Today is gonna be brisket day. The kid got paid, and I told her I’d cook her a brisket if she bought it
She ended up with a market trimmed brisket (whole, but deckle removed) fro $35.
It’s in the oven now in a brown ‘n bag at 225°. About 8 hours oughta do it easily. I halved it, and put on some dry rub, and seared it in the 12″ cast iron for about 2 minutes per side, then into the bag with some bbq sauce smeared on top. Plus, I made a batch of my homemade bbq sauce for eating.
The wife was ecstatic to see the brackets for her hanging baskets up. She spent the afternoon building her baskets. She’s not finished yet.
I see that Ted Cruz bailed and jumped ship to support the media cartel bill..I guess he had something on Swillary too.
$4.77 per pound; unbelievable. It wasn’t that long ago when a pound of butter was $2.50.
I suggest you stock up and drop a few pounds in the freezer.

The wife picked up a 10lb roll of ground beef at the local grocer at $3.65/lb. She didn’t get the extra buck a pound off, but it’s still cheaper than the bigger grocery store. The kid also picked up three more bags of frozen corn kernels for me. More canning soon, after I Food Saver the ground beef.

Back to the Food Saver…I was assured by Food Saver themselves, that their bags were the BEST! Hands down! No question about it!….lies…more lies…
My conclusion is that the Food Saver brand bags are well, pretty much next to worthless, even though they cost more than the so-called generic rolls.
I packaged 7 bags of ground beef this morning, and as I watched the unit suck the air out of the bags of ground beef, when the vacuum process stopped, I saw the air seep back inside, thus negating the whole process for that bag. This happened twice, and had to cut them open and repackage them in a generic bag, which worked fine.
Certainly, the Food Saver has an option for “moist” seal, which only extends the time period in case some moisture (in this case, meat juices) get sucked towards the edge of the vacuum side of the bag, allowing more time for the unit to heat seal the edge.
I know not from where the leak happens, as it doesn’t happen every time it’s used…I have purchased my Food Saver rolls from Ebay, and they work fine; at least better than the more costly Food Saver brand rolls. There.
So, 7 packages of ground beef ranging in weight from 1 lb to 1 lb 14 oz. I am surprised at how quickly we go through the ground beef. Perhaps we should get another, and put the packages in the bunkhouse freezer. I could always can them too. Ground beef; so very versatile.
I still have a 5 lb bag of flour that needs to be Food Savered too, and a box of cake mix. Both have been in the deep freeze since Tuesday. However, will have to get some more larger Food Saver bags for the flour.
It’s always something.
