                A) Great video, as usual.

                B) I’ve always thought that the only reason to be in Dallas was to change planes to get somewhere else. However, if there’s a joint serving a meaty ode to Cutlets, that just might be a motivation for a stopover.

                C) Mutton Chops is from Long Island? The only explanation that I can come up with for his folksy accent is that he grew with no role models other than Imus In the Morning.

                          Not even the dry age burger from Peter Luger is over $20 ($14), so if you’re paying a $20+ for a burger you’re an idiot

                              As a native Dallasite, that grew up within literally within a mile between Knife and Kellers, I in a decade-plus did not see anyone wear a cowboy hat once. I know it makes for good content, but its 2019

                                      For as much as a burger snob as I am, McDonald's gave me some solid perspectives early on about burger dynamics. I used to wonder why many people preferred the Quarter Pounder to the bigger Big Mac which had all the fixings. After having both I realized there were 4 huge differences and they all were about the meat. More flavor, juicier, better sear and the burger stayed hotter because it wasn’t thinner and surrounded with cold fixings. I agree with Chef John, there is a burger and there is a burger sandwich.
