Hello Everyone!

This week, while it cools down a little bit, we have some roasts on sale.  We have our USDA Prime
 Boneless Chuck Roasts and Boneless Pork Loin Roasts.  We also have Boneless Pork Chops, Smoked Pork Chops, and Jacobs own Ring Liver Sausage...YUM!  Our Brats of the Week this week are: Jacobs own Jalapeno-Cheddar and Chili Cheese Brats.  We also have Fresh Chorizo, which has been a HUGE seller this year.  Great in Scrambled Eggs, or any spanish dishes.  One item that has always been a main-stay here at Jacobs Meat Market has been our Home-cured Home-smoked Bacon.  We have become famous for our Bacon because we continue to do it the old-fashioned way.  We take a Fresh Pork Belly, and dry-cure it (meaning we don't inject it with the brine to make it puff up, then shrink when you cook it), then we let it sit for 3-4 days and smoke it for another 3-4 days.  The most popular question that people ask about the Bacon is, "Does it have Nitrates?"  Although I would love to say it doesn't, it does have minimal amounts of Nitrates.  It has .01% Sodium Nitrite, so it's minimal, but it's technically there.  We use the curing salt so that the bacon doesn't spoil in the smokehouse...otherwise it would spoil because it's in there for so long. The second-most popular question is, "Does it have Sugar?"  It does have traces of sugar...again, in our curing salt mixture, as well as the brown sugar that we cure it with.  I'm in the process of coming up with a sugar-free bacon that still has great taste!  I hope this clears up some questions about our Bacon  :).

After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the young blonde
declared, “Well, then, maybe I’ll just go out and catch my own alligator and get a pair of
alligator shoes for free!”
The shopkeeper replied with a sly smile, “Well, little lady. Why don’t you go on, and give it a try?”
The blonde headed off to the swamp, determined to catch an alligator.  Later that day as the shopkeeper was driving home, he spotted the same young woman standing knee-deep in the murky swamp water, shotgun in hand.
As he brought his car to a stop, he saw a huge 9’ alligator swimming rapidly toward her.  With lightening reflexes, the blonde took aim, shot the creature and hauled it up onto the slippery bank.  Nearby were 7 more dead alligators all lying belly up.  The shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent amazement as the blonde struggled mightily and barely managed to flip the alligator onto its back.
Then rolling her eyes heavenward, she screamed in frustration…….“THIS ONE’S BAREFOOT, TOO!”
