    Why is it that so many threads turn into snark fests? The latest is the one asking about sugar-free bacon. It's turned into a argument about sugar. And that's just one of many. It irritates me when people just won't let it go. Arguing with people hardly ever makes them change their minds--I read a study about that (really!) but I'm not going to bother to find the reference and link it. if you don't believe me, consult your own personal experience. How often have you been able to sway someone to your side of an argument? (Without resorting to violence!)

    I've forgotten my rule about only surfing around in journals. *sigh* But once in awhile, a thread has some interesting or useful information. I really would have liked to find a cheaper source of bacon than US Wellness Meats. I've decided that I'm going to buy a smoker for Sweetie for his birthday and he'll smoke our own bacon. (And yes, he's already agreed to this! )

    Smoking your own bacon Goldie? Road trip to Utah! Seriously though, that is a great idea. Do you plan on curing it first of just putting it straight on the smoker? Great birthday gift btw.

    As for arguments, no, they do not change anyone's mind, but it's the internet and many people are bored so arguing is easy entertainment. My favorite part (sarcasm) of arguments here is when people start pointing out logical fallacies. "OMG I can't believe you used a strawman/tinman/toto and Blah Blah's coefficient of internet arguing says...and wow, did you just violate blah's law of..." Dude, it is the internet. I'm just here because I am bored. If I can piss you off enough to make you respond so that I can type another reply instead of hanging myself due to boredom at work then I have already won this 'argument.'
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    We are smoking jowls this weekend. They have been curing for a week, we used sugar and salt. I thought about doing it w/o sugar but in the end I decided that the sugar isn't really a big deal now that I'm done with my one month of autoimmune protocol.

    The snarky arguments can be somewhat entertaining, but it gets old pretty quick.

    I'm gong to experiment. Do some one way, some the other, and see what we like the best. Or just have both kinds for the variety.

    My brother lives in Tucson... next time we go visit, I'll pack the trunk with bacon...
