Many thanks to Civil Eats and Tri-City Herald for the wonderful mentions of The Butcher’s Guide to Well-Raised Meat!  Here is an excerpt from the Civil Eats article, but to read the entire posts, click here and here.

“Trials and tribulations aside, this book is mostly a lot of fun. Inquisitive home cooks will love the copious diagrams and charts that dissect all aspects of meat animals and meat cooking. The Applestones make a point of encouraging whole-animal cooking, which means they explain how to cook every cut, especially the lesser-known cuts that require slow, low heat methods.”
