I buy lots of meat from a local Butcher Shop. It helps if they know you...
I take time to talk about Smoking, grilling, ect...
They gave me a piece of a roll.
(Never hurts to ask)
I know another Butcher Shop/Deer Processor about 20 miles away who is pretty generous, as long as I bring him several Deer a year.
(I also took him to our lease too) Do it right and make a friend.
It also really helps if you live in small town America...
These guys depend on locals for most of their business.
I think of the investment in time as one of the joys of retirement.
