Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Meat Lover

What? Not done with your holiday shopping? Yeah, neither are we. But we've been making lists -- and checking them twice -- and we've got some suggestions for the nice people on your list. Today, Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Meat Lover.

His or her deep-seated passion for all things carnivore has marinated over the years, seasoned with cookouts, barbecues, and the impulse purchase of a meat smoker. For the protein partisan in your life, we've put together a list of savory gifts that any serious meat-lover would enjoy.
