    I mean all of these were dead obvious... and the only one out of that list I'd eat would be the $4 bologna. Frankly expensive food just makes me think of all the things I'd rather spend that money on so I never enjoy it. I'd much rather pan fry some $5.95 a pound chuck eye than drop $50+ on a steak that frankly tastes exactly the same but slightly more tender.

    I liked that he was honest about the flavor of the cheaper ones. He could still tell if they were cheaper, but he was honest if they still tasted good. Sometimes I feel like some of these experts go full food snob and exaggerate how unappetizing the cheaper stuff is.

    Seems like a great guy. He can obviously tell at first sight which meats are of poorer quality but he still tries to be positive with both. Really great informative video.

    well we do have a salami specialty here known for its hardness (ahle stracke) so they would fail that one test :) 35 USD for a lbs of salami? jeez why is that so expensive as opposed to let's say italy?

    Not that I don't love the explanations they give in which I often do learn a thing or two, but I rarely can't tell which is the more expensive in this series, so it being a challenge to them is kinda silly.

    Those salamis at the start nearly made me throw up. Just google Pick Salami and you will see what i mean, fat is a part of it sure, but not fat as thick as your finger, gotta at least mill it some. Also the less fat there is the better cause you know they actually used meat. Cant really have the mould taste matter if you are chowing down on pieces of solid fat the size of a coin.

    As a spaniard, I'm glad Jamon Serrano Iberico de Bellota is appreciated in the here in the US. It's really really difficult to find here, I usually only have it when I visit my family back in Spain. I usually end up eating quite a lot when I visit because there's a lot of good food I don't have the rest of the time while i'm here.

    What I'm taking away from this is I should become a "meat expert". I could tell the more expensive meat before he started talking. Or, they chose drastic quality meats intentionally and I should just sit back down and continue being a sad pig.

    I went to a german deli and bought some high end bologna for around 10 bucks per pound....found it to be flavorless and bland. Went to the 99 cent store and found a 1 pound package of some commercially produced had a better texture, more seasoning, and better flavor than the deli version. I hadn't eaten bologna in probably 20 years and doubt I will eat it again in another 20 but it was an interesting experiment for sure. As far as ham goes..... Try Kirkland Brand Master Carve Ham for $2.39 /lb (Costco). Has the same markings as the smaller more expensive ham he tasted here, and is delicious...they are larger than the one here and one disadvantage is that you have to slice it yourself, but at the price point, it' fantastic.

    Lost my attention and respect when he said the pig raised for the cheaper prosciutto was probably given hormones. There are NO FDA approved hormones for use in pork or poultry. A meat producer ought to know that.

    I worked in a deli counter of a European supermarket chain for 7 years. I can tell you the price of all of these products off the top of my head (the price they would retail here) and I was not wrong on any, except the Spanish prosciutto. Here we had a type of it sold for 45€/kg (about 100$/lb). A bargain 😁
