She was looking at a couple different places for this. Most of the "clubs" offer bacon from different places, they don't make their own. In her research Broadbent kept getting great reviews and everything else the club offered was second. She decided to go to the source instead of messing around with it.

Yes, Broadbent is very good but, then, our area is known for its fine pork products. I grew up and went to school with a boy whose family, Partin, had a wonderful country sausage company. Loved Partin's sausage. They closed a couple of years ago. Another competing company, Grogan's, took Partin's over and we can still buy Partin's products. Although, I think Grogan's altered the seasoning. It's still good, but not as good as the original.

Another wonderful source for country ham products is a place called Harper's in Clinton, KY. They've been around since Noah and have fantastic country hams, etc. They've won a gazillion competitions and do an incredible mail order business.

If you're ever in our area in September, you HAVE to enjoy the Barbecue on the River in Paducah. The air smells so good, you just want to jump up and eat it. The event is awesome.

Bacon was one of the foods on my Hit List after my bypasses, up to now. I've recently started eating it again in very strict moderation.

I don't want to get back into the eating habits that caused the problem initially. I was a grease guzzler for most of my life. I had the misconception that I was immune from heart disease. My body taught me differently.

The left over bacon from last night (yeah, it surprised me too) is now on grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches with tomato. Umm.. YUM!



Nikki,

I think I might keep Kathleen around a bit longer. She is pretty ok.

Should I PM you my snail addy, PLEASE!!!! You can ship the excess bacon to me in MN in February. I'll deal with getting it across the border....or maybe I could just convince Kathleen to come and live in Canada?

There is a huge difference between leftover bacon and excess bacon.
