Re: Two year old Esicar bacon?

Hey, Larry, I love good bacon, but unfortunately, this stuff had kicked over by the time I tried to cook it. You can ask Cynthia, it was really a nasty experience. Next time, I won't go so long before cooking it up, and will cook and enjoy it as soon as I get back home! Looks like Esicar's went out ...

Re: Two year old Esicar bacon?

Well......... Ty and Larry, looks like you Gents dodged a bullet with this one. I just sliced up the Esicar's bacon, and noticed a rather foul smell coming from it. Thought it might have been the smoking flavors that they had used to cure the bacon. Anyway, I got 4 nice slices out of it, and put the...

Re: Two year old Esicar bacon?

I can't imagine anything would be wrong if it has been in the freezer and fridge the whole time. Slice off a piece and give it a test. Hey, Ty, I was thinking the same thing. Well, in for a penny, in for a pound. If you don't ever hear from me again, you'll know what happened to me!! I'll let you k...

Two year old Esicar bacon?

Howdy, All, A few years ago, our woods walk team at the ALRA National Gathering came in 3rd place, and as such, each of us got a small package of Esicar's Dry Cured Smoked Bacon for our prizes. I put mine in the freezer after getting home, and forgot about it. Then, a few months ago, I "found" that ...

Re: 2014 Postal Match

Howdy, Rob, Thank you, as always, for keeping this match alive and well. I did not get to participate last year, due to eye operations, and my inability to see well enough to shoot. But, this year, I'm hoping to shoot right-handed, and look forward to seeing how that works for me. My left eye, which...
