    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...

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I bought 5lb blocks of cheddar and mozzarella for $14.98 per block and made...

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Hey Bear,

    We have a chain here called Food 4 Less. I know they have some in the midwest but not sure about your area. The cheese is made by Joseph Farms, a California cheese maker and related to the Gallo wine family(not sure if you have Gallo wine out there.

    $14.98 for a 5 lb block in either cheddar or mozzarella.

    Thanks Teez.

    I'll have to look around more---Most of our stores have regular cheese that isn't smoked for about $6 or $7 per pound.

    That's why I don't smoke much cheese.  [​IMG]

    Looks great Teez!

    Yes, Todds little device is a money saver.  I checked out some Canadian Bacon at our store.  $4.29 for 6 oz.  A little over $11 per LB.  We make ours for about $2 per LB.

    Good luck and good smoking.
