Weighing in late on this thread (because I am on the road):  I wrote a paper on this long ago (not published), looking at various suttas in the Suttanipaata on this subject (Kasibhaaradvaajasutta, etc.).  Some of this same material is discussed in:

Oliver Freiberger, “The Ideal Sacrifice:  Patterns of Reinterpreting Brahmin Sacrifice in Early Buddhism.”  Bulletin d'Études Indiennes 16 (1998).
