Today I visited the Costco food court with one of my coworkers. Turns out he's one of the unclean and has a membership at Sams Club. He had a chicken bake and was converted! He's signed up for a membership right now.

Praise be!

I haven't tried sous vide-ing a pork butt yet, I just can't imagine making pulled pork without smoking it. I should try one of these days but I love breaking out my smoker.

Sous vide for 24 hours, then finish the pork shoulder in the smoker for one to three hours. It's amazing

and the last 10 seconds

that's all you need to watch

My local butcher is actually cheaper than Costco on most meats. I get delicious ribeye cap for $6.99 a pound while the 'co wants $18.99. I've gotten similar deals on brisket, while pork shoulder is always cheaper at Costco.

I know it's a sin, but don't just take it for granted that every meat is cheaper at Costco. Shop around.

The downside of the local butcher is no dog/drink for $1.50

The Costco brand dogs are actually better boiled, imo. They retain too much salt when you grill them, which is a shame because grilling is fast and fun.

Different in what way?

Iíve only had the frozen ones. Last time I had one was 10+ years ago but I remember it being a delicious bread sack of chicken and cheesy ranchy goodness.

IIRC, the frozen ones are made with big chunks of rotisserie chicken while the ones in the food court are made with shredded chicken. They are also bigger in the food court.

Both are delicious, I just remember being slightly disappointed that it wasn't the same.

How does everyone wash their throws? I washed mine last night but it was still soaking wet after the cycle, and it took three rounds of drying. It wasnt my settings because I'd been doing laundry all day just fine.. I guess they just hold water like sponges or something.

I've never had a problem washing or drying the queen sized ones. The king sized one is a different story. No trouble washing, but I have to pull it out of the dryer every 10 to 15 minutes so it doesn't roll up into a big wet ball.

Still, it's the price of comfort and savings, therefore worth it.

Costco boils the food court hot dogs, and I believe in the infallibility of the church.

Realtalk: As a rule, Iíd never boil a hotdog, but the Costco food court dogs that you buy in the refrigerated section are far too salty when microwaved or grilled. Boiling them for 10 minutes makes them taste better, IMO.
