Zaycon foods review

Zaycon foods link

I recently tried ordering from Zaycon foods.  I'd often seen info about getting chicken there, but as it wasn't any cheaper than what I'd been getting on sale at the grocery store, I'd kind of ignored it.  (Since then I've been told by friends that Zaycon's is way tastier than the grocery store).
But then they had a really great deal on ground beef.  You have to have 90% lean or leaner to can ground beef.  And it's rarely on sale for cheap enough to can a lot of it.  And it's never in 40 lb boxes like chicken.  So when Zaycon had it for $2.89 lb at 90% lean, I ordered a 40 lb box.  The instructions were to pick it up during certain hours at a local bowling alley.  I was picturing mayhem, lots of people, me trying to carry a 40 lb box.  But I was impressed with how quick & easy it was to pick up.  They had a truck full of the beef, & cones to direct your car.  You drive up, the mark your name, put your box in for you, & you're gone!  Super fast!  The beef came in 2 long packages, & it wasn't frozen so I could can it right away.  I got around 1 lb in each pint jar.  The other times I'd done beef, I'd browned it first to get rid of some of the grease.  This time I raw packed it, as browning it all would about triple the time & work.  Everything went great!  The beef is super tasty (we used some fresh for dinner too).  It was a great price & easy to pick up!  I will definitely be ordering from them again!  Might even try the chicken!
Right now they are taking orders for bacon, seafood, chicken & beef (availability depending on where you live).
