    For our new item this week, we have the Weston Boot and Shoe Dryer, plus the optional Glove Attachment. It is a simple and easy to use boot and shoe dryer. Simply place boots or shoes on the drying posts and plug-in to quickly and easily dry any boots or shoes. The Weston Boot and Shoe Dryer is ideal for drying boots, shoes of all kinds, gloves, child or adult, rubber, cloth, plastic, or leather, safely, silently and thoroughly using the latest in natural thermal convection heat technology. As a result of using natural convection with no moving parts or forced air, there is little to no indication that the unit is actually on. The only proof is the warmth that will begin to be emitted and your dry footwear!

    In our Product Spotlight, we have our Excalibur Imitation Bacon Seasoning. Imitation bacon is great for any type of ground meat, but especially deer, pork, or beef. It makes a fantastic product that tastes and cooks like bacon, but without being normal bacon. It’s very simple to use, and all you need to do is take meat that is between 50 and 60 percent fat, separate the lean from the fat (if possible), and mix the lean meat with the seasoning and cure until it is very sticky, then just add the fat and continue to hand mix for a few more minutes. Once mixed, simply press the meat into an aluminum pan or form a slab on a baking sheet and cook or smoke until you reach an internal temp of 160 degrees. Then, let it cool, slice into strips just like bacon, then pan fry and eat like normal bacon!

    For our Recipe today, we made a Lemon Pepper Spaghetti Squash. If you are unable to eat pasta, looking for a new side dish, or just looking to switch up your normal pasta routine, Spaghetti squash is a great and healthy alternative! We started by taking a spaghetti squash and cutting it in half. Next, use a spoon and scrape out the seeds in the squash. Then, we used our olive oil mister to cover the squash generously. After that, we took our Lemon Pepper Seasoning and shook it over the the oil covered squash. Simply place the spaghetti squash meat side down on an edged baking pan with a few tablespoons of water and bake at 350 for about thirty-five - forty-five minutes. When you pull the squash out of the oven, hold one of the halves in a towel or oven mitt, and use a fork to scrape the inside squash meat into spaghetti form.

    Lastly, for our weekly Meat Hack, we are digging into Meat Binding. A lot of people ask us what is meat binding and why do you want to mix until the meat gets sticky? What we are doing with mixing and ultimately meat binding, is we are trying to extract protein. You can tell that your protein extraction is beginning because your meat will become sticky. Protein extraction is going to allow the proteins in the meat to encapsulate fat and hold fat and water together in the final sausage or product. Meat binders help cover fat particles and have a strong affinity for water, which holds more water and then keeps fat from clumping together. Then, the protein holds onto itself like velcro, around the fat particles. Good protein extraction will also allow the meat block to bind better to the sausage casing and reduce the tendency for fat to migrate to the outer layer of the sausage, or as some people say, fat-out. Having a good protein extraction and meat bind will help with increased juiciness from retained water, provide a better mouth feel, give your product a better appearance, and make the product have better slice-ability if you’re slicing summer sausage, deli or lunch meats.

    MMMMMM I was going to add Citric acid so maybe I’ll adjust and maybe do half one way.
    Thanks for info.Tarp.

  • @tarp First, I think you are wise to go with the 1/2 to 10 lb ratio if you haven’t tried that cheese yet it is extremely hot! Very good tasting but it is nothing at all like our Hot Pepper cheese which tastes more like pepper jack, this stuff deserves its name in my opinion.

    As for the flavor, I think they will match up fairly well. That might change if you use encapsulated citric acid, I can see the tang from the acid maybe not going so well with the Ghost Pepper Cheese. However, I also like adding Citric Acid when I make Habanero Lime snack stick so tang and heat aren’t necessarily a bad match, just something to think about!

    I’m going to make some pepperoni sticks in a few days and was wondering if anyone has added ghost pepper high temp.cheese to the excalibur product. My wife thinks not . I’m talking 1/2 lb to 10lbs meat.
    But we like it hotter than most people but it might not flavor it correctly.???

  • Smores Will it BBQ? Smores!

    In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Smores and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Prep Time

    5 Minutes

    Cook Time

    10 Minutes


    Graham Cracckers

    Utensils Needed

    Foil Pan

    Instructions So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are going to try BBQing Smores!

    Obviously, Smores will BBQ, doing them on a grill is basically the same process as over a fire but doing it on the BBQ might have a few advantages. With normal smores, you are relying on the heat from the marshmallow to melt the chocolate and you can only do a few at a time.

    Some people might say doing it this way takes all the fun out of it, the messy gooey fingers are part of it and if you have kids I’m sure that’s true but if you are making larger quantities for a dessert then this is the way to go. We lined the bottom of a foil pan with graham crackers then we laid a few pieces of chocolate on top of those and put the marshmallow ontop of that. We left the top layer of graham crackers off until just before it was done so we could easily monitor their progress.

    We did a few where we cut a slit in the marshmallows and inserted a small piece of chocolate to see if that made any difference in the finished appearance.

    We had our grill running at 450° and we let them cook for about 10 minutes.
    I sprinkled some Cinnamon toast shake on these and just like always that made things a lot tastier!

    So, Will it BBQ?

    So, in the end, is this any better than doing it over a fire? Well that depends, if the little ones want to use something like the Fire Fishing Pole and make an evening of it then this might take some of the fun out of it. However, if you are just wanting to make some delicious gooey smores for a lot of people then this is the way to go!
