    Default Do you buy you meat/poultry from the Butchers..?

    I hosted dinner and made chicken curry last night. It tasted amazing. You could taste that the chicken had a happy life. I bought the chicken from a East Indian butchers in the NE.

    My question is, do you buy from a butchers? Or do you buy from Walmart, Safeway, Superstore..?

    No option for never?

    I buy almost all my meat from Costco, will occasionally pick up from Safeway or coop if I don’t have time.

    Otherwise mainly Costco because price.

    Going in with a buddy on half a cow later this year, interested to see the difference in quality, Angus beef from his sister & bro in laws farm in sask.

    I buy all my meat from a butcher. They even sell vacuum packed individual free range chicken breasts which is amazing for a bachelor.

    The chicken is phenomenal, changes the way a stir fry tastes and the texture. No weird rubbery Prime chicken from the store.

    I'll never go back. Their steaks are also just amazing every time. Not to mention they have smoked sliced bbq brisket for lunch meat, fresh farm eggs, bacon, etc.

    I've done the "Pepsi Taste Challenge" direct comparisons more than once with butchers v grocery stores on steaks and we more than once found the grocery stores to be superior. So fully half the price and better? No brainer.

    The best turkey I've ever had came from Hirsche Fraser Meats Butcher, though...

    Both.

    Usually order a bunch of beef once a year from the butcher in my parents town. A tad more expensive but enjoy the quality of the beef a lot more and can get specific cuts for steaks that are much better. But chicken and fish I just get at costco

    Everything else, costco most of the time.

    I'd say jump in on getting your pal and your hunters Ed. From there try and get someone you know to take you out to see what you think about being out there.

    I used friends guns early on before diving deep into hunting. It doesn't have to cost a lot early on until you know if you'll hunt more often.

    Deal with the butcher for buying a quarter or half a cow. We do that because it's a local farm and they break it down how we like it. It's also reasonable at around $4/lb hanging weight. Quarter lasts us probably 8 months.

    Does Garcha Bros count? Any time I forget to defrost something for dinner I go there to pick up something to throw on the BBQ/smoker.

    We do the same. The rest from Costco.

    I think we paid about $1100 for a 1/4

    If you are going to buy any fraction of a cow you need ensure you eat a ton of ground beef.

    Because that’s mostly what you get.

    I would argue most people would be happier buying whole Primals.
