This episode is sponsored by truLOCAL. truLOCAL partners with local farmers and butchers (in your area) to source the best meat available. Serving 100’s of cuts of beef, lamb, buffalo, and chicken; truLOCAL even offers cuts that you can’t get at the grocery store. My favourite is their lamb and striploin.
