    Hurricane Winds Are So Bad It's Almost Funny!

    Depending on how the final crop numbers come in there may some farmers willing to sell off some of their land that isn't producing money for a very good price after the harvest.

    Fir out the walls with 2*2's so you have a thicker wall and use the r-19. It will pay for the cost of lumber with the additional energy savings. Jmho

    I'm headed to South Dakota over Labor day weekend and will probably do a hunt at a game farm. It will be interesting to see the numbers as I know they don't release pen raised birds.

    Shotgun Problem

    Probably best to send it in. We have a TriStar tt-15 and its a great o/u for trap. My understanding is that the warranty doesn't transfer so you probably will be charged for service unless it's under a recall. Otherwise there is a TriStar Facebook forum with lots of people and someone might be able to diagnose or try the trapshooters forum.

    I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better. I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered.

    In the last picture, the regular bacon slices are on the top and bottom. The buckboard pieces are the two in the middle

    It's not bad but I don't think it's as good as the bacon. I think I maybe had too much of the fat trimmed off. It's more like Canadian bacon.

    The last 3 weekends were spent butchering hogs and processing. I finally made my first batch of pepperoni, tried something different and cut loins on one into rib roasts, made bacon and buckboard bacon for the first time as well. Fun but tiring

    Smart man. But obviously it didn't happen then.
