the blind Meat Cutter

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by stevegomes, Aug 7, 2007.

  1. hello.
    I am Steve the blind meat cutter from Denver Colorado. I am really blind and I got the name blind meat cutter from my friend Doctor Paul Gingrich who was a meat cutter for a store called Alfalfa's in boulder. I wanted to learn how to cut up whole chickens and he said "Let us close our eyes and cut meat and see how we do and we will call you if we think we can do it" So he called later and said come in tomorrow at 0800 and we will try it. He introduced me to customers as our new blind meat cutter. I learned how to make sausage and have all kinds of fun preparing food. Well, I need a new hobby and a new toy. I am going to get the Weber smoky Mountain soon. I am gona want to learn how to smoke brisket and pork and sausage. Right now I am on the virtual Weber board and am learning a lot there. So lets see if we can get any fatter and have fun. You can go to my web site and read the stories and see pictures of me and my Irish Catholic guide dog Finnegan.

    Welcome to SMF Steve!!! The WSM is an excellent beginners smoker IMO and TVWBB is a great resource to learn the nuances of mastering it.

    Welcome Steve to SMF ... I'd love to hear more about your support group and how you manage your life. I think we could learn a lot by emulating how you learned to cut meat by feel.
    Hope we can be of some help to you, but I suspect we'll learn more from you.
    Again welcome!

    Welcome aboard Steve and Finnegan! I was wondering how you read the blog also. There is a ton of useful knowledge, and being a butcher you'll have the best cuts of meat. Can you "feel" the difference in well marbled cuts of beef??? I hope it's ok to ask these question..[​IMG]

    My cousin is blind and his computer talks to him. It reads the post to him. Kind of kewl. He's faster at searching the net than I am and I can see pretty well - relatively speaking. [​IMG]
