    Wow! where does this guy live where crap salami is $15/lb ? The crap salami where I live is $3-6/lb and it isn't that bad at all. This is like watching Motor Week: Lots of praise for BMW and Lexus when a Civic will get you where you need to go. All that's missing is that self-congratulatory English accent so many American tards conflate with authority and expertise.

    I feel like you guys are doing this backwards. The moment the expert gets to see the product, they already, especially due to their expertise, have a million and one biases about which one is going to be better. They're experts for a reason so more often than not it won't matter, but the real test would be to have them taste them blind before doing a visual analysis.

    Look, I'm sure this guy is actually very good with meat, probably very knowledgable about meat too, he seems like a chill guy too, but the test were plain stupid, anyone who has ever had any kind of meat could have told which one of every single product was the more expensive just from looking at them, I mean come on, you guys could have gotten products a little closer in price ranges to actually make it a challenge or to inform people if $30 meat is more worth it than $20 meat, and what to look for ( which he tried doing but it was sometimes a little difficult with the products chosen ). Enjoyed the vid though, the dude is cool!

    These prices are.... really high. Like, I get they're deli meats, but the lower quality meats are around the quality that my grocery store sells pre-packaged for a fraction of the cost :v

    Visually, it was pretty straight forward to tell which one might be the more expensive one. But the snappy editing and detailed explanations with evidently a lot of background knowledge made it really nice to listen to. This guy definitely shows that he knows exactly what he is talking about while still feeling down-to-earth.

    Wat. I expected to see amazing stuff like Chianina and instead it was about salami, wurst, and processed crap? None of that is high quality meat, not even remotely close (but then I'm Italian, I'm aware I'm picky as hell about food :D )

  • kareem jeiroudi

    What does a meat expert mean? I mean, I could also easily tell which meat is the more expensive one. I'm not sure if I could notice all that what the guy comments about the meat, but I can definitely see the quality in production. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that anyone whose job involves trying different types of meat has the ability to distinguish, you don't need to be an expert and there's no such a thing that's called a "meat expert". Probably even a butcher would be able to do the same.

    Well, Here in Italy (and almost all of Europe) is normal to have the best meats, Everything in my town is made in farla Where the Animals live a happy life and they're not filler with steroids like in other countries. It's all natural, and i forgot to say that here the prices are lower. Come in Italy and try some prosciutto, capicollo, pancetta, salame, mortadella, culatello, you will love it.

    No one should buy meat from a pig that was raised in confinement in a crate and fed hormones and grain. That's the very definition of animal cruelty, the meat is not healthy for the human to eat either, it should be completely avoided.
