Makin' Bacon

Makin' Bacon

55 lbs odd of freshly smoked ham and bacon...mmmmm.

Abe started a fire in the smoker about 8.30 or 9 yesterday morning and the final ham came in at 8pm.

Still, a day's work (especially as it was Abe, not me, that did it all!) is a very small price to pay for the wonderful meat we got out of it. In total, there was about 43 lbs of ham (my favorite) and 12 lbs of bacon, all bagged up in portions that should last a week or two.

The whole house smelled of bacon for most of the afternoon and night. Does anyone think there would be any money in inventing a bacon scented candle?
