The rules are simple! Buy a great piece of meat and don't mess it up! Then...
Have Fun & Enjoy!!
We are a HUGE advocate of folks getting to know their local butcher shops.
I'd post the one we go to here but alas this board has the "link police" in full force... :(
Anywho.. we get our meats from a local butcher who's now a friend of the familiy and I"d even eat the hamburger he sells raw - that's how much we trust him and the best-of-class products he sells..
We actually ended up moving about 45min away from him a few years ago but still go to him because his products are far superior to any of the shops that are more local to us now.
