Still around

Post by DLFL » Wed Mar 20, 2013 16:48

I have been gone for some time but do check in from time to time.

Got around to making some more bacon. The butt pieces are in the smoker! The pieces I fried before smoking are great so good bacon soon to be eaten!!!!!

Dick, you ol' salty dog! We thought you had moved out of Florida, trekked north, got stuck somewhere in the Arctic Circle, then froze solid and couldn't move. We were coming to rescue you with ice picks! :shock:
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D

Seems I got caught up in raising fish. Sure has had its ups and downs. Discus are great looking domestics.

Dick your Bacon looks great. Your Discus are great looking also. I always wanted them. I had a African Cichlid tank and really enjoyed them. I thought about getting back into it especially cause I got two little kids that would really enjoy them.

A fine demonstration that you don't need an expensive system to produce a good product.

The butt bacon looks tasty. I'm looking at it here and wish I had some with a couple of the free range eggs I picked up yesterday.

Did you take it all the way to 150° IT?
