Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

I was referring to the piles of stuff that is common on today's burgers, such as bacon, cheese, onions, mushrooms etc.

"Today's burgers" -- whew, that sounds reeeal old, Madsci.

Regardless, good beef has plenty of flavor, and doesn't require the toppings today's youths prefer either. What you seem to fail to acknowledge is that there isn't a commodity goat market the way there is a commodity beef market; there is really no such thing as cheap, mediocre goat. It's all raised the way good beef is raised, more or less. Good beef, on the other hand, is only a percentage of All Beef Out There.

Sorry Madsci, apparently my intended jokey tone didn't carry. Saying that all beef is flavorless seemed like an odd position to stake out.

Close. I'd say it's more like treating all food with respect.

Apology accepted. I took the first sentence as jokey, the rest seemed to me like preaching down to the choir. But then that you are a food critic and I am a farmer with different food tastes.

I 100% agree pasture raised livestock are a whole lot tastier than feed lot raised livestock. You can taste the difference in the end product whether it be eggs, milk, or meat. It would be ideal if everybody could afford to eat the good stuff and keep the small family farms viable.

BTW Old billy goat is a little too tasty for me. I like mine young.

I hope that they're not reading back "I like mine young." at your trial.

Joke!

It isn't a crime to like young meat... maybe I better stop now.
