            Will do. 10:00 this morning is my inspection!!

          Show us “where’s the beef”. Let er roll! 👍 🕶


            Best wishes for a prosperous future. I buy most of my meat from local farmers and they all tell me about their processors closing and having having to transport their animals farther away and increasing their stress. A stressed animal is not a tasty animal. So you're definitely filling a need.

                  Thanks . I has been a battle but a enjoyable one.

                Looking good Backroadmeats . Will you sell retail cuts of meat as well as do custom butching?

                  No I can't sell any retail just do custom processing.. retail is a whole other level of inspection.

                Huh it has been a year already!! We processed over 80,000 lbs of beef and hogs this year along with 132 deer and over 10,000 lbs of deer sausage!! The schedule is filling up fast for next year. Couldn't have asked for a better first year. A lot of it is due to the help I have found,. We processed 1894 lbs of steers in 6 hours today .. tomorrow we will grind and stuff the burger.. unreal..

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
