Meat in the Firehall

Postby FF30 » Sat Apr 22, 2006 9:05 am

I'm just curious, in general is there alot of meat eaten in the firehall? Like for the big dinners n' stuff...would you say it's a daily thing? What about barbeques? What happens when people have different dietary habits. For instance, what if someone doesn't eat pork, or beef, or is a vegetarian. If one was to just bring their own lunches/dinners or cook for themselves, would it be offensive to the "team".

Thats an easy one "Yes" to the lots of meat eaten. If someone is a vegetarian or has a special diet they will usuallly fend for themselves but we still eat as a crew regardless.......BC......

Yes, I second that...lots of meat! We have some general rules for portion size when we're shopping...sometimes it seems like a very large amount of meat to be buying, but generally there aren't a lot of leftovers LOL.

We try to get a minimum of 150 grams of meat (give or take) per guy for sandwiches that we may be making (turkey, corned beef for reubens etc.) If we're making something bigger, like a burger, a meatloaf, some sort of steak, our rule of thumb is one pound of meat per guy.

If I'm buying steaks for the 10 guys at my hall for dinner, I'll usually get three of those club sized packs from Safeway, thats usually 12 to 15 good sized steaks, so everyone will get a steak and a bit. I think those are usually about 1.5 to 2kg per pack, so thats like 12 pounds of meat, or 1.2 pounds a guy.

Really it's a lot easier to figure out than it sounds...just shop until you have more than you think you'll need, and you should just have enough :rolleyes:

I personally have not come across any vegetarians in the fire service. The vegetarians I have met in my life could certainly not pull my carnivorous ass out of a fire. :D
