    Beekeeper, my old computer crashed a short while back and I was offline for a few weeks until I picked up the one I am using now. The speed of my old computer was like driving a Volkswagon Bug in a world where everyone else was driving a Ferrari but I was used to it and it served me well for over ten years. Now this yard sale special, a speedy old sloth still running on XP, that I picked up to get me by, makes my old computer look like a jackrabbit. Sad part to this story is that I lost all my old email address and contacts including yours when the my old hard drive committed suicide.

    The alligator meat came from the first night of last season north of the causeway. It was 13"3" and I had nothing to do with hunting it and killing it. I was just at a friends farm the morning of the kill when the person who killed the gator, who was also a friend of the farmer, pulled up in front of the barn and asked if he could lift the gator out of his boat with the farm's tractor/front end loader and then use the farm compressor to help skin it. He just wanted the skin so I ended up with two hams and some backstrap. The farmer ended up with the other hams and tail. After I tried to cook a piece of the ham, I found it to be so tough that the rest of my hams got ground up into sausage. The sausage was even a little chewy but good. Upon giving the farmer a taste of the sausage he ponied up his two hams and the tail to be ground into sausage also but he wanted to add some feral hog to the mixture so he also supplied the pork. With the addition of the pork fat, the sausage ended up much better. Now I plan to cook the back strap (there is nothing tender about it so it can not in truth be called tenderloin) for the fourth just so those sharing the feast with me can say that they have ate gator.

    Santa I'm gonna BBQ a whole wild hog that my wife shot. We'll have silver queen corn, apple pie baked beans and red, white and blue potato salad made of All Red, Purple Majesty and Caribe taters from our garden. Desert will be a churn of fresh peach ice cream. Drop me an email when you get a chance. I hope your health has picked up since our last conference.

    We hope my son (active duty Navy) will get leave or liberty and join us for barbecued chicken and hamburgers to celebrate his birthday, which is actually on the 9th.

    I've got a couple racks of wild boar ribs that I will smoke low and slow for most of the day. Some friends will bring cole slaw and potato salad.

    FirstBubba, out of the many things that I miss from my early childhood, my mother's homemade Guernsey cow ice cream is one of them. Also my wife picked dewberries this season and froze some. Your meal sounds so good that I just might try to bribe her into making a cobber. We have a friend who has a Jersey milk cow that we are able to get a little cream from sometimes. That is how my wife makes homemade butter. I will check with our friend to see if I can get some fresh cream from her and try the ice cream also. Thank you for the idea.

    GERG, You know that you are always welcome. We are just plain old country folks who live off the bounty provided by the land and water. When I was real young, my father ground our own flour and corn meal, butchered our own cows and hogs, hunted quail and turkey, and grew most of the veggies we ate. His real love though was fishing. It was a way of life that I grew up into and just can not give up. My wife was a country girl who could always cook anything I brought home and make it taste good. You have met and seen me so you know good food is no joking matter around my home. I did not get this fat from eating healthy. After all, our labors just go to feed us anyway and no matter what my doctors say about it, I plan to die with a full belly and a smile on my face.
