Local delicatessens allow people to eat fresh cuts of meat without the need to hunt or to build a train and run over a herd of winged buffalo. Let someone else do the dirty work with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of beef, pork, chicken, and deli meats at Howard & Sons in Munster, IN.
For more than 55 years, the Howard family has furnished family tables in beef and grade-A chickens frozen on-site at the farm. So many cuts of meat, such as the sirloin steak ($8.49/lb), arrive in prices so low you might take home the whole shop. Whole chickens ($1.79/lb) might slap your face with their enormous wings, and a plethora of Boar's Head deli meats stocks sandwiches in deluxe ham ($4.49 for a 1/2 lb) and oven-gold turkey ($5.19 for a 1/2 lb). Like watermelons, the homemade italian sausages ($3.99/lb) are so juicy people might float away, or customers can face the perils of fainting by engorging on plates of beef hot dogs ($4.95/lb).
