Excuse me, Mayor, but, at this point, the following question must be asked:

What about the trifecta, here...that you're slim, your name is Jim and you're
unquestionably a jerk(y) say like Jim McMahon (formerly of da' Bears)?

I am not real sure I understand your point. I certainly am not Slim, by any definition.
I am Albert J. not James or Jim.
I really prefer to remember Jim McMahon in the image of the B Y U Quarterback who set several Passing records for the school, while living a rather unusal life-style (for a Provo resident).
I am what I am. If that makes me a Jerk(y) to you, oh well.
Maybe I am just not in tune this morning. The Cusine Style Thread set me off a bit.[|)]

Whoa and Oops!!!

My use of the contraction "you're" (above) wasn't directed to you, Al. I was only using it to better phrase "say you're a guy named Jim..." It has absolutely NOTHING to do with you. Sorry!!

I only brought your name up because I was reading your previous contribution about threads going in different directions from their original intent and thought that my question would be a bad parody.

Now it remains simply bad. Sorry for the confusion, ATMB !!


Happy Holidays !!

...however, I'll let my Jim McMahon analogy stand on its own merits.

Kurt,
It must be the 28 day blahs for me! When I got this way while teaching I could always find a kid to blame for the world's troubles! Now I just 'Moderate' the crap out of the boards...It's not the same !
Re- McMahon, I am afraid that I will have to agree with you. I think he could have been a genuine legend in the game, but let his ego destroy the better qualities.
On this brief topic. I am not really a packers follower, but I take my hat off to Bret Favre. Last night his performance under the terrible stress he was going thru relative to the sudden loss of his father must have been crushing. But he did what he had to do, and I salute him for his example.

Getting back to the slim jims.....
They have got to be superior to "cracklins" which are apparently pig skin and fat with the hair burnt off and deep fried. Keeping in mind what that skin was in contact with for most of its actual life.
Slim jims are best when kept in the glove compartment on hot summer days and eaten while hot for the super grease squirt.

Roy: Don't you think it is a matter of taste?? I like Slim Jims and they are tasty but they are processed meat that is flavored as hot, medium or mild along with other spices. Cracklins are different and it is like comparing apples to oranges.

As you indicated, the skin has been around for a while. That may seem distasteful, but so has the other parts of the porquine.

My grandmother rendered the skin and fat to yield lard which they used to cook with. The cracklins out of the huge vat were delicious. Grandma saved these cracklins to cook with and they were delicious in the cornbread, beans and many other dishes she used them in.

Even more important was the old folks gathered at the springhouse and used cracklins as a neat horse dervers with their libations which was home made. Much like I do potato chips and cheese.

If you have never had fresh cracklins, you have missed out on a wonderful taste.

I don't know if it's necessarily the "Slim Jim" brand or some of the other "7-11 Counter Top Mystery Meat Sticks", but I DO know that when "beef lips and mecahnically separated chicken" are listed as the 1st 2 ingredients.....well, THESE lips ain't touching 'em!!

I have the Kopykat recipe for Slim Jim™ if anyone is interested.

Infuse one 12” link sausage with 2 cups lard.
Reduce link to the diameter of a pencil without losing any of the lard.
