A few observations - Pic heavy

13 posts in this topic

1st: Always check the cooking forum frequently, this seems to be the catch all for anything related to this page.

2nd: When you see bets that involve smoked/cured meats from members, enter as you never know when you may get lucky (I did on the final score of the Minn – Hawks game and won!)

3rd: When you win, the creators of the contest rapidly connect with your using HSO’s PM service which was nice.

4th: When the first box gets delivered in a very short period of time, sealed with duct tape and the return address just says “Boar” have your wife open it.  I feel I am more bombable than she is.

4.5: Who is this BOAR guy anyway, don’t you have to be a socialite or famous to just have a single name you like Cher or Madonna?

5th: The two boxes I have received, included a nice little note.  Read those so you know what you are getting into.

6th: After you filter through all the bacon, summer sausage, beef jerky and Canadian bacon there is still one item left neatly wrapped in shop towels that I am leery of opening.  I immediately reverted back to the 4th step which is have the wife open it, low and behold 2 hunks of smoked cheese one smoked apple-wood American and the other gouda.

7th: Try to explain who these people are that are sending us these treats to a 9-6-4 year old, their first response was “Dad, you tell us all the time not to make friends on the internet”

8th: Explain to children, Dad isn’t always right.

9th: Get mom all mad right before dinner as we ate the summer sausage, jerky and a big hunk of cheese, by the time dinner was done all 4 of us said we are not hungry!

10th: Drool for this weekend as I am cooking up the traditional bacon and Canadian bacon Sat morning before one of their big swim meets. 

 

In all honestly, wow was it good and completely appreciated.  I will be checking the archives for these recipes and tricks, because I can only hope they turn out as good when I try to make these.  As for those of you who are against using backstraps for jerky, you need to rethink your position.  Thank you again, LoveBigBlueGills , Boar, and Reinhard1

I'm glad that everything was a hit with your family (despite getting the missus a bit perturbed about ruining your appetites;)).

The recipes are pretty simple for the stuff I sent, and if you have any questions, just ask and somebody will help you out.

Thank you for putting all of the pictures in your post, they are great to see, especially your kids enjoying everything. The smiles say it all, and made my day!!!

That was quite a haul.  All I got for WINNING was:

Actually, I appreciate this and will (hopefully soon) put it to good use.

Hope you find some use for it.  Otherwise regift it Donbo.   I have owned the business for about 15 years and my wife and I make everything except we hire the neighbor boy to help us with some of it.  Great kid.

Your odds were as good as his ;):D. Id be happy to do a smoke swap if youd like, not too sure if I'll "sponsor" another foosball giveaway yet.

Boar and Lindell both cashed in too the previous couple weeks. ;) But knowing how much the three of you and your families enjoyed what I sent to you, I may just figure something out for this weekend.

That's become my biggest joy of cooking/smoking anything is hearing people say how good it is.

Thank you again PK for the compliments!!!

Good to meet you, Joe!  Just another testament to the good guys that contribute to this forum.  Walked in to a bar -The infamous "Liquor Hole" in Kilkenny, MN (The pun is definitely intended, you should see the sign.) looking for a complete stranger.  Not too tough to figure out who you're looking for when someone walks in with a bag of meat, I guess. Anyway, sat there and talked like we've known each other for 20 years. I really hope we can get a bigger gathering going - I think it would be more like a family reunion than a first-time gathering.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
