Is the poor ninth-grader who’s all alone in your local grocery store’s meat market in the evenings clueless with your meat questions?
Can you recommend a good cut of steak? What’s the difference between spareribs and baby back ribs? What makes a better burger – ground chuck or ground round? Is it hard to cut up a chicken? What does it mean to cut against the grain? Is Angus really better beef?
I am building meatshop101 as an alternative source of quality and easy-to-follow information for meat consumers everywhere! As a veteran butcher of 20 years, my experience in the retail meat industry has been thorough. Although cutting and processing meat is a gratifying trade once you’ve learned it, the most enjoyable part for me was always the interaction with customers! It was always a real point of pride for me to answer your questions and to see you head off feeling very confident about your meat selection!
This is the experience I want to give you at meatshop101. Having retired from meat cutting now, meatshop101 is also an opportunity for me to stay in the game and continue enjoying the part of my work I loved the most..you, the customer! As the name meatshop101 implies, the ‘entry-level’ meat consumer will find a wealth of basic and easy to understand info here. But it doesn’t stop there.. the accomplished carnivore is certainly also welcome. You will find plenty of useful information and techniques that won’t insult your meat intelligence!
The goal of meatshop101 is really very simple..to give you what you came for. I will arm you with the how to’s, the whys and the how much’s that will empower you to make better choices when buying and preparing meat, to not feel lost or overwhelmed. I’ll teach you everything you need to know about meat, everything you want to know. Having managed meat markets and observed the ins & outs of the retail meat industry for 20 years, I can be your insider, sharing the tips and tricks that will make you the insider..and the expert!
Think of me as your personal online meat professional! But don’t worry; I won’t tell your butcher…
