I would recommend buying 1 bag and trying it before stocking up. Winco had a deal on frozen wings a while back so I bought 2 bags, and when I tried using them recently I discovered they were very bloody and hairy and just smelled terrible. Then I noticed on the bag it said they were a product of Chile or something down in SA.

I was raised on leg quarters. Cheapest meat we could afford at the time. Dad always cooked them on a 55 gallon drum he had made into a charcoal grill. Love them to this day, finding them on sale occasionally for .49 a pound. When I do, it's time to buy and vacuum seal two quarters per bag. That's enough for two of us.

Commercially raised chicken is so cheap it almost scares me! We raise some Cornish X meatbirds every year (this is breed you’re getting from a grocery store 99% of the time). They eat a ton of feed and take about 8 weeks get big.

I have no clue how chicken can be sold that cheap and the producers actually make a living

I like to grill some yard bird quarters over hot coals and brush on a little bbq sauce. Mmm

3'x6' pit. Get some mesquite burning and then spread out the coals. Throw on the rack. Let the rack heat up and toss the meat on. Mmm mmm good

It's too hot to cook right now. Get back with me at the end of September ... Lol

I've raised Cornish as well, yea understand economy of scale, but chicks cost about $1.50 and you are looking at at least 10lbs of feed per bird to raise to 5 pounds. Granted I feed organic, but they end up being around $20 A piece when you factor electricity. One year I lucked out as I was given a few hundred pounds of wheat from someone's Y2K supplies.
