New technique

I learned a great new technique for pork and sausage, thanks to my fellow Brethren


A little slow going today but overall not to bad. Did a few bulk orders and sold alot of sandwiches. The Newburyport festival is this weekend and next weekend so lots of people did not come by this week.

The write-up

Barbeque and burgers to eat

One of the first things noticeable when entering the farmers market was a large white sign. On the sign, under the words “Fat Belly BBQ,” is a picture of a pig, stomach full, sitting in a law chair by a barbeque.

As obvious from the name, the owners of this tent, the Tighe family of Georgetown, were selling BBQ sandwiches made from pulled pork. Elaine and Kevin, who were at the stand this week with their son Kevin Jr., said they have been making the sandwiches for a little over a year.
Also for sale was a variety of homemade jams which Elaine has been making for years.

Customers who wanted another option for something to eat could find it at the Camp Denison stand where hamburgers and other items were being made and sold.

Good Feedback

I appreciate all the good comments and reviews I recieved yesterday and for all who showed up at the market.

Some Comments:

"I am orginally from South Carolina and this is the best pork I have ever had. It reminds me of home."

"I got all this for $4 and boy was it good."

"The best"

"We have no good BBQ around and this stuff is great."

"You need to open a resturant"

I love hearing the good feedback but when lots of people come back for seconds and thirds, you must be doing something right.
