Jamie Stachowski, the maestro of meat, lifts the lid on the American melting pot to see whats cooking. Beef, Pork and Chicken, the meats Jamie calls the Usual Suspects are definitely in the mix, but these animals weren't even on the continent before Columbus discovered the New World. Like just about everyone in America today, the Usual Suspects hail from the Old world. In this 2-hour special, Jamie travels across the country to try and unravel how these meats made it to America, and why. Along the way he visits the mid-west and discovers that the roots of the Hot Dog are in Old World Sausage brought over by the millions of Eastern Europeans who made America home in the late 1800s.
