I never quite object to spearating fopr this reason... just the use of the premium "Booty Meat" for burnt ends. Of course, this is fine at home. And frankly I am the type of guy that complains about you doing it but growls at you if you try to take your burnt ends back. LOL MMMMMM
Hey, Neil, after all, you got to separate it because how can you attack a Booty [sic] of you don't attack from the back?
