:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

This has to be a first...

I just heard from a pretty reliable source that one forum member at the end of this weekend will be over

1/2 way to have coked 1/4 TON of BuckBoard Bacon so far this year.

I believe this is non commercial cooking.

Mark, Weekend Warrior. At the end of this weekend will have cooked 300 POUNDS of Buck Board Bacon.

Do you think you will hit a full 1/4 Ton by the end of the year?

Congratulations, Mark, that is a lot of BB Bacon.

There has to be some kind of reward for that accomplishment.

    Hey, you cooked some BBB!!!! Glad you liked it Vance.

    Now, have you done any Jerky yet (on the egg)?

    Oh Molly, you really need to make some BBB. Check Thirdeye's site for more information.

    Nope. We hope to try some in the next few weeks. With all the posts flying around lately about jerky I'm getting the itch.

    Another week or so and the weather will be cool enough to do some here. Heck I just saw the late summer snow storm in Colorado, too early for me. I'm getting too old for that...

    Kent
  • Haha. Thanks Kent....I think. To answer the questions, I made the mistake? :unsure: early this year of sharing a good part of my first 25lb. batch with family, friends and co-workers. Now, I'm getting orders regularly from same. I made 75lbs. to serve at Waldorf, NewEggland and Pittsburgh Eggfests. And last, but not least, my family eats plenty of it too.

    At the rate I've been making it, I should reach 400 or maybe 500 lbs. by the end of the year as I'm going to be making a bunch for Christmas gifts. ;) Mark

    that math is a little shakey.

    hahaha

    i made a batch of brat wurst in the summer, and i calculate i'm only an eighth of the way to halfway to almost there towards half a ton of bratwurst myself.

    What have we started?? :laugh: I figured most of it was for givin' away, it makes great gifts through the holidays. It's hunting season here and I make Buckboard loins for several of my buddies for their elk camp.
    Happy Trails

  • Mark,

    Thank God you guys didn't go metric when we did. That would be a lot more bacon. :laugh:

    that was meant for Mark, whose buckboard i scored at the NE eggfest.

    your (thirdeye's) gift of a box of the cure (with other stuff) was very generous too.
