    All I know is don't expect to get ten inches just because you asked for it.

    Finally a quality, well-considered question.  Thank you, good sir.

     My opinion: an inch and a half.  And I'm not talking about the 1.5" steak your wife brings back from the butcher, which isn't even maybe an inch thick.  No I mean one that is legit, get out the ruler, 1.5 inches thick.  Anything more and you're approaching roast category.

    All i know is that at a certain point, what someone is calling a steak is actually a roast

    some of these tomahawk “steaks” are just a ribroast with a bone sticking out of it

    If searing holds all the juice in, if I sear on a grill grate, does the juice just get held in where the grate "brands" the meat? 

    Also, where can I get some "Man Grates"?

    The real question around here is: when is the last time fishless has pooped in a heated bathroom?

    Dude goes from unheated attic bathroom to a machine shop bathroom, to a camp bathroom, to an icefishing bucket

    Hold on fish, spring is right around the corner

    I’m not convinced fishless poops.  He mostly seems to be full of sh!t.

  • We just had a cow processed and the steaks cut 1.25 but I think the next will be 1.50. Honestly I think 1.375 would be perfect but the butcher might not deal in eighths.

    Everyone understands miles.

    1.375" = 2.170139e-5 miles = 0.00002170139 mi

    No need to  deal in eighths, since 1.375 is decimal

    Maybe one day we'll join the rest of the civilized world and we can all just say our steaks should be 35-40mm thick.

    Although not able to speak and defend himself, Henry VIII would joust  (although not very well) on the importance, of eighths, and perhaps wives and mistresses. He has no known decedents as all those recognized at birth from his wives, all leaving no descendants.

    However there are thought to be several that were birthed from mistresses that were never recognized by the crown, except one; Fitzroy, who also left no descendants.

    Eighths matters. Kind of.
