went down to the butchers for the first time ealier to have a look on what sort of deals they could do me with chicken. all of it is free range normal £7.50/kg or if i buy bulk ~£50 worth i would be given a price of £6.18/kg. what do you think of this price, fairly average/good?

what sort of price do you pay per kg usually?

hmm looks like i need a bit more looking around then as £6.18/kg was given as the price they supply to pubs and restaurants at. still works out cheaper than supermarkets and better stuff but if people are getting £4/kg damn that would be much better.

where would i find a wholesale butcher?? guess you arent talking about buying bulk from the normal local butcher.

One butcher charges £25 for a 5kg catering pack, another charges me £6.50/ kg and from their own farm. The water that coems out of the ctering pack chicken when defrosted is ridiculous, so you get what you pay for.

may just be my personal experience but even tesco's fairly expensive chicken has really poor quality quite tough lots of gristle all the way through it

Try n find one thats located in an industrial unit etc

Most high street bucthers will get thier meat delivered to them in useable cuts. Ive seen me walking into my butchers and one of the guys will be hacksawing a pigs head off:lol:

I just started a similar thread about this earlier, do you mind if i ask the name a location of your wholesaler mate? Im in lanarkshire daily for work, could stop by if its near.
Its in Blochairn Market mate, C&C meats.

I've been going a while and get a fair but of stuff of off him for various people so get some excellent deals but as long as your willing to take a 10kg box of chicken then it should be around £4.50 and kilo.

His fillet steak is something else... Duno if you read RS007's journal but he eat nothing but this and eggs the day before a show as it's so damn good:thumb:

if you're not opposed to buying from an online butchers, and willing to buy in bulk, then i can recommend you have a look at westingourmet.com which is where i get my chicken from, I buy 20kg at a time, for £99, which comes in 5kg packs, very well packaged with icepacks and insulation in the boxes to keep the meat fresh. At just under a fiver a kilo when bought in such bulk, the pricing isn't bad, and their quality is excellent, the fillets average around 220g fresh, and shrink by only a tiny amount when cooked, which shows they're not pumped full of water like you'd get from the cheap supermarket chicken.

They sell cuts of steak and other meat to, but i havn't tried anything other than chicken from there currently.
