    Finally!!

    I have heard of the "guys selling meat from a freezer in the back of their pickup" and last night they showed up at my house! I had to disappoint them as I don't eat a lot of meat. Not sure I would buy it from a stranger in any case.

    I know some people DO buy from them - how about you? any experiences, good or bad? I wonder where they get it, and if it is stolen or out of date.

    I would never buy anything under those circumstances.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    No way. Sorry ... but I don't know where it came from, I don't know where it's been, and I don't know how long it's been there. I'll stick with my butcher shop - and I know even that is not 100% guaranteed but I like the odds better.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Years ago we did buy a box of steaks from one of them. They were the best steaks we ever had. Not sure I would do it anymore with all the crooks out there.

    I just could not trust meat like that. Sometimes we go to ranchers and buy and have it cut up for our freezer.
