So are you actually reading this? Gotcha! Just playing around a bit with negative suggestion.....
Actually, this post is made up some odd and ends with regards to sandwiches, and you should probably come back tomorrow for something a bit better.....really!
Since you decided to stick around....here goes......
I was doing my usual toilet paper/paper towel/laundry detergent/ etc, etc, run at Costco on Morena. I passed the "home of the $1.50 hot dog combo" aka the food windows and saw something new on the menu. Something I couldn't help but try.
They often test market items at this location, perhaps because Costco's Regional Headquarters are located here. So this time it was......
My curiosity got the better of me and I ordered one....purely for research purposes of course.....
Damn, this thing was huge....with a good amount of oily barbecue sauce oozing down one side. The beef was shredded like a tough machaca, the sauce was fairly bland with just a mild spicy finish, the roll was hard and cold.....colder than the tasteless coleslaw.
In short, if you're after quantity over quality, this fits the bill.
I had two people email me about the Arby's Smokehouse Brisket.......so I decided to give it a shot. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, try this on for size.
One can take into consideration the comparison of the Ice Breakers container to understand the size of the sandwich.
Now let's take a look inside.
I won't go into the too sweet BBQ Sauce, the tough and fatty meat, the cold and greasy onion strings.......all for $5.69? This makes what I recently got from Bristol Farm look like I went to the French Laundry.
And yet, sometimes impulse buys work out well. During my visit to Costco, I decided to pick up one of the prime tri-tips. Seasoning with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and some Mexican oregano, I kept my expectations low.
My goodness....this was so good.
It was basically a "hot smoke" over oak for about 1 1/2 hours and it came out juicy, tender, with a nice smoke flavor.
I also smoked some garlic which I mixed with horseradish, making a sauce for my sandwich.
If you decided to stick around and read the post; I thank you for being a really dedicated FOY (friend of yoso)! I hope you had a great weekend!
