Where do you get your meat?

Just curious.

I usually get my:

- Hamburgers from Save On Meats. I find $6 for a pack of 6 delicious store made burgers a pretty good deal. I mean I should make them myself but I find this the next best thing. I also find anything else at the store hilariously expensive. Maybe I should look better.

- Stewing beef from Costco. My chili batches are big enough that Costco's bulk sizes are too small. Haven't calculated it but I assume this is the cheapest I can buy 4-5 kilos of decent stewing beef.

- Steaks, pork, whatever good is on special: T&T on Abbott. As a broke-ass grad student I'm naturally attracted to the cheapness. And their steaks are surprisingly good.

I'm always on the lookout for good meat sources, so tell me about your favorite place.

PS: Other than the stewing beef, which I buy in enough bulk that it's justified, I just don't find Costco that cheap for meat. Am I wrong here?

PPS: I was so excited about the butcher shop that opened across the corner from Sunrise Market on Powell and Gore. But then I saw their prices. Even tried going there twice but never could force my hand into my pocket to get the wallet. It just wouldn't do it.
