There's a fairly standard lunch routine here at Observer headquarters: meander around staffers offices and cubicle like brain-hungry zombies until a restaurant decision is made. Often, it's tacos.

Even more frequent: the consumption of meat (Sorry Anna). Hell, it's usually around lunchtime when our hunger overrides our visual accuity and Scott Reitz turns into a steaming turkey leg instead of human moaning "what's fooorr lunch."

Anyway, in honor of our year of eating meats--we have a slide show for you: the best meat photos of 2011. We've even crowned a winner of the Best Meat Photo of 2011 after the jump (seriously, it's a meatacular one). Check out the full slide show over in the section for slide shows, and after the jump check out our favorite shot of the year.

The sampler platter at Lockhart, we salute you.
