Raw diet journey

Alright everyone! So first step was doing my research and second was finding a supply chain. Well! Third step was getting a cooler and well! Check! Here it is! Picked it up tonight. Next step is buying the meat this weekend and then cutting it up! Well we also have to buy a scale! So here is the picture, for any of you who like comedy you should know it's on top of my husbands 2 dr accord ? Ha!

nice! Don't forget to let it sit upright for a day before plugging it in when you have it tipped sideways like that

One tip for using a chest freezer--not just for meat, but any chest freezer:

Buy some plastic baskets to organize it before it gets full (milk crates are great to use if it's a big freezer, or find appropriate smaller, stackable baskets for small freezers). Group things by type in the baskets. If you organize this way, when you inevitably want to get to the stuff at the bottom, you just lift out the top basket, and it's easy to get to the stuff below. The milk crates can even be rotated top to bottom from time to time. It also makes it less likely you'll forget ("lose") good stuff at the bottom.

You can find assorted plastic baskets at Walmart in several different departments: sewing notions, bath items, organizing, and laundry -- write down your inside freezer dimensions to take with you to the store, so that you can put some together that exactly fit your freezer.

I also recommend hanging a white board next to the freezer. I have the board divided in quadrants corresponding to my baskets, and I list the contents of each basket (and the date the item went into the freezer). When I want something, I know right where it is going to be found, so there's minimal digging.

Yep. I feed the chits. They count as muscle meat.

Stomach, intestines, gizzards, uterus, lung and heart are the organs you count as muscle.

I like to stuff the chitterlings with ground meat, fruit, veggies, and yogurt/kefir then freeze. I feed them frozen solid. Raw dog food popsicle sausage LOL

Woo Hoo!!!

How are the prices? Having variety is great but if it's pricey it's not necessarily worth it for me with the drive to VA Beach. Central Meats in Chesapeake has exotic meats (kangaroo, alligator etc.) but I can't pay $12 a lb to feed it to my dog.
International markets can be great but I take caution where some things are sourced. Anything out of China would be a no go for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a purest but China has a really crappy reputation for food health and safety.
