Needed to replenish my meat stash so I took a trip to Costco. Spent a few bucks and got Tri Tip roasts, pork butts, pork loins, St Louis Ribs, Chicken thighs, Shrimp, Brats, Hamburger, and a Corned Beef. This should keep me busy for a few months since there's only the two of us. Time to clean out my MAK 2 Star wood pellet smoker-grill and do some smokin'.
My wife pointed out a killer deal I just couldn't pass up. Cryovac USDA PRIME Beef Loin Tri Tip whole Peeled roasts for $5.19 a pound!! Picked up 2 bags - each one had 6 roasts in them. Choice Tri Tips were around $8/lb. I noted that the Prime roasts were only available for a couple of days cause my local Costco no longer carries cryovac PRIME Tri Tips. Timing is everything! Gonna be smokin me a PRIME Tri Tip every week for the next 12 weeks ... doesn't get any better than that.
Needless to say you really need to invest in a decent food vacuum sealer.
