W/M beef doesn't come from inside a store--it comes from a ranch usually and eventually winds up in a store. W/M is one carrier of it. Prices going out of sight on beef this week I hear. Better attack the chickens and save the beef prices for your gas tanks.

Aging Beef - The nearly lost art of the great steak
That's because you'd have to warehouse a two weeks' supply of meat in warehouses around the country.

Remember: To those with a sensitive nose, "aged" is another word for "spoiled."

That was a joke Wayne, a joke. Same with pope secola. Don't take life so serious Wayne, you're not getting out of it alive anyway.

Only bought steak once at wallyworld.It was so enhance{injected with salt broth}that I returned it. Tasted more like salt pork than steak.All their chicken is also enhanced.I don't like paying for up to 15% flavored water.

Took the motorhome out for its monthly drive yesterday and stopped at a local campground for a propane fill. Was on line behind another motorhome and talked with the gentleman driving. He said his wife and he had been in Florida for 2-1/2 months staying at different Wal-Marts, truck stops, Cracker Barrels, and stealth camping in neighborhoods and orange groves. Didn't say if by choice or necessity and I did not ask. I guess he must really like Wal-Mart chicken.

He sounds like my kind of guy! Overnight where you can, not where you're expected to...

It always amazes me. We tried to stay at one Walmart and got run off. We did manage a couple rest areas on our way to somewhere. I have seen some heifers and porkers on the hoof at Walmart and the packaging was terrible. Gotta love Wally World, one of these days I will overnight at one.

We should make up Wally docker stickers for our rigs and advertise for our gracious hosts. Wally Docker Chicken lovers!

Shot up with water by the same process...

Meat from Walmart, especially beef, tastes/cooks different because almost without exception its weight is made up of from 10 to 20% water, which alters the texture.

That's also why it's "cheaper", if one thinks paying $5.99 per pound for water is cheap.
Apparently lots of folks do, since in spite of the fact that Walmart's labels clearly state that they've added the water, folks keep buying it!

For WALMART PARKING lot barbecues, no doubt.

Is that the best you could come up with?

I'm thinking, I'm thinking....
