    In the good old days Grandpa's wisdom was spun between friends and family. Many useful tips were passed down between generations of fathers, sons, and grandpas.

    During my early years they taught me quite a lot. I hope to share some of that knowledge with all who come my way.

    With food prices going through the roof, anything that will help your food budget is worthwhile. In this video, I show you step-by-step how to save up to 65% on chicken parts by disjointing the chicken yourself. :D

    already know how, but with whole fryers going for less per pound than leg quarters anybody that doesn't know how to do this should definitely learn! IMHO chicken is the easiest animal to learn on as well based on size & commonality

    :lolsmash: @ "the I can't afford to eat that diet" :cry:

    It already rings for me about hamburger. HAMBURGER for goodness sake! That is apparently where I draw the line. Can't find it where I am right now for less than $2.99 a pound. Last summer I could get it a little store in NM for 99 cents a pound and canned plenty! That is what we have used all winter and are still using. I do have hope to find it at a halfway decent price when we head out for the summer.

    Sorry--did not mean to head this in another direction!

    Growing up, Ma only bought whole chickens. We have now returned to buying whole chickens and cutting them up ourselves. It is the only way to go.

    Whole chix on sale

    The local food emporium flyer came this afternoon. Whole chickens, (with full giblets) $.79lb NO LIMIT!:D

    I think I have freezer space for around 30 birds so I don't have to can them all at once!

    Gonna do my "Happy Dance":congrat::congrat::congrat:
