Cash and Carry meat department

anyone have one of these stores near you. I have been getting my pork ribs and boneless butts there. Dirt cheaper and have been outstanding finished product. I also picked up a whole boneless N.Y. strip for 4.48 a pound and it has been great. But I have no idea what these cuts of meat are. Any idea??

    Store in Bellingham WA is always on our semi monthly cross border shopping trip. I also like the 5# jalapeño bags, ideal for ABT pig outs.
    The butts are great to grind for sausage and there are aisles of sauces, gloves and other “got to have it” BBQ fixings.

  • the clod heart is one of the shoulder muscles (Chuck). The clod is the whole shoulder. I think the knuckle is from the round (sirloin/top round/back leg)

    I actually like it better then Costco and the meat prices are really great. I also buy the 15# box of sugar land bacon for $24 . Good bacon and great price. They also have 10# boxes of thin sirloin for cheesesteaks that are very good.

    Thanks for the info. 
  • The beef knuckle, correct me if I'm wrong, is like a moose knuckle but originates from cattle rich environments, such as Texas and Nebraska. There is, of course, the elusive "Wisconsin moose knuckle" but it is typically only found in July-August due to the colder temperatures. 

    Glad you're back, @Hntnhrd ; Just got a box of bear, caribou, moose, and elk yesterday. Was actually going to shoot you a text and see if you had ever dealt with moose sausage. (it's just a loaf of sausage...labeled summer but I don't think it's been cured or fermented)

    I'm assuming the place is a giant refrigerator?  The pics make it look like the meat is just out in the open.

    @Killit_and_Grillit I got really busy last summer into fall and limited my internet time. Now I have time to goof off on the internet again, so back lurking here. 
    Most places around here that make “ salami” from game meat make it like a summer sausage. I have fried it like bolagna before and it’s not bad. Otherwise it is kind of “ mushy”. Ok with cheese and crackers.

    The Bellingham store has at least four walk in cooler areas, I assume they are all similar. The deli, which is all the meat pictured in this post and cheeses; the veggie room; the dairy room and the frozen food room. Check out their web site for more detail.

    Lazzari mesquite lump is $14 for 40# bag.... way too much stuff i just have to have like 16 qt cambros for sous vide at about 1/2 the Amazon price. Great store.

    Around here, a Cash & Carry meat department looks similar to this.
