|The following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content.|
The meat mine (referred to as meat in-game) is a mine that was cut from the final version of the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues. A similar concept would later be implemented in Fallout 76 with Explosive bait.
It is an exact replica of a frag mine, simply with the appearance of a piece of steak. Nearly completed, the reasons for the weapon's removal are unknown. AI package, NVDLC03X8GabeMeatFindPackage, for Gabe exists in the files which would have made him approach any meat mines placed near him, meaning that the meat mine was created to be an easy way of beating Gabe in battle during the quest A Brain's Best Friend.
