    WooHoo! I go to Sam's regularly and have looked every single time and every single time nada, but today, after I had forgotten all about it there it was! They have recently renovated our Sam's and it seems to be bigger with lots more stuff! I'm so excited, I'm marinating two flank steaks to make fancy shmancy fajita's with all the works! Yayayayayayay!

    I'm going to do a search and hopefully come up with some ideas, but if anybody has a favorite I'd love to hear about it!

    I've heard Ron is the formal Yoshida's Ambassador of SMF by the way.

    Let me know if you ever can't find it. Our Costco carries it year round for about $5 or $6 bucks on a big bottle.

    I've got a brisket and two big flank steaks marinating. I didn't want to use the whole bottle so I made a marinade and then added some of this to it. I love flank steak for fajitas. I better get busy making some flour tortillas and some corn tortillas for chips and salsa!

    If you are ever in this spot again just post up what you need and one of us will gladly send it to you or do an exchange if that is what you want - I just sent some chipotle to a member who could not get it in his area

    Yay! Mrs. B. I'm marinating the flank steaks over night and I can assure you the drama will continue! It seems Mizz Roma has found her way in to my Mexican dish as well! She's a naughty girl.

  12.  Yes that is the real Junki Yoshida. I have been to his house a few times for parties ect. His sauces are made in Portland Oregon. I have toured the factory to many times to count as we were a sub-contractor of theirs for alot of years. We would make the double packs ect for costco. I have tried all his sauces and havent found one I havent liked. I am new to smoking but I will give a few of his a try.

    So do you have a inside connect? They make about a dozen flavors that I can't get.

    Yea, me too. I only get the original and just picked up a bottle of the Hawaiin. I'm planning on marinating the UPS guy in it. [​IMG]

  15.  I can only get this in large amounts from Costco.   Please share some recipes with Mr. Yoshida's?  I see a lot of people talking about it but no recipes.

    Use the search tool at the top - RonP posted lots of them when he was still around.
