By the way, I am good friends with the three shop's owners and I would never ask or accept their bottled sauces or meats for free. I can afford my life because people pay for my services, they are in business so they can eat as well as I do. A good friend or customer understands that if you draw too much from the well, pretty soon, nobody is drinking.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
