You need to define the difference between a rir and a sircha then you need to settle which cases of a rir did the B"Y agree were glatt and which ones were only glatt lfi the Rema.....etc....
Everything stated above is a gross over simplification.
Kind of like asking if the docs on DDF can describe all the different approaches to curing lung cancer in a DDF post....
Ohkay. Didn't sound like the guy wanted to become a bodek based on any answers here.

Just a basic idea.


So if someone asked how to deal with lung cancer for eg, I would respond that preferably cut it out, but if it's stage 3+ then do chemo.

1) Glatt no scabs at all
2) kosher, has some scabs,but these have been skillfully analyzed and tested to ascertain that they do not render the cow traif
3) Glatt Beis Yosef, means same as number 1, just restricted to less areas of the lungs that would be problematic according to ramo.
Thanks for the only response on point so far. It differs from what I thought in the OP.

I was discussing this topic on Shabbos with several people, including some in the Glatt Kosher meat business, and none seemed sure or in agreement as to the distinction between the three standards. Then, after Shabbos I posted the topic under the general category of Just Shmooze. I have since found the article below. When I return from my current MB vacation I will also ask my LOR.

Dayan Lichtenstein from London has a basic primer on this topic but even that primer says much of the details are beyond the scope....

OP was closer to accuracy though albeit also wrong.

Glatt means smooth- I.E the lung was checked and it is smooth.

Not Glatt- means it wasnt checked, so it could be trifa.

Beit yosef is a company that sfaradim trust.
