Performed some minimal processing myself today....Boston Butt, Pork Loin and a Beef Tenderloin.
Here's the butt processed into future Buckboard Bacon (bottom left), meat for sausage (top) and a Blade Bone for the next low & slow cook.
Next up is the Pork Loin. Bottom left is some fake Boneless Country Style Ribs
, chops to the right of that, double thick chops at the upper left and then the Sirloin will be turned into Canadian Bacon
Bought a 7 lb (7.02 actually) whole Beef Tenderloin at Costco the other day for $6.49 lb. Some nice steaks and the chain/pismo w/trimmings at the bottom left. I normally leave the chain on and then just trim between it, but it does make a prettier steak if it's removed.
Out of that 7 lbs I got almost 5 lbs 14 oz of usable meat. I did trim it up pretty close and it still figured out to $7.82 a pound. Not a bad deal at all. They had the 'peeled' version on display for $9.99 lb, so I saved $2.17 lb today. At regular prices the savings would have been about $45 ;D
And tonight's dinner........bacon wrapped and coated with Rodak's 'new' Cherry Smoked Coffee Rub.
