    Anyone shopped at Cash & Carry before? I had never heard of it until this morning when another member posted about them. I see there is a few here in Western WA and was just curious if you had been in there before?
     
  2. I been to cash and carry. Just bought pork butts for 1.35 a pound. They have lots of stuff, bbq pellets, cheese, meats and other things. There is one close to me, Im always checking out things there. But then Im in Vancouver,Wa[​IMG]

    Do you need a membership or anything, or just walk in off the street and buy?

    When I lived in B'ham, it was my "go to store" for professional cooking utensils, bulk items and odd items retail stores don't carry.....  they carry a good inventory and anyone can walk in....   check out the meat dep't... primal cuts are cheap...   
     
  5. anyone can buy there. You can buy anything you want...which is alot

    They cater mostly to small stores and restaurants, but anyone can buy there, provided you want large quantities of most items.  Packer cuts of meats, frozen items in big boxes, etc. I've found it's a good place to source frozen pork bellies.

    But there are some smaller, individual items, too, like sauces, and cooking utensils, as Dave mentioned.

    Price-wise, they are pretty close  (+/-) to the Business Costco in Lynnwood.

    That's true, and the price is pretty good on them. However, Bear Mountain pellets are alder based, with different flavor woods added. So if you want pure flavorwood, you might want to shop around. I do buy my alder pellets there, of course.
     
  10. I agree, they are Alder based. But unless you know of a vendor closer than Black Doiamond

    Cash and carry saves me a 2 hour round trip.

    I buy all my pellets (save for alder) from Todd at A-MAZE-N Products. Look around the edges of the page here to find his link & check out his prices.

    Cabela's in Tulalip has a few different brands. Rich's and Aqua Quip in Lynnwood both carry Traegers, so they probably have pellets, too.

  12. I have looked at his prices, which are good. 

    However I am retired on a fixed income.

    I can not afford to make such a large purchase.

    Also no not have the space to store that many bags of pellets.

    To me  6 or 8 bags at $100.00 is a large purchase.

    Bit dusty in here....I live on the east side of the state...do all of our shopping in Spokane. Was in the Cash & Carry on Division the other day...the 40 pound bags of Mesquite chunk charcoal was under $15.00. 20 pound bags of pellets were $9.90 if I remember correctly. Just wondering how there meat is? When we get a vac. sealer we want to try a few different cuts of meat from them. Not many butchers out this way....

    ink, morning.... When I lived in Bellingham, I bought meat from their store there.... Their primal cuts were a good deal.... I liked the "clod" "chuck"... front shoulder cut.... there are some "premium" cuts on the front shoulder and some very tasty meat.... a lot of it is a little on the tough side but..... that plays right in to the low and slow smoking methods....

  15. inkjunkie,

    Yes, Cash and Carry, No membership fee.

    If You are in the market for a vacuum sealer. Take a look at the Vac Master Pro 350, 

    At Vacuum sealers unlimited. com . They are on sale at a good price plus free shipping. 

    Get your self a Christmas present.

    I was looking at the one below (?) it, the Pro 260. Is it a fairly decent unit? We bought a elcheapo one vac. sealer a while back...and suck it did...but not in a good kind of way...

    Morning Sir...when I was in the Cash & Carry the other day, taking pictures of the meat bins...my memory is just about shot....one of there employees started talking to me. His father in law is a smoker, said we might want to try out there tri tip roast...said every time his father in law smokes one it is delicious...

    Love Cash & Carry!  My go to place for pork ribs (whole spares or St Louis cut), butts, loins and briskets.  Also get bulk spices for rubs (although I got some commercial rubs for Hanukkah/Christmas and that I am excited to try) and charcoal at reasonable prices, but on charcoal usually Home Depot or WalMart has better specials, so keep an eye out for them.  We have Several Cash & Carry's within Vancouver or striking distance in North Portland, if you're a convert for So Cal it was called Smart & Final down there.

    We need to pick up some spices for the Boss to make a rub and a few other things, will be going there for sure. Only chunk I have ever seen at the local Wally World/HD is Royal Oak at right around $.75 a pound. Just picked up a 40 pound bag of Mesquite from Cash & Carry for under $15.00...
