    and I found exactly what I what I was looking for today, 4.5 miles from my house.

    It’s a Berkel 827A-plus. Exactly the slicer I’d hope to find. I probably overpaid a hair, but it’s a really nice one.

    Now I can slice my bacon without modifying my slicer to the point of it being dangerous!

    Just wanted to share.

    Thats great. I found a Hobart bout 20 miles form me that they say works great on CL. 200 bucks but I already have one an dont need another.

    Actually I might see if they still have it. Have a buddy that wants one.

    They just don’t get that low around here. That’s a great price!

    I was a bit shocked. There was one in mobile alabama that I almost bought but it was a 10”.

    Got any recommendations for a good entry level slicer?

    I am going to pick up a couple bellies this weekend(hopefully) and figured if I am going to start doing bacon going to need a slicer. They are anywhere from $50 to $600 on amazon. Not seeing much on craigslist in this area.

    The one I was using was a waring pro. It retails around $75. It’s does the trick, but I am slicing bacon constantly nowadays, as we’ve been selling it faster than we can make it. I almost took my thumb off the last go round so an upgrade was imminent.

    If you were closer, I would give you my waring. I keep it clean and it’s still in the box.
