I made a burger from each mound of macerated muscle to see which had the best flavor. Iowa Meat Farms came in first, with outstanding flavor that exploded right out of the gate. Henry’s was a close second, with plenty of juicy, meaty flavor. Vons and Ralph’s were juicy, but needed a few chews to extract the taste. The tube hamburger was not flavorless as I had expected; it just had more of a fatty taste than a meaty one. Iowa Meat Farms is your best bet for flavor and value. Its current sale price of $1.49/lb is $.90 to $1.50 less than the grocery stores’ regular prices.
