    Bacon is good. I love dry sausage like they make up north(Fryslan), and anything smoked.

    Little beats a steak roasted over open fire though.

    No, but i know when i was a kid, the voice of abc's commercials for their shows was Ernie 'Ghoulardi' Anderson, i was a fan of Drew Carey's 90's series, he wore a Ghoulardi shirt often and dedicated an episode to Anderson's passing, i was intrigued and did some digging, i enjoy old horror films and b movies, i also watched Ghoulardi clips on youtube and read the book on him.

    Ribs. Yum.
    Whenever I'm in Texas for business I make a point of tracking down the best Q because the bummer is, there's not much to be had in SoCal.

    I really feel that eating vegetables feels better to me just because of my stomach does not hurt afterwards.

    Besides that I feel guiIty to kill such beautiful animals like cows just to eat them.
    I more and more try to avoid meat or at least reduce it. But I do accept that eating animals is part of our nature. And it is neccessary to feed us somehow. Beacon and veal cutlet is still yummie to me.
    But I really want to stop the cruel industry behind it.

    When I was young meat was very expensive and my family was not rich at all.
    So my mother was usually cooking deliciously vegan food from mondays to saturdays and serving some quality meat on sundays when my dad was at home. That was done simply because of economics.
    I consider this to be healthy and overall an ethically o.k. approach as long as you know the animal you are eating.
    We used to buy the meat from neighboured farmers who`s animals were running freely around and living a good life.
    Over here it was a good tradition to slaughter a pig or a cow once a year and using all of it`s remains. Usually three or four families where part of this and nothing was wasted.

    When I was in my late teens my girlfriend took me to a slaughterhouse and I was so nauseated that I was not able to eat any meat for years. A really disgusting experience that had nothing to do with home-slaughtering.
    My later wife was a vegan, too and I complied. Believe me: I never had an gourmet-wise more pleasing phase in my life.
    So my message is: We are carnivors by nature but we a are able to eat alternative delicious food.
    It is ethically not acceptable to industrially kill our fellow creatures.
    The times where we hunted and killed animals ourselves are long gone and even our ancestors had meat only every now and then. So should we.

    It's between really perfectly smoked Texas brisket and authentic Gyro.

    Meatsis is sweet:

    Where I live a lot of meat is hunted and or killed locally. Others from the industry. But hunting and home slaughtering is not gone here.
