    glad the pup is feeling better.

    I’m with you on top sirloin. I’ve never found it all that enjoyable. I actually had my first top sirloin in decades recently (I wanted the Oscar style at the restaurant and it was the only steak they do that with..their ribeyes had been good on prior visits so I trusted them). Meh, too lean and not easy to cut nor tender.

    So I’m off top sirloin for the next few decades again...

    I made a Costco run (200 miles round trip) to load up for guys week this coming week. Planning prime grade rib caps, a repeat of the smoked giant ribeyes and a side-by-side of some local raised filets vs Costco prime filets. Oh and my first beer butt chickens with some local sourced chickens.

    (look how cheap the Costco prime beef is at the idaho falls store - although they did raise it $2 per pound from the week before. I still can’t believe they strip off the rib cap and then sell the “eye” only labeled as “ribeye”. Some sucker’s gonna buy that and wonder where the rest of their ribeye is! I say that fully acknowledging that I was that sucker once or twice!)

    We've had both the Costco prime tomahawk and cap steaks. Great meat. And, we've even fell for the ribeye "eye" switcheroo!

    I've concluded that you're better off with a choice grade better cut of beef than a prime grade lesser cut.

    agreed. The Costco choice ribeyes (with the cap still attached) looked fantastic on both of my recent trips. Very high grade choice. And their choice whole tenderloins are unbeatable. That’s our family go to for Christmas nowadays rather than prime rib.

    Costco sold a box of filet mignons wrapped in bacon. Pretty tasty on the grill. I have a craving for them. Checking to see if Costco still sells them. If not there is a meat market chain here that sells them too. That will be dinner.

    Sounds about right... baked / grilled chicken! I get the grill hot, add chicken, lots of bbq sauce and cook till done. It’s indirect heat with a BGE insert thing.

    I've seen those. But, the wife will only eat super crisp bacon, and so the filet would be charred by that time.

    More details on the Meyer lemon tree? Did you grow from seed? Seedling? How long before it produced fruit?

    It’s the same one I’ve posted here before and it’s ready thriving right now. Just picked two, few more ready soon. Must be 15 more about plum size. And another round of blooms with 30-40 tiny ones - most won’t make it. We’ve had it 7-8 years. Bought it online as a small plant. First fruit I think was year two.

    We got it here. I still had the receipt - bought it June 2014. Three years old when I got it.

    They are good......... I like rare bacon. Costco didn't have them and the meat market I know has them was closed on Sunday.

    Today, I'm getting take out, just not sure what yet.

    Rare/flabby bacon will get me a dirty look and a chin wag from the missus! :)
    Is today a holiday in Canada, Max? It's Labor Day here.

    Yes, its a holiday here.

    I feel like Italian, but the only decent restaurant in town for it. Well its a long drive. Second choice is Chinese. I'm having sashimi and rolls for lunch. Had pizza the other day. Maybe fish N chips. Been awhile since I've had that. A steakhouse steak would also be good. But don't feel like driving into town for my favorite steakhouse.

    The only way to do Top Sirloin is O.G. Santa Maria style:

    Salt, Pepper, Garlic & Oak.
