You guys, I have a new toy. For all of my meaty needs, which is exciting particularly because fall is fast approaching, and I will be hunting a lot of meat. Since so many of you ask me the best way to store meat and fish after a successful outdoor adventure, I thought I’d share my experience with it and show you how it works.

“How to Pair Wine with Food”

“The Best Tools for Home Butchering”

A reader of this site recently asked me to do a blog post on what tools are needed for home butchering, so this is for you girlfriend. Home butchering is such a fun past time, and if you learn how to do it yourself you can save a lot of money. Buying a whole animal from a farm, for example, will allow you to break it down into all of […]
