Everyday Chef | Virginia Beach man's jerky is to dry for

WHEN HIS CUT goes on sale, Tom Emory is the man you don't want to be standing behind at the meat counter.
Yup, he's that guy, the one who swoops in early to swipe up every last ounce of London broil. On Emory's best forays, he scores 20 pounds of the stuff. Then, back in his Virginia Beach kitchen, he turns it into 10.

Taste Test | The best lasagna in Hampton Roads
