Spanish term or phrase: muy hecha
I have put this seperately for the sake of glossary entries, but it is the same question as "heavy", really.

This is another entry for an employee of an ad agency for their web page (it's a roll-over quip about the person - all of these are witty little blurbs). Heavy is italicised in the original, and I don't get the play on words here.

1 - What is a heavy in Spanish, for me it would be a biker, a goon/thug, or a deep thinker.

2 - I understand the "muy hecha" meat reference, just not how it applies to personality.

3 - How does the one relate to the other?

Any stabs at the whole phrase "Heavy por fuera, tierno por dentro, a pesar de cómo le gusta la carne, muy hecha" are welcome. TIA! :)

Here is the entire entry:

"Bob, un volcán siempre a punto de explotar. Heavy por fuera, tierno por dentro, a pesar de cómo le gusta la carne, muy hecha. No hay archivo que se le resista."

Notes to answerer
Asker: I get the feeling you didn't read my explanation. :) "Well done" wouldn't really work out as a personality trait so far as I can see.
