    I fear Dexter is somewhere in the comments studying how to butcher a human carcass while the rest of us simply want to learn how to butcher out of survival and benign curiosity.

    Thank you for sharing how you cut my meat up. Very interesting.

  • Allan Apel on February 15, 2020

    First time I've ever seen this process through. Very professionally, eloquently narrated to compliment the fabulous craftmanship with the respect it deserves. Thank you. I like the description of the cuts related to the type of gastronomy they become. I wish I'd learned this in school because we have this terminology all around us and let's face it, this has been done for centuries. Then again, Henry VIII liked his food, nice curriculum opportunity . . .
