178: The Hardcore Carnivore

Jess Pryles is the mind behind Hardcore Carnivore, countless viral cooking videos, and a lot more! On today’s interview, Jess and I chat about how American BBQ fascinated the native Australian, how to achieve the perfect steak crusts, and why grain-fed meat tastes different than grass-fed. We’ll also talk about her thoughts on hunters knowing where their food comes from, working with other online cooking personalities, and how she started Harcore Carnivore.
