I didnt find Burger Kings angus burger to really be that good. I like my burgers rare. They cook the heck out of it.

Obviously I've never eaten one of Mickey D's angus burgers...probably never will... as I don't do Mcdonalds. However; it is really a great marketing ploy!!

I have gotten a big kick over all this Angus beef hysteria. Some folks think it's a superior breed for beef cattle, but again, it all depends upon how the Angus beef is raised.... could just be "feed lot beef" like most of the beef that's on the market today, and if Burger King and Mickey D's are selling it, you can be sure it is mass-produced. otherwise they would have to charge more for it than their audience is willing to pay.
