Morrison’s

Recommended Posts

Was in Morrison’s today . And have to say they have an impressive range of pork shoulder, babyback ribs  and other pork products . For low prices and looked good quality . They even had 650 g rump steak for £4.60 

Will be returning next week to get some meat

I get most of my meat from my local Morrisons, usually really good. They tended to only have rolled briskets but they now do a pastrami style brisket, it's great because it's flat so you get a really good idea of the size of the joint, and it's got a great marinade with it. I've smoked a couple now and have to say I was impressed, lovely and simple if you want a very quick to prepare piece of meat to stick in the smoker. Ok they're not massive but they're a decent price so I have purchased 2 or 3 each time I've done them.

Picked up a pork shoulder from the butcher's counter last night, only £3 per kilo. A bargain

Got some baby backs in my pit barrel at moment 

That's what we're supposed to be doing today, but had a last minute change of plan. 

Been craving baby backs for weeks now. 

How are you getting on with the pit barrel?

It’s running hot so need to get some different coals for slower stuff 

but chicken has turned out good and the ribs look good 

Once it’s alight and 20 minutes later just stick the food on

They are doing Pork Shoulder for £2 a kg at the moment if anyone fancies a bit of Pulled Pork this weekend, or stocking up the freezer. I get mine from the the Butchers Counter, get them to remove the rind and retie it for me. Far better at it than me.😀

Love Morrison’s now ! 

Got a whole 4.5 kg shoulder for £9. They removed the rind, left a nice cap of fat (massive piece of crackling for the weekend) and split into 2 pieces and retied them for me. In the freezer now for the future. Can't remember it being this cheap for 5 years or more? Wish I had a bigger freezer at times 🙁.

Good value. Crackling. You need the rind for decent crackling? At least that is what I do. Heavily scored rind and fat. Bit of oil and salt rubbed in. Grandmas recipe.

I have to watch the carbs and sugars now, but was looking at a food dehydrator a few months ago to make my own pork scratchings from pork rind. Although had to kick that into touch now, they looked delicious.

Sirloin steak at the butchers counter £13.00 a kg at the moment. Nice price and you can have the steak cut to the size and thickness you prefer, from the counter

Sirloin is lovely. Have you ever roasted a joint of sirloin. It’s so juicy.

Actually bought a kg piece yesterday, that the butcher sliced from a 2.5-3kg joint, but I intend to slice into 3 pieces. As I love the afterburner method at the moment. Something I will try in the future though.

Also forgot to put the ribs are £4 a kg and the pork shoulder joints £2.50 A KG certainly till the weekend, not sure after that though.
