The December issue of Esquire has a gift guide for the person who plans on giving meat to friends and family this Christmas.
The first choice is an obvious one, and a familiar one to fans of The Late Show With David Letterman: Lobel's, in New York City. The mag calls it "the best steak in America," and I bet there are some places in the South that would want to argue that point. They also list the Best Ham In America, The Best Sausage, The Best Barbecue, and even the Best Wine to go along with your meat gifts.
Warning: You probably shouldn't wrap the meat early and put it under the tree until Christmas. Not only will that make for a very funky Christmas morning, your dog will probably ravage the gifts to find out what the hell that smell is. And don't put any meat in the stockings either. That's just wrong.
