Okay Lex, I'm going to try suet again, as soon as I can get some. It's pretty awful in the initial stages of rendering, but who knows... probably much better than tallow, but that isn't really saying much.

I did have some smoked suet once. that was actually alright but it was smoked pretty well in terms of flavor.

I guess the reason I use tallow is because it is a rendered fat, and it can melt and mix in with the other flavors. Also, when I first started rendering I had in mind eating cooked meat - but now I really don't have much of preference.

I do my own rendering so it would be awesome to quit that. And I have a large amount left, but it doesn't expire, so that's fine.

Lex, I admire your commitment to the diet.

I eat the pet-food from Marin-sun farms. the cost is 2.69 per lb! I learned about marin-sun farms from your journal.

I cook it though, and add onions, garlic and ginger powder, and red pepper because I never got around the smell/taste of it. And I put in about 1 ounce of butter and 1 ounce of tallow per lb.

the one thing I eat raw, is ground heart from marin-sun farms. that has a completely neutral taste, so i just heat it a bit and add butter and salt and pepper.

 I really dislike the smell and taste of tallow. I'm wondering if this is a certain genetic thing because I've heard varying opinions on the taste of tallow - and I just can't imagine anyone enjoying it.

On the guru topic, I have a favorite. Gurdjieff. my three favorite books are by gurdjieff or by his pupils. I read these in the last two years. Nothing I read previously can really compare to it.

Hi Lex thank you for the response. I just felt like I needed confirmation that you think grass fed muscle meat is superior to grain fed. But I believe this myself so I'm not sure why I had to ask you. I guess to confirm--and now I understand your guide is for a wide audience, not people eating a "paleo" diet necessarily.

In California I’ve found that Marin Sun Farms in the San Francisco area is a very good supplier but it means an all day trip up and back from where I live in Los Angeles as they won’t ship. This is fine for a fat run once a year, but not reasonable for small amounts of lean meat
I was wondering what your SF source for the grass fed fat was, because I live in San Francisco, and now you have told me. Thanks.

Hi Lex, I was reading the guide you wrote on making a jerky drier. I noticed you said that your brought the meat for less than 3 dollars a pound at Costco. I think Costco probably only sells grain fed.  So, you do not use grass fed meat to make the jerky?

Why not?

I ask you this, because I am placing an order with Slankers, and getting 2 "eye of round roasts". This roast is 6 dollars a pound however. expensive compared to what I could get at Costco. And I have to wonder if the diet (grass vs grain) affects the nutritional quality of the muscle meat. I hear all the time it affects the fat. I assume the same with the muscle cells, but your guide has confused me. because it says you use meat from Costco.
