      Thanks Don...

    Interesting that Creekstone is so high on the list. I got the impression from their website that they are much smaller. All the brisket that Aaron Franklin buys from them is probably what puts them on that list .


      In my research this company came up a couple of times https://www.canammeats.com/en/products/beef.html


      I got this guy down the road...

        for those uneducated folks, that's LeatherFace from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre story.

      I would think it would be a relatively easy proposition for you all down there. JBS Holding S.A. in San Paulo is probably the largest food processor in the world. They own JBS USA in this country as well as other companies like Swift, Smithfield, Pilgrims Pride Chicken and even a company I featured this month, Imperial American Wagyu.

      I would think being a Brazilian firm it would be possible to contact them directly in SA and cut a deal. That's where I'd start.


        Talked with the agent this morning and is 5 x 40' containers of pork ribs they want. He talked about getting them smoked before shipping. Guess all this comes down to cost at the end of day. Thanks for your help guys.. Am making some calls at the moment.
        I want to cut myself in on some of it if I am the one doing all the leg work
