    Yeh I find a good butcher cuts you good deals when they realise you are a good customer. The ends of a cut of steak for instance are not exactly the shape most people want a steak but I'll take a weird shaped fillet or Ribeye for half price.

    The source of the meat probably dictates taste to a greater extent to whether it's organic or not for reasons that you described.

    GMO=genetically modified organism. This has a specific definition, and many people choose to avoid GMOs. Again, this is a philosophical/political choice, as there is no evidence (yet?) of health benefits or harms from eating GMOs. Also, there are no hormones or steroids used in the raising of poultry, at least by US law. The differences you notice are probably due to the feed and lifestyle, or perhaps heritage, of the chickens you eat. The most widespread use of hormones in livestock is rBGH used to increase milk production in dairy cows. This would not be helpful in chickens, as they don't produce milk, given that they don't actually have breasts. They are bred to have those big muscles that are sold as "breasts," but if you attempt to milk a chicken, you will only succeed at annoying the chicken.

    I'm only have experience with chickens. For my taste, it's not a matter of organic vs non-organic, but rather how they were raised. Chickens that lived in grass, even if they're the fast growing hybrids, tastes better and the meat feels firmer. Having said that, beware the heritage birds, some of them can be tough, scrawny and as much bone as meat.

    Never cared for chicken in general. Wild game is better although pricier

    I find this area of the forum really helpful. I saw another thread where you mentioned a book is coming, that is great, I will buy it. I hope you can put in some recipes for wild game too.

    If you're paying more than a tiny little processing fee, you're doing it wrong. That is, you have the wrong friends. Good hunters will hook you up with meat for you and special "toys" for the pup.
