Thanks for the Kudo's Rich. You are very welcome.
Squeezy I made the offer a while back in a thread where Smokie Okie was looking for pancetta.
I have a family member that works for Ferucci Foods. Makers/sellers of fine meat products. This person happens to be a manager so they are able to get the meat when they bust open boxes for inspection. Since open boxes can't be sold they give it to my family member. They give it to me since they work around the meat they dont want it.
I give the meat away to any takers. I only keep a little. The offer is still open. PM me if you are interested. You only pay postage. The meat is free!
Debi the Procuitto is cured in a way that it would take for every for it to go bad. Those hams hung in an unrefrigerated room for weeks before they were ever packed to go to the stores. The pancetta is hit and miss. If it is cold weather it can be chanced. That I why I only sent one pack to Rich to try.
Just like summersausge and pepperonni sticks that don't require refrig until opened or sliced I guess.
Ok, Here is a list of stuff I get. This is from time to time and not all the time. Sometimes I get alot at once and then none for a while.
Pepperonni sandwich slices
Multiple types of Salami sandwich slices
" " Salami Sticks
Pancetta Logs 5lbs
I have gotten alot of stuff that I had no idea what it was cause I had never heard of it.
