I could, but I use whole logs in my cooker. It is a big beast

Interesting. In the US our Weights & Measures folks are tougher -- much less subtle. The seller has to specifically list the amount of water ("flavor enhancement solution") that is added. IIRC if the seller jazzes a ham over 25% they have to call it "artificial ham."

I used to be involved in that world and remember a conference where the Michigan W&M folks showed a video where they were examining "wet tare." This is the weight of the liquid you have paid for but which goes down the drain when the sealed bag is opened. Quite eye-opening, actually. The vendors are always trying to game the W&M regulations.

That’s great!

A meat market near DF’s farm sells heritage pork raised by area farmers, Berkshire, and it is terrific.

I’ve been very happy with the HEB “natural pork” so I hadn’t tried to order heritage pork from d’Artagnan yet. But I’ve ordered other things.

OK - smoked the baby back ribs today. Plus an eggplant for baba ganosh.

Ribs are resting for 30 mins wrapped in butcher paper.

ETA: oh yeah!

I just thought you have bigger pigs in Texas than we have in Georgia.

First thing I asked the DW this am, what do you want to grill this weekend?

Normally, I smoke Boston Butt, sausages, an occasional chicken or turkey. Have recently begun making pastrami. It has been great. Skipro33 had some interesting ideas. I use the smoker to convert cheap meats into great tasting dinners. Had experimented with more expensive cuts of meat but I found that I liked things like salmon or filet mignon cooked in the kitchen. I can do Boston Butts for 97 cents a pound all day.

HEB is selling their own brand of grass fed (& grass finished) beef. Picked up a couple of great looking ribeye steaks yesterday. Grilled them today. Excellent!!!!

Sorry - fast cooking so forgot to take pics.
