieces and put them in an air fryer. Dip in mustard.

They suck if you just eat them cold, but they're loving bomb as hell when heated.

It's a great snack. I tried them cold and was pissed my wife bought them, until she did that.

Also, the bagged crepes filled with totally not nutella in the bakery area are loving dangerous.

My church has a line 1/3 to the back of the store. My faith is weak because I hosed up and went at 1130 on Saturday.

I'm heading up to the church for some communion, street tacos, and a few staples to load up on just in case the supply chain around here seizes you due to the virus concerns. Any pro tips on things to pick up that don't cross into prepper territory but also smart? Thinking a bunch of oatmeal, dry beans, water, and bitchin sauce.

The junior model apparently is known for having problems with temperature swings, it wanders up and down about 30 degrees. Which makes low-temp stuff a pain, if youíre trying to run 200 degrees then 30 degrees is a big chunk of that.

Some people manage to get it to behave by tweaking the p-factor on the controller, others still have problems. It kinda sounds like itís just endemic to the way they do their controller, the bigger models have enough thermal mass to hold temp while the pellet feed ďpausesĒ, the junior doesnít.

I got one, read about it online, and changed my mind and took it back. There are bigger smokers available for $350, sure you may have to fiddle with them but the Traeger apparently isnít plug and play either.

I saw they now have Louisiana Smoker vertical smokers available for I think $400 ish? I havenít seen reviews but itís a much bigger one for a similar price to the junior/much cheaper than the equivalent Traegers.

Rice and beans is your simplest/cheapest way to get reasonably complete nutrition that keeps for a long time. And as long as you have a nice assortment of spices and some sides to mix it up it's no hardship.

Don't feel like you're a prepper idiot for picking up supplies. Even though the danger from the virus itself is minimal in the general goon age group, the danger of societal and supply disruption due to panic is very real and being ready for it isn't stupid.

I went with the Silverton 620 which seems to be a new Costco only model. It has the D2 drive that is supposed to work better at holding temps, but we'll see. It took a bit of fiddling to get going, but the wifi control is pretty nice to have too.

Surprised my co doesn't have a big bag of dry beans, settled on the canned black beans I always eat but won't help for prepping too much. The 25lb bag of white rice for $9 will help though.

This place is a zoo. Looking forward to my iced coffee with no syrup.

Friend: It was a great cut of meat.

Me: Oh cool where'd you get them?

Friend: Costco.

Me: Costco has top tier meat!

Friend: I would expect nothing less from Costco.
