Zaycon Foods BBQ and Bacon Events

19 Jun

Last month, Zaycon Foods had a BBQ foods event and I’m just getting around to posting the pictures!  The event included bacon-wrapped pork fillets, Gold Medal beef hot dogs, Gold Medal Polska kielbasa sausages, and pork loin “meaty” back ribs.  I really wanted to get all of it, but settled on the bacon-wrapped pork fillets and the beef hot dogs.

The bacon-wrapped pork fillets came frozen in a 10 pound box, which was 30 fillets, for $39.90 ($3.99/lb).  I split this case with a friend, so we each got 15.  Here is how the case looked:

Zaycon Foods Bacon-Wrapped Pork FilletsAt first, they seemed a little smaller than I was expecting, but actually, they are a perfect size.  I grilled these about a week after getting them, and they were really good.  My husband put his in a bun and had it like a sandwich.  I just cut mine and ate it.  Looking forward to enjoying the rest of these soon!

The Gold Medal beef hot dogs came frozen in a 10 pound package as well, which was 50 hot dogs.  It was $29.90, or $2.99/lb.  I kept this whole case myself, wishing I had gotten another!  Love these hot dogs, they are so good!  Here is how the case looked:

Today, was the pick up for the fresh premium hickory smoked bacon event.  And, just in time because I’m down to my last couple packages of bacon.  They made some changes from the last event, the bacon is fresh, but was delivered frozen.  Which is fine because it all went in the freezer anyway since I still have some from the last event to use.  It was also packaged differently.  Last time, it was in two 15 pound packages, and this time there were twelve 3 pound packages.  Their reason for this was to make it easier to share the case with friends and family.  I haven’t decided if I will re-package this or not.  I’m sure we could eat 3 pounds of bacon at once, but I don’t think we should!   Anyway, there were 36 pounds total, and it cost $125.64, or $3.49/lb.  I shared this case with a friend, and here is my share of the bacon:

Next month, they have a chicken tender event and a ground beef event scheduled.  Definitely getting the ground beef, still undecided on the chicken tenders.
