What kind of meat do you like the most?
My mind wandered off to pictures of dry-cured Jamon, but all of a sudden I started picturing myself unable to exist without a stockpile of fish roe or smoked salmon.
To this moment I found no reliable scientific method to decide so instead I chose to mention two of my most favorite meat products that most people worldwide probably haven't heard much of.
#1 Schwarzwälder Schinken (Black Forest Ham)
No, not the processed meat garbage that you have overseas, the REAL Schwarzwälder is a dry cured ham much like Jamon or Prosciutto, with a flavor profile more reminiscent of bacon that usually packs a greater amount of fat than its two drier cousins.
No day goes by without my fridge housing at least a pound of this beauty.
2# Smoked Bacon
"It ain't bacon unless it's smoked." -- Jamie Oliver (2013)
Bacon you ask? But that thing is everywhere!
I get you, that was exactly what has been on my mind since forever, until I kept running into foreigners considering me crazy for eating my bacon raw.
But why? I thought everyone eats their bacon raw!
It wasn't until later that I realized that overwhelming majority of mass produced bacon is not actually "smoked" and thus is not safe to eat without further preparation.
Apparently, most of the bacon in my country is locally produced smoked bacon that most lovers of sad rubbery bacon worldwide don't get much experience of, which explains the dissonance.
So what is your favorite kind of meat fellow meat eaters?
Do you like meat from a particular animal? Or a certain meat product?
Or are you perhaps one of the dreaded veggiesauruses?
- Poultry (chicken, turkey duck)
- Fish and Seafood
- Game (deer, rabbit)
- I'm a veggiesaurus

Not to sound too snobby, but alligator meat is at the top of my list. It's sinfully delicious.
After that, I like seafood. It's the one category from which I like anything--from fish to prawns to octopus. There's virtually no type of seafood that I dislike.
After that, I'm not really a fan of any meat. Lamb and rabbit are alright, but the standards--pork, beef, and chicken--are not to my taste (the sole exception being bacon strips... although, seafood still takes precedence over those).
