So I read this as the money muscle still has to be attached when it starts cooking. Is that correct? If so, it says once cooked stuff can be separated. What defines "cooked"? A specific temp? I thought the big change was that people could just be cooking money muscles completely separate and not have to wait till the whole butt is "cooked".
Either way doesn't really matter to me. Just wanting to know what they mean
Not really. There is no longer a minimum cook weight. "Hey, I trimmed my butt and all that was left was the money muscle!"
