Metro had this deal 2-3 months ago. After dissecting a lamb leg, I estimate only 40% of the weight is meat. But you can make soup from the bones

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

The title should have been frozen rather than fresh lamb. Is frozen food really fresh?

Last 2 fresh lamb leg sale at Food Basics either didnt happen or they didnt have much stock. In 1 case i went on a tuesday and there was nothing. Next sale i went on a Sat and there was no stock. I bet the same thing will happen again for this week's sale.

My thoughts exactly. This is frozen lamb. False advertising really.

I am not a meat connoisseur, but I recommend Ontario lamb. IMO, most other lamb has a mutton flavor that can be very strong

I would argue that's why you eat lamb. I'm disappointed in lamb that is not gamey.

I wish local lamb wasn't at least 2x the price. Insane that it is cheaper to ship meat halfway across the world than it is to raise it here.

is this actually frozen in those vacuum seal bags? or are they frozen for transport and thawed to say "fresh"?

not perfect, but better than nothing.

for skewers, you want some fatty shoulder meat.

I got them last time and they didn’t seem defrosted. actually fresh and in vacuum packaging. How would you tell to be able to acuse them of defrauding us?

For the people in this thread (@roosters6879, @andreid, @bya1998) who question whether the lamb is "really fresh" and suggest that it was "previously frozen": give your head a shake and stop spreading your silly conspiracy theories.
New Zealand lamb cuts have been sold fresh in Canada for more than 50 years.
It is vacuum packed, but it has never been stored below zero degrees Celsius, therefore it is legal to sell it as fresh meat.
Because it is packed and handled in very hygienic conditions at their meat-packing plants, New Zealand vacuum-packed lamb stored between zero and plus one degree Celsius has a "best before date" of 6 weeks minimum (from the packing day).
The boat from New Zealand reaches Canada in two weeks. This leaves plenty of time for the lamb to be sold fresh in every corner of Canada.

There is a separate trade category, namely New Zealand "frozen lamb", which is also widely available, but that cannot be legally sold as "fresh" in Canada.
