How far will $30 take you?

Do you think you could get enough meat for 7 meals with $30 or less?  I just bought a full beef brisket tonight when I went grocery shopping.  It was $2.58/lb and total cost was about $28.  I now have a brisket that I can bbq (meal 1), 6 small strip steaks (2), a big pile of stew beef (3, 4), 3 piles of thin sliced meat for stir-fry or fajitas (5, 6, 7).

And to top it off, I've got a nice big bowl of fat sitting on my counter waiting to become rendered tallow.

Yes of course. I can buy chicken and make taquitos that could last a week.
