Best bones to get sizeable amounts of marrow
« on: September 28, 2010, 10:25:38 pm »
Hey guys,

Just done my fortnightly visit to my butcher. I was really pleased because it looked like I was walking away with lots of bone marrow, because I had acquired numerous pieces of bone marrow bones.

However, having got home it appears that there is pitiful amounts of bone marrow in these bones. I have just gone through four chunks of bone and have got minimal marrow.

Are there specific bones to ask for in order to get maximum marrow?

Cheers

Just make it clear that you want only those bones rich in marrow. Otherwise they assume you want the marrow for dogs so they purposely give those bones with the least marrow in them as dogs can;t complain as such.

I order femar bones cut into 3 inch chunks. 3 pieces from a cow give a lot of marrow. Enough for a meal. I like it warmed to body temp which makes it easy to scoop out and eat. My butcher is happy to sell for $1.00 per pound, it is normally scrap.

Yes, grass fed, I found a small town butcher close to me in Kansas. They also slaughter. Marrow bones, neck bones, heart, kidney, suet, etc are all $1. I can go there on Sat. morning and buy a live goat or sheep and have it butchered & take it home. Sweet. I can get the brains, glands, and everything. A lot of religeous folks from Kansas City go there.
