While reading Mr. Sharp’s biography I came across this interesting quote of his cow camp cook c.1930-1940
“Honest meat comes fromt he carcasses of animals that have become fat on range grass. Cowboys believe it’s tastier, firmer, an’ juicier than them pen-fattened critters what’s been fed molasses, grain, hay an’ a lot of other stuff, so’s they’ll put on what’s called a fast weight gain……”
I have no beef, so to speak :), with corn fed beef, but I can tell you that I have come to prefer the taste and texture of our grass fed meat. It’s all a matter of prespective and what your used to.
