Thanks Hydestik. Used them years ago and was really pleased. Just wanted to make sure that Grannies was still the place of choice.

They do it and they're good...but it's high$. Friend made some last year with them

Had a local that would do it for me. Would do as much as I wanted if I bought the supplies (she'd give me a list) give her some meat from mine and $50 ....would get a bunch of tamales.

She's not in the best health anymore I'm looking for another like her. Old Mexican lady that made them the right waym. Prob ended up costing me about $1-$2 a dozen plus supplies and donating her some meat. I'd bring her some deer sausage as well. Think she just liked making them as they seemed to make them for the family about once a month.
She gave me some of hers one day and that's how we got on the subject and she began making them for me with my meat

Bellville is by far my favorite meat market. They are way too expensive on tamales though.

Why do folks pay more to have tamales made than they cost to just buy at the store? And whats worse is you are providing the expensive part, the meat. Makes no sense to me. From what I've seen some pay I can get them served up with rice and beans cheaper than they pay to have some made.

Granny's prices are not bad and they are 1000x better than store bought.

Last I checked Grannies had a 20# minimum, but they didn't seem to care if the meat was deboned or not when calculating weight. I took a hind quarter the first year and liked it so much I took them a whole deer the next. I didn't think it through very well, because I was somewhat shocked when they called to tell me my 150 dozen tamales were ready for pick up. I fed friends and family for the next year.

When we were on patrol we used to eat at this Jalisco restaurant and my partner became friends with the owner and staff we would shoot a number of hogs and gave them to the cooks and they gave us all the tamales we could have. But we were overrun with hogs and those ladies made a bunch of tamales to sell so all they had to buy was the masa lard and spices and husks

Mmmm tamales. One of my best friends growing up is Hispanic and every year his family gets together and makes a butt load of them. If I'll bring them a hog before Thanksgiving they give me more than I can eat in a year in return!

I've used 'em both, and Pete's ain't even in the same game... If you compare a wrapped up dozen of Pete's with Granny's, just the size difference will show you the difference... Granny's are twice as big, and they're not all masa...
