I do 1 when doing my beans, let 'em cook into the sawce. My bean bacon is usually over 1/4" thick, close to side pork.


4 goes on the BLT, but I can eat burnt bacon all day as long as it isn't processed store-bought. 


As for #6, only one truth applies: You can throw undercooked bacon back into the pan, but you cannot un-overcook bacon.....

Heh, I spent my mortal life as a paint contractor, I may not know food grade, but I know 5 gallon bucuts.

I ask about a kit because it'd be nice having the parts without hunting them down one by one. I'm 15 miles from town and 50 from anything resembling a "brew store".

I appreciate the input, be careful what you offer....

Any sign of roots yet?  Just wondering.....
On another note, we recently had some repairs to some hardscaping and additions to the landscape in our front yard.  The landscaper recommended "Milorganite" as an excellent slow release fertilizer, in addition to being a pretty good deer deterrent, saying they use it in their nursery and, in addition to a feeding station just outside the nursery, is enough to keep the deer from destroying their inventory.  He left me a big bag of the stuff, along with 30 small cotton bags filled with it to hang and place in the new plantings.
Since it's from your general neck of the woods, I was wondering if you'd heard of it and/or used it in your garden as fertilizer or deer repellent.

No and no. I did have a damping off incident with one cutting, but otherwise nothing has changed, no growth, no wilt, and no rooting. I read that this can go on for months.

Milorganite, never heard of it, but will now seek it out, thanks!
