How to Save a Bunch of Money on Chicken and Turkey

A buddy of mine passed on this link and I found it interesting.

I also thought some of you would get some real value out of it.

Work Safe

Looks like a tempting endeavor for zoners

Re: How to Save a Bunch of Money on Chicken and Turkey

A good amount of people here do this already. Your friend is getting ripped off, I can get whole uncooked chickens/turkeys from Wegman's for $.75 per pound. I don't know how much of a cost difference there is for uncooked vs. cooked, but definitely get uncooked because I find there is alot less sodium in uncooked meats, specifically when it comes to the precooked chickens/turkeys.

Get yourself an air rifle and find some pigeons. It's not chicken, but it's a bird.

I live in the city. I don't even want to think about the composition of the pigeons here.

I'm pretty sure flying rats on a diet of old cigarettes aren't paleo (or zone).
