    Texas A&M Rosenthal Meat Center?

    Hey all,

    For those of us in Texas, has anyone picked up meat from Texas A&M's Rosenthal Meat Center? https://agrilife.org/rosenthal/price-list/

    They are the premier Meat Science program in Texas (although Texas Tech would almost certainly dispute that).

    I watched their videos. They're fascinating. Between Rosenthal and Bearded Butchers, I've upped my meat cutting knowledge tremendously during the past few months.

      I used to buy there all the time when I was in college and even ate lunch there - they had sausage wraps that we would microwave. I try to stop in when I pass through town. Back when I started college A&M had a creamery to process the milk from their teaching dairy farm. They made and sold ice cream at Rosenthal - it was better than Blue Bell! They have some great beef jerky and their pork chops have a hefty ring of fat around them, just the way I like them unlike grocery store pork chops that have about a 1/32" ring of fat - stupid health craze.

        Going from undergrad at Clemson to grad school at A&M was a real disappointment when it set in that A&M didn't have a creamery and I had only been to Clemson's a couple times

      I stop by when we go visit our son at A&M. I for sure stock up on jerky, after that I just have to see what they have and what the prices are. I like thick steaks so the Cowboy Ribeye box is better than the dry aged prime ribeyes for the same price. The selection changes so if you have the complete list then they won’t have everything on it, they do have good sales usually at the end of the month to move stuff out so they can bring different stuff in. it’s all frozen so be prepared with a cooler if you’re going to take stuff home. We rented a condo with some friends last year for a game and I took my Jumbo Joe and cooked every night which made for a cheap weekend except for the tickets to the game.

        I would respectfully dispute that. Guns Up 😜

          I occasionally drive up there to meet with some A&M System colleagues, but have yet to go by the Meat Center/store, which is why I asked. College Station is a nice two hour one-way drive (construction on Hwy 290 not withstanding) from where I am.

          The campus to this day intimidates me. I still can't believe how huge it is. And A&M has its own airport. An airport. I want an airport at my university.

          The first time I saw Kyle field, my jaw dropped. I had never seen a stadium that big.

            As mentioned above, it's all frozen so be prepared. That's why I only went maybe once or twice a year when I was in grad school even though it was on my walk to the rec. Still the only reliable source of beef ribs in BCS, only other option is gamble on HEB or Readfield's having some that aren't cut short.

            Definitely not worth a four hour round trip on its own. Especially since you've already got Houston. But if you're already visiting TAMUS folx it's worth planning into your schedule at least once.

            Their outreach program does look fabulous, wish I had the dough (or tried to persuade my advisor) to pay for one of the classes.

              Aggie dad and granddad here. Thanks for the tip. I will definitely alert my son (a frequent visitor) and two granddaughters (currently enrolled), in case they don't know already.

              My older granddaughter will graduate in the spring and will be going to optometry school in Memphis. My son and I will definitely be visiting her and just might find time to hit a few BBQ joints for a family meat-up.
