    Holy sh*t!  I missed out on them last year,  and have been waiting for them to resurface. Time to stock up.

    What are racks of pork?  Ribeye roasts?  Bone in pork chop roasts?

    I've actually been seeing them at Tom Thumb lately. Bone in, unsliced and cheap as all get out. Never cooked one before, wish I had room to stuff some in my freezer for later.

    Cooked one tonight with roasted butternut squash, carrots, onions, and red pepper. Good eats. ;;)

    It's a bone in rack of pork enhanced with a salt solution. Cooked raised direct at 350 rubbed with a spicy mustard and McCormick steak seasoning.

    Yes! Just discovered these last year, was pretty bummed when I found out they were seasonal and I missed out putting a few in the freezer.

  • One of the easiest, bestest roasts on the egg.  Pre-brined so pretty hard to screw it up.  Takes smoke nicely.  Rub with what you got in the cupboard and it'll taste good.  We easily do 5 or 6 every year while Costco has them in stock.

    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season. 
  • Big Costco fan.  But Costco would be a lot better if they'd start selling packer briskets in the Northeast.  I'd take that any day over our racks o' pork (although I do like those!).

  • Rack of pork, saw them in the Bellingham Costco - this was a couple of months ago, no finish shot as I was overcome with hunger.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    More rib or butt taste? Yes, I said butt taste.

  • @henapple - More of a loin taste, the meat is quite lean, unlike either ribs or butt, IMO.

    Loved these when I discovered them last year. Didn't realize they were seasonal. Will stock up this year.

    They are simply the pork loin with the bones attached.Our Costco has these every Thanksgiving through Christmas. Very versatile cut. We cook them whole as a bone in pork loin roast, or cut into individual bone in chops. Cut the bones off the loin and you have a rack of babybacks and a boneless pork loin roast. Cook the boneless piece whole as a roast or cut into boneless chops. Another option is to get 2 and tie them together, bones to the inside, stuff the center and you have a crown pork roast.

    We always buy 5 or 6 at a time and prep them into the different cuts and freeze. That way whatever the occasion you have a variety to choose from.

    @ henapple cook them all to 140-145. Pull 10 degrees early if you are going to reverse sear.

    The anticipation is building. I can't wait to go clean them out.

    +1 on the 140s.

  • Our first of the season. Simply rubbed with olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh garlic, rosemary. Indirect at 400 to about 155. Left it a little long, but you really can't overcook these since they're pre-brined.

    Delicious as always. With the Costco rack o' pork and the peppermint jo-jos at Trader Joes, I know holidays are right around the corner.

    +1 on the crown roast too! We did that for a big crowd on Christmas last year. Big success.

    Big let down today when I didn't find any at Costco. Came home with 2#s of gouda and 2# of pepper jack cheese that's smoking now. I WANT MY PORK RACKS!

    I see in both pictures above that the rack has been "frenched" (I think that's the right term). The ones I've seen in the store, the meat was not cut out between the bones. Does Costco sell them that way. If I picked up one that wasn't "frenched", what do you do with that extra meat and fat that your remove? Or should you just leave it on?

    Sorry Fred, but I belong to both and I've never seen that cut at Sam's.  Not to say they won't with the obvious popularity shown here.
