Meat is a friendly glowing one that can be found in The Chop Shop in 2277.


When he's not operating on ghouls with a variety of odd ailments, Doctor Barrows spends his time learning the exact medical reasoning for feral ghouls "turning" into glowing ones. For this, ex-patients who succumbed to massive amounts of radiation are placed inside an inaccessible containment chamber adjacent to Barrow's Chop Shop surgery. "Meat" is one of these subjects.[1]

According to the Chop Shop's records, Meat likes chewing on his arm. Meat is in the Chop Shop for observational purposes, along with another glowing one named Ethyl.
