MEAT CUT CHARTS

I ran into these 'meat maps' this morning and thought some of you might find them useful. :shrug:

You can click on each one, copy & save them individually, too. :thumbsup:

Reminds me of the meat lab posters when I was at NMSU. Even if someone doesn't cut meat it is still great info.
Nice matters

My brother went to meat cutting school at Western Iowa Tech to learn how to break down cattle and hog carcasses into all the different cuts you see in a grocery store meat case.  He worked for various grocery stores in the area before we took over the farming operation for Dad, but he always enjoyed the work.  He always cut up my deer for me, so I really never did it by myself.  I remember telling him that he would have made a great surgeon, but he said they only taught him how to take them apart..........not how to put them back together again. :lol:

Thanks Wolfy, I look at these once in awhile and now I got it bookmarked.

These could be very useful. My best friend was trained as a meat cutter and he was my go to guy for anything meat but he moved out West awhile ago.

To tell the truth, those charts are kind of wasted on me, too, since we just bone our deer out. :-\   Since we don't particularly care for roasts or any of the larger cuts, we haven't cut any for decades.  We REALLY like the tenderloins and loin roasts & steaks, so those are the only larger cuts we package in portions suitable for 2 or 4 person servings.  The rest of the meat we clean meticulously and cut into pieces that will fit into the throat of the grinder......like you did in that photo of the new Crashblade that you were using to chunk-up your trim meat. :thumbsup:
