    Chuck, What can you sell me Jowl's for? I'll come up and buy a case. While were at it, can I get some Caul from you too? That has been very difficult to find.

    One thing you can give and still your word.

Although I dig the idea!
    If that were true every drug company would be trying to find a way of using pork fat for cholesterol meds.
    I'm not sure I buy into the notion that this is only true with pigs. Free range Venison is very lean on saturated fat. If you start penning up Moose, Deer, Elk, Caribou etc and plump them up by force feeding or altered diets I strongly suspect that they (or any animal) would produce a much higher level of saturated fat. Isn't this the idea with with corn fed beef?
    There's a lot of reasons not to like CAFO pork but we all need to remember that those commercial farms produce pork bi-products necessary for vaccinations, meds etc. As well as provide lower cost protein. Not every one can afford free range Heritage breeds. Every one likes to bag on CAFO farming, Monsanto etc (myself included) but the simple truth is that with out them food costs would be obscene for all but the wealthy.


    Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
