    Get one.  My family uses ours a number of times a week.  They love slicing off some bacon or canadian bacon for breakfast, paper thin lunch meat for sandwiches, and I love it for slicing up 10 lbs of jerky meat in a matter of 2-3 minutes rather than an hour of hand slicing.

    I love my slicer.

    Just wondering with bellies at about 3.50/lb. what's the price of bacon?
     
  5. Wow - I thought $2.60 was bad enough  [​IMG]

    Looks awesome! I'd love to do some country ham. Did you share your process for that anywhere?
     
  10. Thanks man  [​IMG]   I don't have a thread yet for how I do my dry cured country hams. All my pics of the curing, hanging, aging etc. are on another card I lost track of when I was trying to make my pap what he wanted in his final days... I will search for it again & if I can't find it I can always start a new one soon...

    I paid 3.19 for a case(4 bellies 49#) and if not a case was 3.49. Average price  per # was 3.79 or so after smoke.[​IMG] can't find my figures for pellets and brine-pops and dry which is Sausage Makers brown sugar country ham and a little salty but great.
     
  14. Thanks man - I have more pics to put up but like I said in my wild turkey thread if I try to post pics my internet starts working slower than a slug running to the bathroom with diarrhea through a sack of cornmeal  [​IMG]

    Thank you Smoking B for answering my question.
     
  18. Due to some virus that's affected pork herds nationwide that has caused both their slaughter and not being brought to market, pork prices will, indeed, be rising all around.
