The question is whether Freezer Beef is the right choice for your family. Hopefully, we can provide you with someanswers. Many people are considering purchasing a side of beef, a front quarter, or a hind quarter of beef. We want to provide information to help you decide what is the best choice for you. First of all, we deal with smaller beef, so a side of beef would weigh between 260 and 300 pounds. The Butcher is running a special on Freezer Beef. The cost would be $2.99 per pound. There will be some waste on a side of beef; However, you are going to end up with some great beef at a great price. We will cut the beef exactly the way you specify. In fact, you are right back there as The Butcher works his magic. You will decide how thick to cut your steaks. You will decide if you want the beef shanks for soup or if you would prefer to have the shanks boned and put into the ground beef. At $2.99 per pound the beef is not wrapped; However, with just a little work and some freezer bags, you can package the meat the way you want it and save the cost of having your beef wrapped.
A hind quarter is also on sale for $2.99 per pound. The hind quarter is where the majority of the steaks come from. You will have Porterhouse Steaks, T-Bone Steaks, Sirloin Tip Steaks, Sirloin Steaks, Round Steaks and a Flank Steak. You will also get a Sirloin Tip Roast, a Rump Roast and ground meat in the hind quarter. You will also have beef shanks and bones. An average hind quarter weighs between 130 and 155 pounds. Again, you will specify how you want the hind quarter cut.
A front quarter is where you will find the Round Bone Roasts, English Roasts, rib roasts, rib steaks, short ribs, beef shanks, a Brisket and ground meat. The front quarter will weigh about 140 to 160 pounds. They are also on sale for $2.99 per pound.
