Yeah but you wash your hands and that meat will be cooked to temp right? And your knives and cutting board have been cleaned beforehand?

Can't tell if serious
I have seen Jason's kitchen. I've watched him prepare food in it. I have eaten food he's prepared.
I dare say your average Pad Thai vendor on the streets of Bangkok adheres to higher standards of sanitation.
But did you die? More importantly, did it taste good?
True story: a barbeque place in a nearby town had a history of poor grades and occasional shut-downs by the health department. I ate there every chance I got. While I'm generally in agreement with the idea that food sanitation is important (In my kitchen, I treat raw chicken like HAZAMAT), I make exceptions for barbeque, street food, and possibly hamburger stands.

Comparing a private kitchen to a food cart or restaurant makes no sense. It's like comparing a meatpacking plant and a fishing boat. The private kitchen and boat have looser standards because they have vastly less food and fewer customers.

There are certain types of food where you know that the best joints are the ones that look like they can give you salmonella just from driving past. Barbecue being one of the major types. Every time we drive past a particularly dodgy looking barbecue joint, David and I will talk about how if you ate there you'd either die or have the best meal of your life.

And it's Tillamook, which is, objectively speaking, the best cheese there is. It's the only thing Oregonians produce that doesn't have a superior counterpart from Washington.

Co-sign. It’s okay but there are 20 or more mainstream cheeses in front of it.

So, there's a program called Bullzip.

What does it do? Well, not what every program with "zip" in its name for the last 35+ years does.

(It generates PDFs. It basically gives a Windows box the same "print to PDF" function Macs have.)

Cheddar is the best broadly available cheese in the U.S. for use on stuff and in sandwiches. If the goal is to eat cheese, there are far better cheeses.

Cheddar, in the giant generic blocks of the grocery store brand, is merely adequate-good. When done very well, I think it can be as excellent as any other excellent cheese.

Monterrey jack though, that's just the worst, right? Either I've never had the good stuff or I can't figure out why it exists.

So high moisture melty cheeses have to be segmented from other discussions of cheese quality. They are primarily melty. I’d argue jack does the thing better than most because chilies help the meh.

There are a couple of brands of bulk grocery jack that are notably awful though.

Good Cheddar is good cheese. Very little if any Cheddar available at a chain grocery is good Cheddar.

I guess not? It seems to be a popular free solution in the niche.

Don't know why this program exists, then.
