    I know I sound like an old maid here [and a cheap one to boot] but
    Harris Teeter has got leg quarters on sale until the 18th for 37 cents
    per lb. I buy three hundred pounds at a time when I find it on sale.
    I got three Rottweilers and I got them on a raw diet. I buy theirs outta the same case that I buy ours out of. they have a limit of 4 packs per
    trip which is about 22-24 pounds.[I know Doug the meat man] about
    7-9 bucks.

    The dogs get most of them because it is 37 cents a pound. Good
    dog food runs 50 cents alla way to 2.00 per lb. so it is actually
    cheaper than dog food.. and better for them. simple economics
    really. Just think about when your daddy or grandaddy shot a fox
    or wolf or dog for that matter around the farm. It was for killing
    calfs or chickens or something along those lines. Not for raiding
    a corncrib or molesting a wheat field.[​IMG] I started smoking leg
    quarters instead of other methods of cooking and it opened a whole
    new can of worms.. GOOD !!. I just MAY sprout feathers before long..[​IMG]

    I like leg quarters, in my opinion they are the cheapest and easiest thing to smoke... Just never bought in that large qty...

    That is a real good deal on the price! I guess if you're raising dogs, then buyin 300 lbs is the way to go. You got a dedicated dawg-deepfreezer I guess!

    I got an old round top chest type freezer that is pert near old as I am.
    I use it for my furkids. I don't have any combination of dogs that will
    produce a puppy. I am a member of a Rottweiler Rescue Group.
    I started out just fostering them but I failed in foster 101. LOL.
    The come but they never leave. now they are family. all medical
    misfits of some sort. Like me.
    They have less medical problems now that they are on a mainly raw diet.
    I know the highway patrol dispatchers here and when someone hits a
    deer at nite they call me.If I can get to it within the first hour or so and If it ain't tore up I field dress it and put the meat in their freezer. Happens
    maybe 5-6 times a year in cold weather. Helps out on the dog food
    meat department considerably. Below is a picture of Chopper doin'
    a ''Roadkill'' for my wife Dwarf..[4'8''of mean] he is an honest 155 lbs
    and those are 12'' tiles he is laying on so as U can tell, I need alla
    help I can get.. LOL.. Hemi. He also helps out with my smoking oops..

    Love Rotties. Miss the two my Dad had when I was younger, they were like big loveable bears.
    Pops even built them a good sized house and put in a light and a tv for them. He is a bit crazy but loved those dogs.
  8. I know what you mean about failing fostering 101. I fostered for Brittany Rescue and the rest as they say is history and the history still lives here.
