Special BLTs & Cantaloupe (A la Half-Smoked)



I know it wasn’t that long ago I posted some BLTs, but I had to show you guys the ones I made with the Beautiful Tomatoes Warren “Half-Smoked” brought me, when he came to pick up two of my MES Smokers, along with one of the most Beautiful Giant Cantaloupes we’ve ever seen.
The Maters gave me slices as big as my Maiers’ Italian Bread !!
I’ll make these the same way I always do—Two slices of Toast, with Miracle Whip, Lettuce, a Big slice of Mater (if I have one), and a Bunch of Bacon.
Note: The Bacon I used was from some BBBB I made a few years ago.

I’ll do a couple BLTs like that, and then I’ll show you the Awesome Cantaloupe Warren brought us.
It was Perfect, and it lasted a couple days!!

Thank You Half-Smoked!!!

Bear

Holy cow Bear!! The sammies look great but I'd give my first born child and a pint of blood for some of those tomatoes and a cantaloupe. Hey Warren ( HalfSmoked HalfSmoked ) are you coming to TX any time soon?? :emoji_laughing: No question that Warren is a top notch guy and extremely generous. I had the honor of doing a Christmas exchange with him last year and we had a great time. I was blown away by his generosity and he continues to be a shining star among the forum members.

Thats a great sammy John. I been eating some Cantaloupes from local farmer. I really shouldn't but they where so good. When you walk up to the stand and can smell them you just got to buy one! Season over now. Sad!

Loaded BLT is the bomb. I couldn't even imagine tomatoes as big as the slice of bread. Envious. . .

Bear that all looks good! First up your buckboard in the air fryer is perfect. Lay that big thick homegrown mater on it and heck yes!! I always loved cantaloupe. Small nearby town had a melon festival complete with locally made cantaloupe ice cream. It’s amazing!

Really beautiful Tomato! The 2 plants Amanda got had a poor yield of small tomatoes. They were tasty enough but disappointing. That BBB is the way I like it. Mostly Fat with a little lean for it's flavor and texture...JJ

Those BLT's look great as always John. I'm not a tomato eater, but those you have there are making me reconsider my position, lol. We love Cantaloupes, and that's one delicious looking one. Great job.

Thank You Robert!!
I wasn't expecting anything in return when I gave my MES units away, but when Warren stopped by to get my last 2 Smokers, & gave me the Maters, Corn, Peaches, and Cantaloupe, I couldn't wait to get some BLTs going!!! The Peaches were Awesome too!!
I hope he's enjoying my MES Smokers as much as we enjoyed the Treats he brought us!!
And Thanks for the Like.
