Canned pineapple juice, had a bunch stored on the bottom of a brand new trash can ( at least I got the bottom part right) didn’t think much of it did one of my every few months checks open the lid and POW I got hit with pineapple juice smell.
The juice had eaten its way through the cans and I had a 3 inch pool of juice in the bottom of the can. Cleaned it all out through away the cans and learned a lesson there.

I got moldy jerky one time from letting it cool down too slow. Learned to throw it in a brown paper grocery sack and forget about till the next day. Gives a nice just right drying effect. Always store left over jerky in the freezer. Never the ice box.
Anybody have a root cellar?

This very morning i turned off two dehydrators full of jerky and just left them in the trays. I was running late and didn't want to weigh it out till tonight.
I sell the guys at work three ounces for 5$.
may have to raise to 6$ because of inflation. HA

Great tip on that. Pineappe juice is a good solvent... as is grapefruit juice. Was running off a batch of bbq sauce one time that included a little Grapefruit juice. Decieed to brew it up in a thin aluminum pan. Stuck it in the ice box for a day or so and it ate a hole in the pan.

When she got skinny, she married a guy we worked with then one day out of the blue, she cut his ass loose, changed the locks and stuff like that. It was funny to the rest of us because no one liked either one of them!

He claimed to have watch old Patton pee in the River and said tankers love canned bacon cause they can cook it right on the Tank exhaust. He would not let the pretty young new skinny wife drink coffee from his dearly departed former wife's coffee cup so she got her feelings hurt and ran off. Then he up and died of old age. Its sort of a bitter sweet story. sniff sniff.
