Do you get a front or rear quarter or a combo.

I will be getting a combo. The CNA who cat sits for me gets the other quarter and another one of my CNA's is getting the half.

Sounds like a good price. Does it require a lot of work after you get it?

No, all I have to do is put it in the freezer. It will be packaged. Steaks will be cut 3/4 inch thick.

Rib eye, filet and t-bone...unless we trade around for different cuts. I'm leaning more towards braising meats and letting the guys have the grilling meats. Shrek and I both have dental issues. Besides we eat at their houses frequently, it's not like I won't be getting more than my share

I'd like to try a whole fresh fish from one of our local on-the-water seafood shops. I looked at some red snapper on the hoof the other day; they weren't priced, and the "tripletail" (whatever that is) fillets beside them were $18.95/lb. and scared me off.
