Can I get a trip report on the hot turkey and provolone sandwich? Much like the above poster with the brisket, its hard to take the plunge when theres a fresh hot chicken bake RIGHT THERE

Had the hot turkey and provolone for the first time last night and I thought it was quite tasty. I'd already eaten a dog for lunch, so I heated up the turkey sandwich in the microwave later. It probably would have been even better had I eaten it right away, when the bread was the crispiest.

Haven't had the chicken bake yet though, so no way for me to compare.

I was going to ask the same thing but hey man, can't Costco shame.

Also since the question was asked, I am not 300lbs. Thanks to the weightloss forum in YLLS (everyone go there if you are interested), I'm down over 20lbs since January. 5' 11" 187lbs. :boom: Although I have to attribute a lot of that to the past few weeks since I stopped drinking, and eating for that matter. I'm getting my appetite back now though so I can fit more dogs in my gut.

Those veggie bowls were really good. Also Costco is the perfect place for getting bulk chicken breast and fish and lots of frozen veggies.

Costco wants us to be happy and healthy!

Brothers and Sisters,

It has been seven years since I was a member of Costco, and reading this thread continuously has reawakened the spirit of Costco in my heart. Today, I took part in the sacraments, and renewed my membership (they still had me on file, so it wasn't a new membership). I went up and down all of the aisles, reminded of those items I had seen so many times over the years, yet had not seen in person in so many years. I shopped and stockpiled on a few supplies, including the frozen Jamaican Beef Patties I had for a late lunch. It's been so long, yet it was like coming back home.

I finished my shopping trip as one should when in the Holy Land:

I agree. That's quite the hot dog condiment skill.

Also, welcome back to the Costco. Did they baptize you right there or since you were a previous member did they let you just jump ahead to the hot dog communion?

I prefer to add my mustard lines on either side of the dog.

God drat, I want one now.

I read recently that you'd have to spend $2,750 per year to break even with an Executive membership (I upgraded a few months ago). That translates into roughly 1,833 dog n' drink combos.

The lady at customer service still had me on record. I had to give her all of my updated info; address, phone, etc., and she asked me if I wanted to renew the Executive Membership I had before. She reinstated it, I got my picture taken, grabbed a cart and then got my stroll on.

Seriously, I haven't been a member for years, but it seemed like I was just shopping there only yesterday. The uniformity and consistency (even the Costco smell) are pretty amazing between both locations and the difference in time.

Just sliced up my brisket from Costco and put it in the marinade for a lovely overnight bath.

I just started throwing poo poo in there. It was a fine cut of meat and the perfect size for jerky. Of course it is, it's from Costco. I just cut the fat cap off and got as much as I could out of there. Then I took a ziploc bag and dumped in soy sauce, teriyaki, worcestershire, liquid smoke. apple cider vinegar, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne powder, ground black pepper, red pepper, and brown sugar to hopefully cut the immense amount of salt.

Tomorrow I'm going to throw those bitches on a dehydrator that I just found in my basement that is 10+ years old and let it work it's magic.

This was all on a whim too. I was at Costco, saw some good meat, quickly googled a good type of meat for jerky and bam. I bought it. 2.55lbs for $17. I hope this works out.

I'd never thought about making my own jerky from the brisket.

Maybe I need a dehydrator.

Anyone compare these to the already frozen ones? I just freeze these anyway.

My local Costco was robbed at closing time just the other day. Three suspects came in with ski masks to do a smash and grab on the glass jewelry display. The noble Costco employees responded by tackling one of the suspects and detaining him until police came. Would a Sam's Club employee do the same?

I've probably made jerky once before on my own and I don't remember what kind of meat I used. Probably a bad cut. I chose the brisket just because I saw it and it looked perfect for jerky slices. That's when I googled it and it said it was one of the best for jerky along side flank steak and top round. As soon as I build up the motivation I'm going to get off of my couch and wash the dehydrator and throw those babies on.

If Sam's Club's policies are like Wal-mart's, they would probably get fired immediately. I've seen a number of articles of people getting fired from Wal-mart for physically intervening with a shoplifter.

Sorry, but the Costco employee should not have done this. He or she is part of the Costco family and put themselves at great risk to tackle a guy, they could have been killed. The merchandise is insured and even if it wasn't, the amazing financial acumen of Costco would allow them to easily absorb the loss. But the Costco employee? Irreplaceable. If they had been killed, no amount of 1.50 hot dogs or tub-sized Queso containers could fill that void. Costco values its employees, it pays them well and treats them nice. This employee should treat themselves better too.

Maybe. I guess none of us ever know how we'd react when put into a situation with great danger and a need to protect something valuable. Like if beloved Costco CEO W. Craig Jelinek told me I had to kill a man for him or the hot dog/fountain drink combo would increase to 1.75....it's hard to know what I'd do in the heat of the moment.

Just coming in to say I took a stroll down to the Costco by my work on my lunch break, only a short 4 block walk. Picked up a 1.5lb bag of organic baby kale, chard and spinach for $2.50. It boggles my mind that it's that cheap

So close to Costco every day, truly blessed
