Alright you Meatetarians,

What are you guys doing with your custom chunks of meat (107/109 and primal) from BD? I got a 109 and am on the fence, probably 30-35 days as I'm not a huge fan of extended aging. No idea on my cuts yet. What are you guys doing?

I've only ever seen one or two wineries that let you choose fedex or ups when you order, any idea why more don't do this? I have to imagine the volume discounts would apply to both, and would allow you to choose who does better locally.
