Default DFW area meat processing recommendations

It looks like I'm going to have to start using a different processor to take my deer from now on. I've been using cinnamon creek (used to be Syracuse custom meats). I typically get 2 deer done a year and process the rest myself. I just put a call into them today asking if my meat was ready. This is a deer I killed during the extended season and dropped off the second week of January

The lady told me on the phone that they were running a little behind and it would be another 3-4 weeks. That is absolutely ridiculous! I started going to them about 7 years ago when they were recommended as being the BEST in the area. I think they are good but not that good to wait 3 months to get meat back. I've had taxidermy work done faster than that.

What other places do y'all reccomend in the Dallas/Ft Worth area?

Kuby's

Best bar none

And CCR is good. Not ragging on them at all as I've used them as well.

I've been using Plantation Meats between Springtown and Azle on 199. Fast, good products and you get your deer. Even on the products. Good folk.

Was a huge Kuby's fan until last year when I saw them mixing everyone's meat up in a general batch. No thanks. Don't want someone's half gutted, back of the truck for 5 hours deer mixed with my quartered deer on ice immediately prepared. Never again.

All the rest of our deer went to Rockwall Deer Processing and couldn't have been happier. I think the quality was better than Kubys and they do your deer, one at a time.

Ye olde butcher really dropped the ball this summer with me.
Mislabeled sausage, freezer burnt looking meat in the ground and took two months in June to process 1 axis doe minus tenders and backstraps and grind two pigs into breakfast sausage.
It's unfortunate too as I was their biggest fan after 4yrs of great track record.
Unfortunately this season I opted to give Ricks outpost a shot, while decent and turn around was ok in the dead middle of season, not a fan of their summer or link sausage.

I use Old Town meat market in Lewisville. They limit you to two different grinds, but that's because one guy does it and it's your deer. The sausage is awesome! I usually have them season and bacon wrap filets with the backstraps.

Fischer's in Muenster is good too, but would be quite a drive.

Bummer

I will probably be back to using CCR or Kubys again since my new lease is along the way.

most of the time I process my own animals anyways. I drop one maybe 2 a year just to get pan sausage, hunter sticks and jap/cheese sausage made.

Maybe I need to start learning to make my own after hearing all these stories. I have all the necessary machinery already.

I've often wondered about Old Town. But I ain't giving my backstraps to anyone.

Kuby's is good, but high. Great sausages for sure. Another choice with a huge selection of sausages is Hirsch's Meats in Plano. Good ole butchering is Ye Ole Butcher Shop close to down town Plano. They processed my sons elk this year and did a great job, the hot links are to kill over!!

i had a mulie buck processed at Joshua meat processing and it was well worth the money. That was a few years ago but if you're wanting to try something else? I had 2 WT processed at CCR this season and they were really behind with mine too but it's worth the wait IMO.

Here's a list of one's I've used over the years and what I think.......

Kuby's.........expensive, good, but not expensive good.
Ye Old Butcher Shoppe...........OK, decent prices. Average.
Gorman's..........won't ever process another animal of mine, nothing else needs to be said.
Po Boy's (Merritt)........very good, quick, average price. Definitely would use them again.
Rockwall..........haven't used them, but heard good things. Close to home (2 miles away).

Who has the best sausages is subjective. Just like who has the best chili/beans/hamburger/bow/truck. What I like may not be your cup of tea and vise versa.

Some of you like me, some of you don't.

I have always done it myself but I have a few questions.

How in the heck does it take weeks or months to get your deer back? Do they freeze the meat and then make the jerky, sausage ect ect later? If they dont then why cant you get it back sooner?

And are their really community batches where peoples meat go into one batch to be grounded?
