    Chuck is the best , but around here 80/20 ground beef is cheaper and tastes fine

    I personally like a sirloin tip roast.
  5. I have used the cheap grocery store 80/20 GB for sticks and I have used high dollar local grown GB from a butcher shop, and I could not notice a difference, altho sometimes it's not the flavor, or texture people worry about, so as long as you arent trying to eat all organic beef, stick with the cheap stuff
