We’ve weathered sirloin squalls and Tartare trichinosis, digit-endangering cleavers and briskets that cause pleasure comas in two out of three eaters. It’s been one hell of a Month of Beef, and it’s time to honor you, the people who made it happen. We received a massive amount of submissions for our Great Map of Beef — giving a chance at shelter and a full stomach to the lost and beef-less — and our Show Us Your Beef campaign — which made us all yearn for what you had close at hand. In short: We called, and you answered.
Now, we get to reward the winners. Using a combination of intense objective selection and raw luck, we selected five Show Us Your Beef contributors to win $100 in Pat La Frieda steaks and two Map of Beef pin-pointers to receive Laguiole Steak Knife sets. Drumroll, please…
