Selling my homemade bacon

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

Need help, your advices and suggestions about "slicing and packaging" my homemade bacon, because I'm planning to sell it at work.:icon_razz: I have no meat slicer, slicing my bacon with an ordinary knife takes a lot of time.

Best advise I can offer is to look on Craigslist and used restaurant equipment auction sites for a commercial slicer.


I was able to find this 12" Globe slicer for $200.00.  They are out there!

  Also, do you have a vacuum packaging machine ie. foodsaver ?

I bought an older model Globe slicer from craigslist for $125!

Or sell it in slab form and let the customer slice it themselves?

My suggestion would be, if you have no good slicer available, sell it by the slab. Most folks like it that way so they can see it as a slab knowing it home grown. Then they catch on later how much easier it would be pre-sliced....LOL

 

If your bacon is pretty I say sell it as a slab. Heck wrap it up in butcher paper and tie it with a string and give 'em the whole days of old mystique.

 

My butcher says as long as I buy my bellies from her, she'll slice it and cryo pac it for me for free.

Welcome to the forum.  My advice, get a good lawyer.

Welcome to SMF!  Sounds like you need to invest in a slicer...

Risky at best unless you can get them to sign a waiver stating that they won't sue you if they get sick. And when the Health Dept. finds out what you're doing. . .
Don't mean to put a kink in your plans-but I have to agree with Tom (Mr. T).

I know a woman who was selling her bacon at work. She eventually had to quit because demand soon outstripped her ability to deliver.
