walk­ing into a butcher’s shop

Maxim - - THE MAXIM GUIDE TO BUTCHERY - by MA TT BER­I­CAL and CHRIS WIL­SON

can be in­tim­i­dat­ing, what with all the hunks of meat dan­gling from metal hooks and the guy in an apron Jack­son Pol­lock–ed with blood. But rest as­sured: that cleaver is not meant for you. The butcher is your friend, equal parts culi­nary guide and meat carver, ready to ed­u­cate you on ev­ery­thing from the best un­sung cuts to how to cook the meat he’s hack­ing up for you. Here, we un­lock some of meat’s most en­dur­ing mys­ter­ies, with an as­sist from the mas­ter butch­ers at Amer­ica’s great­est chop shops.
