    Just Food and Drink

    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.

    I might suggest you get yourself a new spice rack. See if this one raises your spirits.

    Shredded Turkey

    Brine and inject the turkey. Pull at 155 and then foil it and cook to 180. It will be fantastic. If you can cook it at 350 to start off and crisp the skin first it will be better yet. I like either lowreys or cookies seasoning on the skin.

    Smoked eggs

    I tried once but it leaked all over after I cut through the shell.

    Are you open to adopting?

    Smoking rock bass

    Is that like a cat always landing on it's feet or the peanut butter side of a sandwich hitting the floor first.

    I wasn't talking about the coaches. They are fine. It's the front office. As a coach, how would you like it if your boss traded some of your best talent and left you dump to compete with for the rest of the season? That's a losing mentality that is created by the front office.

    2018 Twins

    That's a fair point. For me it comes down to the fact that I believe most fans don't want the team quitting on them and that is exactly what this looks like. The team is still charging the same per ticket, beer costs the same as does a t-shirt yet for the rest of the year they are telling the fans they need to settle for a lower quality product. It says the management are quitters who lack the desire to compete every game to produce the best record they can possibly get.

    2018 Twins

    Could be that I'm just jaded but even back then they all but gutted the team after winning the world series. In the 27 years how many times were they a legitimate threat to even get to the series let alone win it? Anyways, it's pretty clear the management cares more about the bottom line than actually winning. They really don't deserve the great fans and great stadium they were given.

    Why do packers fans love their coach & management?

    They have pretty much owned the Vikings during the Wilf era. As much as I hate Rodgers and Favre, the Packers have been overall better than the Vikings for the past quarter century

    Smoking rock bass

    A lot of old timers in this area would smoke carp and pickle northern Pike. A friend of mine smokes sheephead. If you put enough smoke and spices at anything it probably gets tolerable eventually.

    Smoking rock bass

    It could take some pressure off the Walleye though. But then again as far as volume goes think of the fillets you could get off a 55" muskie.

    If it works try small mouth and largemouth as well. If you can combine catching bass with cooking them on a smoker you may be starting a revolution.

    Why would anyone be surprised. This is embedded in the twins DNA. The team hasn't been relevant in nearly 3 decades and it doesn't appear that it will change in the future.

    Slow death rigs

    We used to use them with great success for years but it seems lately that drop shotting is the way to go. Use one of those blade holders that let you switch blades out because color trends change all the time and it let's you easily switch until you find what works. Speed is also something that you need to experiment with.
