It's a Jungle out there.
Real BBQ doesn't need hot sauce. You put the chiles in the dry rub.
Grind your own. Go over the whole piece with a torch first. No e. coli can survive that.
Don't forget the workers rendered down into lard.
Good luck with your hormones. Soybeans screw up hormones and sperm counts.
Doesn't matter where the livestock ranches are when the farmers won't provide porta-potties for the field workers.
I always wind up hotting mine up more. Probably they do it mild in Georgia.
Ok, late to the party here, but this right here is EXACTLY why we need government involvement to maintain a free and open market.
Very few if any (probably none) slaughterhouses are run by Snidely Whiplash. Not a single one twirls his mustachios and cracks a whip shouting "Faster, faster, you sluggards!" No, they all see themselves (and probably are, for the most part) as decent people just trying to survive and thrive in a cut throat (NPI) market. (The fact that their "survive and thrive" means they get to live in a big fancy house while their workers struggle is a topic for another screed).
Did I get too convoluted there? Let me try again. Nearly everyone sees themselves as a good person trying to get by. And if getting by means cutting a few corners, taking a few extra risks, with our lives, with their workers fingers, well, it's not really a risk, is it, when you are so good and keep things so (mostly) clean and healthy on your killing floor?
When was the last time that you or someone you know exceeded the speed limit? Even by a little bit? It's the LAW, dammit, and it should be followed to its letters. But we are good and careful drivers, all of us are above average, and we know what we're doing and are perfectly safe at twice the speed limit, much less a paltry 10 miles over.
Same with slaughterhouse owners, bank owners, car manufacturers, probably even most Republicans. They aren't evil. Just ask them, they'll tell you. They may look a little baffled or maybe angry that you would even think such a thing. "Who, me?"
Nobody thinks that they are the bad guy. Even when cutting corners/breaking the law/risking other peoples' lives or livelihoods. That's why we need government involvement in the economy, because people fool themselves and somebody needs to keep watch.
Good time to go vegetarian.
I still have my copy and probably should reread it.
Eat local. Factory pork (and beef & chicken) regardless of price is really questionable. I'm lucky enough to live in a rural area and actually drive by the beef grazing in pastures that I eat on the way to work. I also know who raises the chickens who provide my eggs and meat as well as the hogs that provide my bacon, chops, loins and sausage. I know its a luxury too and I'm grateful.
I certainly hope it does!
I would love to eat a hamberder salad.
Unless you are on the menu.Mrsmc
One more reason not to eat animals.
you don't want a hat dug salad?
I love hat dugs!
i'm surprised that you didn't point out that in some areas (primarily the Carolinas) you can get cole slaw on your hat dugs - that is basically a salad!
