[Sca-cooks] Meat cheat sheet?

I believe someone here once posted a cheat sheet for beef, with a quick 
explaination of what cuts are best for, like, crock pot or grill or 
whatever.  I can't find it - I thought I bookmarked it.  Would someone 
be so kind as to post that linkie again, pretty please?  :)

And, does anybody have a similar link for pork?

This might be really stretching it, but does anyone know of a site that 
would help me figure out how much of what one would get out of each part 
of a cow or pig?  Whenever I order a quarter of beef or a side of pig, 
they ask me for processing instructions, and I don't know what to tell 
them.  Like, how many cuts of steak and roast should I ask for before 
what's left for ground meat is all super fatty?  Things like that.

Thank you!
