If so what has been your experience with this set and are they worth the money. The one I looked at the other day was about 40 bucks.

40 bucks for a set of meat cutting knives is a joke. Might as well buy a few P-38 can openers. I process wild game during the seasons. I'd recommend a couple of boning knives, a 12 inch steak knife, a boning hook, a steel, a fine grade shapening stone & a dedicated skinning knife. I prefer the Forschner products. If you would be interested I'l give you the product numbers. Or, I could take a few pics and send them to you. You would spend a few more bucks but, if you are going to do the job get the tools that are designed for it. Buying those gimmickery sets are like trying to loosen a nut with pliers instead of using the proper wrench.

i own a set and i like them for the money. yea its cheaper than others but im also a poor college student. Last year i used it to cut up a doe and i thought it worked great and it got the job done. I did have one handle break on me on one of the knives and i took it back and they gave me a new set and have yet to have one break. So really it all depends on if you wanna spend money on a nice set or one thats cheaper and will work just fine.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
