Thread: Buying Meat off a Truck

    I've seen several of them around. My cousin bought a bunch of "porterhouse" and "rib eye" steaks from a guy once. They were all vacuum packed and when he opened the package these "fine steaks" turned out to be nothing but stew meat and scraps packaged to look like steaks.

    Well I thought everyone had at least heard of it. What it is in my area is a guy driving a pick-up with a freezer chest in the back with a bunch of meat, red meat, chicken or sea food. I just can not bring myself to purchase food from a guy going door to door offering me the best steak I have ever had at a bargain price.

    In my mind, if I wanted the best steak ever I would go to a butcher and buy it. If not I buy meat at the super market where they have to meet health standards.

    The only meat I ever bough off a truck was some salmon and steelhead from the native Americans that are allowed to gill net them off the Columbia river.

    Apparently I don't. Though most of my time was/is spent on campus. OSU probably insists that their meat truck transactions take place out of the area so as to maintain the illusion that they don't serve trash for food.

    Sounds incredibly sketchy to me, although I love the motto of "brown it and down it"
    Same here, I've never seen a meat truck in my neighborhood, but have seen vehicles along the road that sell shrimp & fish same as the trucks that sell vegtables and fruit.

    My Uncle is a Cattle Farmer in the area and if you want to buy bulk meat I think that's the best way to do it. He gets it butchered and prepared and my parents now have beef for a year.

    Knowing where the meat came from is a big part of it. So go meet a farmer or ask around and you can get some great deals on beef. We got steaks, ground beef, etc for around 98 cents a pound.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    We always buy a half a beef from local farmers and have it butchered to our own specs. If you talk to the farmer often times they'll even let you decide how it is finished (grass, grain, corn).

    I agree. I usually split a cow with three other families. Since there is only two of us at home now, that is plenty. I also get half a pig. We put them in our freezer and last us for most of the year. We know farmers, too and it is usually a better price than you could get from a butcher. But, butchers are usually better than supermarkets as far as price goes.
