    Going thru the meat dep't a few days ago, they had this pork.... It was dark, like beef..... I had to grab 3 cry-vac pkgs.....

    $1.49 ain't bad either....

    Don't that look good... Our store has not had pork, that good looking, in forever.... It must have been a mistake....

    Destined for some other store me thinks......

    So,.... other than freeze it, the process began with 9#'s chunked and put in the cure/sugar for a week or so... 

    I think bacon will be on the menu... Full sized chunks will not slice well on my small slicer...

    [​IMG]

    Then there is our favorite, "go to the freezer for sandwiches"... pulled pork....   21#'s.......

    [​IMG]

    Bride cooks at 225F for 18 hours.... I cannot argue with her on how to cook pulled pork..... That would be stupid.....

    PP bagged for later.....   Lisa B's bags are great.....

    [​IMG]

    Then there was the Country breakfast sausage... 17#'s....

    [​IMG]

    And the Andouille for Brides killer Jambalaya......  12#'s.....

           ....... the new tube worked perfect... 

    .... It wasn't the right tube for this job, but I had to try it before making collagen beef sticks and bkfst sausage.....

    [​IMG]

    Out of the overnight refer and ready to vac....  they are ugly looking...... they taste good....

    [​IMG]

    Andouille patty with the trimmings.... Eggs got too hard.... Oh well....  S++t  happens.....

    [​IMG]

    That was a busy day....  Using fresh pork in place of frozen.... a good thing.....  Having the freezer filling up with

    home made eats..... priceless.....

    Thanks for looking.....  Dave

  5. Great buy on the pork and it's really nice looking. Lots of fun/work getting all that pork done but it all looks great! Now I'm headed back to the supermarket for the $1.49 lb butts they have on sale! It's all your fault!
