Tied it up a bit with a couple of loops. It is starting to pull right off of the hook already.

gorgeous hunk of beast flesh, roch. any idea how much a piece like that would retail for?

i feel like we have two teams now, a pork team vs. a beef team. or, more to the point, team pacanis vs. team roch--u.s.a. vs. canada. to confuse matters even more, pacanis is currently making canadian bacon. this will be an interesting match to follow....:)

That costs about 90 dollars. Not sure exactly becuase they come in boxes of three. Here are a few more shots. Some very dark colors forming on the fat cap.

Yeah. I guess so. Quite a reflection on humankind, eh? I will hold off on the photos for a few days so we can really tell the difference. It is changing quite a bit from day to day, though. I am afraid of what it is going to look like in another month.

I never got it weighed because the scale is upstairs. Most of those come in anywhere between 12 to 15 lbs.

Yup. Took it out and gave it a good wipe down with paper towel...

I just had a meeting with a rep from a meat manufacturer. He is also a chef. He says that the piece of meat could lose up to 50% of its weight.
