Someone else, Hawaii Gator, not me, said that about the filet sizes. In that thread about favorite cuts of steaks I responded to a poster who mentioned chuck eye steaks, and when you mentioned your surprise that people chose 7 bone roasts over blade roasts, I merely explained why that was so. I did not correct you.....I simply, factually, logically, and correctly explained something to you from the perspective of a former supermarket owner/operator. I don't understand why that should have elicited such a defensive response. You seem to feel like you've been attacked just by virtue of my having known something about retail meat merchandising that you did not. I wasn't trying to show you up.....I was just imparting some knowledge. As for spare ribs, I was just pointing out that if a person thought those discarded portions were enjoyable as part of a spare rib, why pay for them and then have them trimmed off and kept by the supermarket, when for the same money, a person would have them to actually eat? Doesn't that make sense? I wasn't ripping on you for not having the knowledge to know what to do with the discarded parts, especially since when buying St. Louis ribs, you don't actually END UP with those discarded parts, and therefore, how to otherwise make use of them was not even a part of this discussion. Seriously, if you go back and read that thread on steaks with an open mind, I am confident that you will see that there was no attack made on you by me. I was just imparting some information from the unique perspective of a supermarket owner/operator, which I assume is not a part of your professional background, so how could that have been an attack on you? You know....the readers of this forum could make use of some knowledge from the very unique perspective of an independent supermarket owner.....there are very few of us out there.
