    Looks awesome! Especially the wrap.

    Oddly enough, my favorite part was the Mad Dog 20/20 reference :)

    I think MD 20/20 was the reason I wore a 29" waist all those years. If you got through a bottle without chucking it. You were considered a real drinker. Took a few times to keep a whole bottle down. Actually drank 2 bottles warm once. I marked my day in history then. Cast iron stomach everyone said I had. The stomach wasn't the problem it was getting down your throat as a one way ticket that was the problem.,
    As we got older our taste got more refined, Wild Irish rose then we matured into Boones farm.

    Craig has two pieces of bottom round, not the heel:


    On the left is the bottom round; on the right is part of the rump with the point removed.   

    The heel:


    has a center muscle that is very similar to shank muscle; very tough and sinewy; you seam it out and use it in ground round or shank-type stew meat (you can see it protruding out). It is an extension of the shank, cut off the shank when separated out.  The rest is in layers of lean meat and silver sinew, trimmed out for stew or a couple decent round cube steaks and ground round trim.  Some meatcutters try to merchandise it into a higher-priced cut as heel-of-round roast and tie or ziptie it up.  But, it only sells once; it's tough and sinewy and people don't buy it again unless they pot-roast it, and it doesn't have enough fat for that.  Proves the old saying, "The First Loss is The Best Loss..."

    Ugh.  Mike, the only memories that brought back for me was the morning after...complete with Tylenol and the obligatory bags of half-eaten White Castle.  I am glad those days are over.
     
  14. Unreal. Looks great. You need to write a book. Very good story telling. You had me hooked.

    Boones farm goes with any meal, it's like SODA POP!

    Thanks! I love to stop for pit beef in the Baltimore area. Chaps pitbeef or interstate pit beef. Chaps has a wicked spicy tangy relish that is perfect.

    Need to make this!
