Bighorner steaks are an effective replacement for alcohol and Buffout as a Strength enhancing item, with no risk of addiction. Bighorner steak weighs .80, so it is 20% lighter than a bottle of alcohol (Buffout is weightless), and it also has a gradual health recovery effect, which both alcohol and Buffout lack. At higher levels of Survival (100 of Survival skill) the Strength boost increases to +3.
