Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

like a scavenger hunt

On the way home from work tonight I stopped by two super markets - one a large Kroger supuerstore to buy unsalted sweet butter to make RhumAndJerk's ghee. I might as well been on a scavenger hunt like when I was a kid. Besides not being able to find it when I asked knowledgeable-appearing clerks in the diary sections they looked like I was asking for genuine cheese from the moon. Is unsalted a health store item or what? If nothing else I've got a mission for Saturday morning!

    RRP,
    This should be an easy item to find. Unsalted butter is also known as sweet butter. There may also be a local name for it that I am not aware of. I generally purchase Land ‘O Lakes brand, it comes in a blue box. The normal salted butter will come in yellow box. I am pretty sure that Land O’ Lakes is a national brand and not limited to the North, maybe someone in the South could help with brand names.[p]Hope this helps,

    RRP,
    Sorry, I just looked and it appears that you are more in the Chicagoland area. You should have no problem finding Land O’ Lakes Unsalted butter in a blue box.

    RRP,
    Just put some pepper in. That'll balance it out![p]Sorry, feeling a bit goofy today. Like R&J says, this is a pretty standard item. Ask someone at the store who looks like they DON'T know what they are talking about! They are usually the most intelligent![p]Man, I need some food.

    RhumAndJerk, it was actually Land of Lakes brand that I was looking for specifically. I found plently of theirs and other brands of "sweet" butter but they also were clearly marked as salted also. Our little burg here has about 110k population so hopefully I'll find it tomorrow, besides I love the challenge...which will probably mean I'll stop at the "-4" and find it in 10# pails!

    Nature Boy, Sniffin' rancid ribs makes you a little goofy, does it? Did they offer you any apologies or discounts for your time and gas money to return their rotten ribs? I find a lot of places won't/don't even take customer inconvience into consideration when rectifying their own errors/poor products. How was the chicken? :)

    BBQfan1,
    Costco is not known for personal customer service! No apologies. They have a guy at the door who puts an orange sticker on stuff you are returning. He asked me to open the tied up trash bag that I put them in. When I told him they were stinky rotten ribs, he let me go in.[p]Chicken was awesome. And the wife definitely prefers that over ribs!![p]Enjoy your week off.
