Dry aged, but to be honest I rarely specify. I just get my meat from Sam's and I don't age it at home.

Do you do your own aging or do you have a butcher who sells aged meats?

There's a butcher nearby and also Smith & Wollensky. The bankroll isn't quite there to make the choice myself aside from a couple times per year, but business presents plenty of opportunities for the good stuff.

I prefer dry aged meat. It is more tender and has a little more flavor.
Too bad I really only eat it when I go out to the fancy shmancy steak houses.








This poll should be null and void for all those well done steak with ketchup eaters. lol.

Dry, of course. Get most of my steaks directly from a butcher my dad knows (through my dad's cows). ;-D

Call me a Californian, but I have never heard of either of these terms...
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Wow, I had no idea. My great-grandfather owned a deli/meat market in the 50's...
