This year I saved a ton of cash by doing my own cold smoked cheese, sea salt and Buck Board Bacon. These are all things I will be serving or giving out on turkey day. Instead of paying $3.99(and that's at a discount store) for 3.5 oz of smoked sea salt that I'm giving away... I paid $1.58 lb and made 2 lbs of it to give to family and friends at gatherings tomorrow. and it's amazing sprinkled over buttered... Instead of paying between $5.19 and $6.99 per 8 oz(not even a lb) of smoked cheese that I'm serving as appetizers... I bought 5lb blocks of cheddar and mozzarella for $14.98 per block and made... And of course I have to bring everyone a baggy of BBB that I've been storing up recently. Bacon itself is pretty pricy these days but a 12 oz(again not even a lb) package of bucky at the local grocer is $6.19. and I'm not sure it's really smoked.........but these were and I'll be pulling over 13 lbs out of the freezer tomorrow to give away. Nothing beats a leftover turkey and bucky sammie the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks to this I'm gonna be the shining star at tomorrows gatherings. Plus I can say I did it myself and I know I saved a few $$$$ while I was at it. I have no connection to Tjohnson or his company. I'm just a satisfied user of a product he happened to design.
