I can think of two reasons for the meat. One is simple - there is a old saying in Judaism (from the days when neither was more than weekly fare any way) - "There is no simcha [joy] without meat and wine." Every meal in the sukkah should be a celebration (that's why I suggested bread with each meal.)
Another (and this is pure speculation) may harken all the way back to Temple days, when there would be massive, and ever-increasing, extra daily sacrifices during the week of Sukkot. This is a pilgrimage festival as well, so Jerusalem would be filled with people. It just makes sense that the extra meat (once the priests and Levites get their shares) would be distributed to the crowds. I could easily be wrong - anyone know what happened to all the Sukkot sacrifices? ~- One sharp pepper is better than a basketful of melons. --Jewish Proverb
