not sure of the processing laws in your area but, the butcher can thaw slowly and then process. I had the same issue last year. Actually, if you plan to cut steaks, do it yourself while frozen, its the easiest way for a clean cut. get a 24" meat saw, and saw those back legs, saw the backstraps into chops etc. In a conversation with my butcher last year he said the meat can be thawed once for processing without an issue. Check out cabelas for the meat saw.
