.......Walter....... You are 100% correct........Yesterday (Sept 4th) was "INTERNATIONAL BACON DAY"!! Now the "sixty four dollar" question is:
"Did tiberius have any Bacon yesterday"...........if not, he is banned from the 'porch' for 3 days AND has to delete all his previous posts regarding BACON.

We all will be banking on his honesty to let us know if he did have some bacon yesterday...............................

The other one is the Blackfoot River, I think. I like rivers...
Dang, I KNEW I recognized that name but I couldn't place it! It's your name on here!

Oh, I will go back there for sure! We won't go to parent weekend this year, (last half of October), but we will next.....

They have small storage areas in the bottoms of some of the dorms......we are going to have her store a lot of her stuff there over the summer......better than hauling it home.......

They turn their golf course into a x-country area during the winter....heck, I wish I WAS a student there! That is one thing that I always wanted to try but never got around to it....

Glad you enjoyed your trip, now do something good for your self and have a little cry now and then.
She went home with her room mate over the weekend.....and the room mate is from Polson......I know the girl is familiar with the road, but I immediately stiffened up and had my husband send her a text to tell her to text us when she got there.......she did. Once a mom, always a mom.

Well I didn't know it was national bacon day dammit. I did have some ponhaus and eggs though.

I picked up a young turkey yesterday and I plan on stuffing it with bread and BACON pieces. That will surely do well on the rottiserie

I'm sitting in the garage looking at a burn pile I have all set to go. Perfect day to burn but dang if the wind doesn't spoil it. I'd do some bush hogin but I broke the shear pin yesterday on a stump. Need a slip clutch ( or a bucket of shear pins ).

I did cook a front pork shoulder on the grill yesterday. Turned out pretty good. I say that only because the kids that spent the night devasted it

Had the shoulder scored and rubbed with dry seasonings and soaked in lager overnight. Sure did smell good while I was working in the yard.

Sneakers had Ham, does that count for anything?

We got back from Iowa around 5:00pm, what a wonderful yet very exhausting trip this was and I will be glad to move back to Iowa as soon as we can. I think we have agreed on a city to live in and we have lived there before for about one year. Not much there as far as anything being there but they have good water unlike some of the areas in Iowa so I am all for good water without a lot of fuss. Also about a 15 mile drive into Iowa City, or West Liberty, or Kalona, a wee bit longer to drive to friends home in Ainsworth but well worth the drive.

All stitches came out great, both cheek and leg look great and itch like crazy. I am about to become a tree hugger just so I can feel the bark as it scratches the big itches....LOL

The pig was just falling off the bone. Very juicy, outstanding pig.

I'm not sure if the pictures will post in order but here's how to roast a pig.

Cut up about 4 cord of wood. At least 3 cord of that should be hard wood.

Start fire about 8 hours before you'll put the pig in. Make sure there are about 3 ft of red coals.

Wrap the pig in tin foil and put it in the barrel on the rack. Close the barrel.

Lift the barrel onto the coals and cover it up. Only need about 1 ft of dirt over the barrel.

Leave it there for 16 hours, making sure you cover any steam leaks. Steam will work it's way to the surface, just throw a couple shovels of dirt on it. If steam is allowed to escape, it means that oxygen is getting in and the fat will start on fire. So keep leaks covered.

We put the pig in at 9pm. We took the pig out at 1pm on Sunday.

We threw the pig on a big table and with gloves on (pig was hot) just pulled the pork apart. We had checked to make sure it was done when we unwrapped the tin foil. Thermometer stuck in the shoulder said 175 degrees. The rump was at about 180.

Once it's out and pulled apart, you can add bar-b-q sauce and spices. To add spices before you put it in won't work. A pig, with hide on will bleed fat during cooking and wash all the spice off.

We put a 150 lb pig in. The pig had been gutted and blanched (scalded and scraped).

The barrel we used is made from an old boiler tank. 36 inches across with a rack inside. The rack is removable so when we lifted the pig out, we used bale hooks. Barrel is about 1/4 inch steel.

The last picture was inside the shop while everybody was chowing down. A couple guys set up a beer pong table. It's hard to see but it's Lori's weiner dog drinking all the beer out of the first three beer cups. lol

Here's the pics.

That's a lot of wood.

In the suburbs adjacent to New York City, that much wood would cost more than $1,000, may be more than $1,500.

Here, that cost me and one other guy about 2 tanks of chainsaw gas and 10 man hours apiece.

Oh, and one tank of gas in the splitter.

I'm guessing that no blisters were involved.
