Chicken breasts jet-netted: Q view

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by dadwith4daughters, Feb 16, 2008.

  1. Am getting ready for a big Q tomorrow. Have 20lbs of ribs and 8lbs of chix breast. Went to Albertsons to get it netted (on sale for 1.68/#). Each "loaf" is 2 whole breasts, halved, and rammed through the netter. Just brined them in sugar and water for 2 hours and then rubbed them. Will keep them overnight in the fridge. I'll try to remember to take pics when I take the nets off. Works great cause you can slice'em just like the deli but they taste a whole lot better and are 1/4 the price.

    The "netting" concept is interesting. Is that how they make deli meat loaves? Do you think any Albertsons will do that if you take the meat to them?

  3. Yup, that's how they do the deli meat. The netter that my Albertsons has is smaller than what you see in the deli counter, but it works fine. You will have to call around to see who's got a netter. This Albertsons just got one about 6 months ago. You'll get strange looks the first time you ask for chix to get netted (I also did turkey breasts netted), but once they do it they'll never forget you. I actually took some leftovers to the butcher as my thanks for doing it. We've been friends ever since.
