Default meat at costco

on dh's most recent trip to costco he got ribeye or t bone, and lamb chops
for our dinners in the next few days, all of it looked great to him and the
lamb had gone from 10.99 lb to 6.99 for the lamb chops, so if you like lamb
it might be worth checkng out. Lee

Costco's lamb is from Australia and New Zealand and is different than
American lamb, lacking its subtle taste. It's not bad, just different. This
is particularly true of their boneless leg of lamb. This is just a "so you
know". We're great fans of all Costco meat. $6.99/lb for lamb chops is a
great price. We just had the same lamb chops at $10.99 and they were
excellent. I'm not aware that Costco does markdowns.

when dh was looking at it there was a sign, so he asked if it was a used by
sale, worker said no its the new price, the way he got it, these are
adjusted weekly if need be. Lamb indeed does taste different from place to
place, but if treated well all have their own good qualities. Lee

$10.99 is their rack of lamb, $6.99 is their lamb chops, and $4.99 is
their boneless leg of lamb.

New Zealand lamb kicks American lamb's butt. NZ lamb is much tastier.
American lamb isn't even worth buying, IMO - Not enough taste.

You've obviously never had bone in Iowa leg of lamb slowly nursed up to 120F
on the grill with garlic and rosemary.

In general New Zealand and Australian lamb is older and stronger
flavoured than lamb from USA or Canada. The reason is that they can
graze on grass from birth until going to market. Grass is free, so it
usually costs less. The grass leads to the stronger taste.

Lamb from the lower two thirds of USA is also grass fed, for the most
part, but they tend to go to market a bit sooner, so it has a less
pronounced taste.

Lamb from Alberta, Canada is entirley grain fed, since there is snow
on the ground from the time they are born until processed for market.
This means Alberta lamb is (A) younger and more tender (B) milder
tasting -- a benefit for some people who don't like strong tasting
lamb, and (C) it's more expensive due to the cost of the grain.

Jun bought a rack of lamb for me. Either Kiwi or Aussie. $15.99/lb! 9 ribs,
maybe 1-1/2 lb. She smoked 'em rare with a localized hood on her Lodge
grill. Pricey, but man were they ever good!

Gone for 6 months. I sure have a lot of catchin' up to do! Gotta learn how
ta use this laptop, too. Only took a week and the help of a half-dozen
techs from India to get online. Yippeeee!!!

I suggest you get yourself a real keyboard and mouse if you didn't
already. Those are two reasons why I hate those damn things.

Thanks, man. Yep. I've gotta save up some $$$ and get a desktop.

Almost five years since I've been in Thailand. Maybe next spring?

Can't say I know you since I have only been with the group for a few
months, but someone who does BBQ, and a fellow ham, can't be a bad
guy! Welcome back
