Sorry, just had to share my new toy- Got the OK from Supreme Command to purchase a slicer, however, she forgot o give me a budget. Was going to get one from Cabelas, then I thought, buy the one you want! So off to the restaurant supply house. Boy, that place is trouble...... Got a Berkel 9", built like a tank. Even comes with a built-in sharpener. Oh, and Mama said if I cook, she'll clean..... she may regret that!! Happy smoking everyone!
