    So, actually Rusty,
    there are different parts of a steer, we would never use a cow for this...the chuck is the part ground up for McDonald's burgers, this comes from the shoulder of the steer. May I ask why are you partial to the T-Bone and not a Porterhouse? They are basically the same cut except for one important detail, the T-bone must have the bone in the shape of a T, it must consist of the strip steak and may or may not have a portion of the filet on the other side of the bone, but the mighty Porterhouse MUST contain at least an inch and a half of filet connected to the bone opposite the strip steak side....so as you can see the Porterhouse is definitely a much more desirable cut of meat....since we are educating Rusty on cows and steer and farms and such, I figured I'd take it to the next step, the butcher!

    I chose T bone just to see if you'd bite. Thanks for not disappointing

    Actually, while I do love a good Porterhouse, my personal favorite has always been the ribeye. There's nothing like that extra fat to get the stomach juices flowing. Toss in a baked spud, some fresh green veggies preferably sauteed in garlic butter, and an nice Cab and I'm good to go. But those nights are very rare for me, just like I want my ribeyes. The cardiologist frowns on too much of that

    Rusty seems married to the term "cow". It seems a bit peculiar. There must be SOME reason why he is especially fond of "COW" that he wants to make himself a pariah in the CATTLE OPERATION world of upstate NY and possibly see his plan of stream restoration greatness fail before it takes off. Cow... Cow... Cow... The use of COW den igrates a whole local industry...

    Mighty hunters like Brian don't eat hormone laced, corn fed, methane producing, antibiotic ridden, beef, they eat nature's bounty like, venison, bear, grouse, pheasants, squirrels, and the like. They don't drink milk, they drink fermented and distilled products.

    You've got to make allowances if he's unfamiliar with bovine terminology.
    I'm guessing that he knows the differences between bucks & does, boars & sows, hens & cocks, etc.

    Men and women... Should we add that to your list?
