Meat in the South

My mom made me Taco Rice yesterday. Oh so yummy! I don't know what she does to make it taste better than mine...but I could live off hers!

So we are sitting on the couch eating and I'm telling her how good it is. And her reply -

"Eh...I can tell a difference in the taste of the meat down here than up in Chicago"

WTF? A different taste in hamburger???

Am I totally off my rocker or are there different tastes to hamburger according to where you are and buy it?

I don't know about hamburger but Napster and I can tell a difference in the cut meats in TLTTF.
One plus about being in cattle country. The meat is superb.

yes, there is a difference in meat. Meat down south is a lot better than meat in the north, another thing is that BBQ in the south (especially in texas, where it can't be matched) is the best.

You couldn't tell it by me. Cow is cow!

Nebraska beef beats all. Seriously.

Back home we would get beef from "farm cattle" from family. YUM......

I had some burgers not too long ago that were walking around as a cow the week before.

Have to say that the meat was definately better.

There is even a difference in meat from the grocery store vs. an actual meat market. Like night and day. I can't even stand the smell of grocery store beef. It is like spam for me. It is well worth the extra money for good beef.
