Too dangerous for my little 3 year old.
Nice job Bear. Your posts are always a big hit and very user friendly.

Thanks T & B, and Kurt !!
I agree about the bones, for a couple reasons:
One is that if a piece has more bone than another piece, it seems to get done quicker & can dry out.
The other is the bones are sharp. I once bit into a piece & a hidden sharp bone cut my gum, right next to my teeth. Didn't feel good at all !!
I like a little excess fat on mine too!!
