How To Make Your Own Butter

Today, I will show you how to make one of my all-time favorite ingredients: butter!

I use butter in nearly every single meal I make, and I love knowing that the butter in the dish was something I made with my own hands. It couldn’t be easier to make, and gives you a great forearm pump to boot.

All you need is a large Mason jar and 16oz of heavy whipping cream.

How To Render Your Own Beef Tallow

I have always found something special about being able to figure out how to make my own ingredients, instead of just my own meals. It’s easy to make cookies, or pies, or dressings, but how about making the ingredients that go into the recipes themselves?

Pump Dragon Is Now Available

Not everyone wants to chase big singles all the time, and that is perfectly fine. Sometimes we need a break from the 1RM chase, to give a little more focus on size, and general feel-good sessions. I have been in that mental state for a few months now, and because of this, I have decided to write another eight-week training manual designed around this approach.

This article is sponsored by Johnsonville. 

Johnsonville is making my sausage dreams come true. No, they’re not giving me another dachshund (though I would definitely accept a doxie puppy as payment). Instead, we’re partnering up to celebrate Bratsgiving: the hot doggiest, most delicious day of the Summer.

While the actual Bratsgiving, or National Bratwurst Day, is August 16, Johnsonville is getting the party started early by kicking off the celebration in Seattle on July 29 at the Seattle Seafair.
