Kernel logs?

Somebody who has been using linux as long as me should not be asking this, but if I wanted a log of what was printed to screen during boot, before the userspace portion of the boot, where could I see this? It's not in dmesg or kernel.0.log

Last time I had to do this I used a serial console line to another Linux box running minicom at 115K, turned on capture and saved it that way. If there's a way to end up with a file after boot, I don't know it.
