gf130615meat_cookbook.jpgBruce Aidells is the man behind Aidells Sausage Company and the author of several great books on meat and sausage. His most recent cookbook is The Great Meat Cookbook. He explains how to decode meat labels in the grocery store. Learn about the difference between grass fed, natural and naturally raised.

He recommends buying beef at a local farmers market or at a reputable grocery store or butcher. If you do not have access to quality beef in your neighborhood you can order online from:

B&N Ranch in Northern California
White Oak Pastures in Georgia

Aidells suggests using the less popular cuts of beef like tri tip and top sirloin steaks to throw on the grill. He also suggests enhancing the flavor with a marinade or spice rub.
