Great Deals at T&T

In the vein of the Costco thread, thought I'd try this. Downtown has stewing chickens for $4 a pop. They are bagged and whole, heads and feet still attached. No idea if they contain liver, giblets, etc. Would make a great soup, Coq au Vin, etc.

    Great idea!

    I'm a big fan of Huang Fei Hong Sichuan (ma la) peanuts. Beer Nuts of the Gods. I think it was $1.29(?) a bag last time I went.

      That must have been Zhu Rong's (祝融, Chinese god of fire) favorite beer nuts, then ;-)

        X2 on the Szechuan chilli-pepper peanuts! They come in larger bags as well.The peanuts with little dried fishes are great too. The other thing I usually stock up on at T&T is their sashimi-grade whole frozen squid. These are IQF in sleeves then vacuum-packed and when on sale @$4.99 lb they are a great deal. Sashimid, grilled with olive oil or whatever they are the best squid I've found.

        I believe Brisket is $3.99 a pound. Anyone have a smoker?
