Wow, time flies! It’s our Blog Birthday/Blog-versary! It’s officially been ONE YEAR since this blog has begun. I cannot believe that in the midst of fair season (cutting numerous beef, making sausage for custom fair hogs, and catching up on ham and bacon from hogs already cut) I got a wild hair and decided to start a blog! Talk about crazy! It’s been quite possibly to date the busiest year we’ve ever had at Chico Locker & Sausage and who knows if this blog had anything to do with it or not!?

What we do know is that we deeply appreciate the support, the comments, the shares, the likes you’ve given us. Trying to become an online presence is tough for any full time business person. But we enjoy sharing our story with you all. We enjoy being able to debunk myths, fears, or concerns you have with the meat you eat. We enjoy trying to help you find/locate whatever type of meat you’re looking for. And well, we enjoy having a little fun and laughing with y’all sometimes too. So for any and all of you who read, who commented, who liked, and who shared what we had to say this past year… THANK YOU! The support and encouragement you’ve given does not go unnoticed. And in fact is very much appreciated! It’s the people like you who make this venture all worthwhile!

So to celebrate the first year of our blog… We will be counting down the TOP FIVE Chico Locker Blogs.

#5: Fun Meat Fact Friday: Prime Rib:

Basically a complete shortened version about one of the most coveted cuts out there, especially for the Holidays! Know the difference between boneless prime rib and standing prime rib..? This post is a must read in order to serve up your family the absolute best for your special occasion!

#4: Fun Meat Fact Friday: Porterhouses, T-Bones, and New Yorks, Oh My!

Do you know the difference between Porterhouses, T-bones, and New Yorks…? If not, better check out this post! Being an informed buyer at the grocery store can not only save you money! But it also helps you get exactly what you’re looking for!

#3: Debunking Pink Slime

For the meat industry, 2012 will be remembered as the year of “Pink Slime”… It’s all been hashed out, talked about, and said over and over again. But I am so thankful that people decided to choose us as a source to find out the truth behind the stuff known to us as Lean Finely Textured Beef!

#2: Fun Meat Fact Friday: Internal Temperatures

No matter how you like your steak cooked, it’s important to know what temperature your degree of done-ness requires. How about poultry or pork products? Sometimes a visual check isn’t sufficient to tell if your meat is done. A meat thermometer and this blogpost is a fool proof way to make sure your meat is always cooked perfectly!

And the NUMBER ONE read blogpost of all time… This surprises me but also makes me giggle..

#1: Fun Meat Fact Friday: The Truth About Hot Dogs

I would have never guessed that our most read blogpost to date would be about hot dogs.. But apparently people love their hot dogs! For information about what really goes into your hot dogs.. Check it out!

Well there you have it… Our first year of this blog under our belts and lots more information and meat to come! Again, thank you everyone for the support! We wouldn’t be writing if it weren’t for people like you!

Here’s to another year full of education, sharing, and well, meat! :)

    Chico Locker & Sausage,

    I am continually impressed by the high quality meet your company produces. Rather it be sitting down for a meal or driving by on my way to work, the smell of your BBQ is always so inviting. Also, the way you keep updated with your customers with your blogs really creates a community feel and a personalized experience.

    Im a writer for the LivingInChico.com blog and would like to highlight your business as a Chico BBQ favorite. We post blogs 3 times a month and our next blog will be going up this friday providing the community of Chico with the best BBQ restaurants/ meals in town. We are only highlighting two businesses and would love to see what we could do to help spread the word about your great meat and sausage production.

    Best of Luck,
    Travis Martin
