I'm currently in Temple, en route to Austin this summer. We talked about having a meet-up sometime a few months ago, but I don't think that it ever happened. I had to bail at the last minute because I had double paper deadlines looming.
I'm in Dallas - I'd love to get a grill going! I've been wanting to get to know some more Dallas peeps to learn where they get their goodies.... like grassfed meat (maybe do a cow-share?) or if we can get raw milk/cheese....

Odessa/ Midland here by way of Lubbock for school. Lived in dallas my whole childhood (well, not counting my first 6 mo in Richardson.)
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
You are now an honorary Texan as well, as long as you use vernaculars like y'all occasionally. Besides, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Mississippi.
This is where I sourced my last batch of uncurred bacon and it looks like they ship. I will contact my other farmer sources to see if they ship.
