We were feeding him the Costco Salmon grain free food. That's the best we found for him and he still had regular diarrhea (pumpkin didn't help). We tried so many different foods for him. He then developed a recurrent skin infection and after two rounds of antibiotics we discovered that it was autoimmune. By this time we were pretty fed up with his never ending issues and I expect he was too. So we switched him to raw chicken (pre-made food). From there we went to adding things in to determine what he was allergic to. Turns out he's allergic to alfalfa which almost all of the high quality kibbles contain.
We did the switch for his breakfast on a day that we were home in case it upset his system. The diarrhea stopped immediately and within two days his skin infection was gone. He had no issues whatsoever from going from a fish based kibble to raw chicken the next day.

Don't Ever give cooked chicken bones
Always RAW uncooked.
The RAW bones crunch and break and digest well
Cooked chicken bones can splinter longways
turning into sharp splinters which can then pierce
the gullet or stomach lining.
Causing thousands of Dollars worth of operations to get them out.
So No Sunday lunch Carcass and No KFC bones.

You leave the bones in chicken legs, he will eat them. If you give him a chicken leg or a chicken quarter he will probably crush it up well and swallow it whole.
I don't know about T-bone steak, I don't know what bone that is. He can't have weigh bearing bones from large animals, he can clean them up but not swallow them.

The vet said he will reach around 100, he will start growing his manly structure soon. I plan on giving him raw completely as i know he will never will/does eat his dry food alone
When i give it to him, his dry food alone he wont eat it. But when i cook ground turkey or ground beef and mix it in there he devours it.
how do you guys deal with bones in chicken legs, do u give him organs seperatly?
Besides ground do i just buy a tbone steak and give it to him, let him chew it up? I feel like itll take him awhile to rip it up. So morning he gets a chicken leg and some organs night he can get lets say steak

2 cups is a lot.

If so they need bones and the meat has to be in large chunks, it's better if they get to chew it themselves. You also have to give organs.
You can give ground beef for a few days just make sure you have a game plan with the right %
ETA. As far as how much to give, as far as I know, you give 2-3% of their ADULT weight daily
So if uu think your dog will be 100 lbs then you give 2-3 lbs a day split in 2 meals

So ground beef straight out of package is okay to give as a meal? Say 2 cups?

Please note I was quite specific that it was RAW containing bones
Not plain meat, it's the bones that need the different enzymes to be broken down
Ground beef is no different in digestion to say tinned meat and can be mixed with kibble
