Maybe, maybe not. But you have to come to NC for the best.
LB, that looks awfully good. What is your best pork dish, assuming I was to invite myself over for dinner some day?
That is awesome. My 11 year old recently delcared herself a vegatarian – I informed her that it was fine with me, more pigs for me to eat.
My sister – years ago – worked for Swift – and in the Museum of Science and Industry with new product testing – if I am not mistaken Swift got started in those stockyards…
Perhaps true, but certainly they have been slacking in recent years. Time for some serious OT at the Chi-Town abattoir’s!
Hard to believe that the great cathedral of pork in Chicago Moo & Oink have closed their doors.
Thanks, Gerry, now I’ll have the Moo & Oink jingle going through my head for the rest of the day:
“Scream for catfish!”
“Screeeeaaammm for ribs!”
“Mooooooooo and Oink!”
Moo and Oink.
Speaking of pork, on Sunday I am attending a whole hog butchering class. Full report to come.
