    Bacon supply is running low here and thought I'd do a couple more slabs for us and friends. I paid to much for them but boy are they nice....I can't wait till I pull them out next weekend for a little smoke.

    Obligatory Teaser pic's;

    the small one, 11 pounds'

    Great looking bellies Dan!

    It's not too bad paying a little high, as long as you get nice bellies like that!

    The worst belly I ever got was also the highest price!   Not a happy Bear!

    See ya next week,

    Bear

    Dang you really get some nice looking bellies.  Most of the ones I get are pretty fatty so I have to do a lot of trimming.

    Congrats man

    Dan, Morning.

    You had to get the bellies from a local farmer. Organically grown and Heirloom variety pigs.

    Todays factory pigs don't have bellies like that.

    Am I wrong? If so, I haven't learned as much I thought from watching Sherlock Holmes ???

    Dave!!... the two bellies I got when I bought a case last month were as thick or thicker.

    They were from a commercial plant in Ga.

    Maybe this is a good time of the year to buy a case of bellies!!

    I got some slices 2 1/2 inchs wide.

    I can't really say where they came from Dave. I ordered them from a local wholesaler.
