Almost 20 years of marriage, and I have had opportunity to use that line, like twice :lol: :lol: :lol: ! But tonight, at Costco, the Prime Grade roasts (trimmed)were $13 per pound, and this beautiful subprimal was less than $9 a pound!!! Who could pass a deal up like that :whistle: :ermm: :whistle: !!! Besides, marbling in Costco Choice was poorest that I have seen in a while :pinch: :S so had to go Prime!

Small half on Christmas, big half to the garage for a little quite time dry aging in the fridge.



Slow roast, indirect at 250, and finish hot for crust as described by Stike in earlier post.

    Dave I must use your line as I ordered a Handler and the new 4 inch nest for my large today.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Use it at will!!! I didn't create the wife and daughter did...or at least I think they did :S :huh: :whistle: !!! If they didn't, they are still pretty good at using it :laugh: !

    That still blows my mind how they can get that much for it even at that when I sell a whole 350 lb calf for about 2x as much as that one chunk of meat! :pinch: Still bet it will be very tasty! :whistle:
  • It is!!! Unwrapped and put whole sub in the meat drying/beer cooling garage fridge last night. A week may not be long, but I would expect some moisture loss which is a good thing. Kicking self for not doing this about 2 weeks ago (at least).
  • It may be after Christmas before I post a few pics. When I cooked one at Thanksgiving, between the beers and the meat, I put myself into a meat coma that lasted 2 days :laugh: :whistle: !
  • Costco has been pretty good in the prime beef catagory! It is hard to believe the markup though.

    i have not tried this, but if you want to minimize water loss (read 'beef jerky") from the cut end, i think you could rub it with cooking oil, and slap a piece of wax paper on the end to effectively form a barrier against water loss from the flesh end

    just a thought.

    i'll be trying that today after hacking into my roast and chunking off a few steaks (leaving a five bone roast for christmas from the original 7 bone)
