For some reason, the tough NY steak thread made me think of this.
Obviously done by a city boy?
I have never seen a "he" cow? Then again these days? Oh well......
As far as grinding cow meat? Thinking what else I might do to it??
I'm sure my parents and grandparents had the skill to salvage the meat off a used up old milker?
For better cuts, we knew how to make steers out of bull calves?
With fringe benefits!
Good luck and good smoking.
