USWM at Paleo(f)x - Austin, TX

Posted by US Wellness Meats on Fri, Jun 10, 2016 @ 04:49 PM

Only a handful of my friends will stomach Liverwurst.

Even fewer when it comes to Pemmican.

What the Paleo f(x) Conference with 5,000 attendees held in store for me completely flipped that standard.

Never, I thought, would I see a child throw a temper-tantrum because their parents would allow them to have ONLY ONE piece of Liverwurst. When this happened, I knew I was with MY people!

Being the only booth with Bacon, you can imagine how popular we were. And how wonderful we made The Palmer Events Center smell! Not only was it delicious, but the accolades we received  due to its lack of ingredients (Pork Bellies & Celtic Sea Salt) could fill a novel:

  • No sugar?
  • No honey?
  • No nitrates or nitrites?
  • Whole30 approved!
  • This is the way Bacon should taste!
  • Nothing but Pork and Hickory Smoke!
  • Reminds me of my Grandmother!

Needless to say, we were out of bacon in less than a day and a half! Note to self: bring more bacon next time!

Of course, we brought more than just Pork Bacon, Pemmican, and Liverwurst. Braunschweiger, Plain & Spicy Beef Jerky, Original, Salt & Pepper, and BBQ Pork Rinds were ready to serve. To the dismay of many, Pork Rinds were gone by the end of the second day! I found a fellow Pemmican addict in Maureen Quinn, who was equally saddened that it needed to be rationed by the third day.

Amanda Love, from The Barefoot Cook (sorry, not the Barefoot Contessa!), was gracious enough to cook up Ribeyes, NY Strips, Top Sirloin, and Leg of Lamb Steaks.

By the end of the conference, everyone knew exactly where the delicious whiff of meat was emanating.

But, I would feel guilty if I didn't tell you about some of our friends that we ran into:

After hours of grazing my way through Paleo f(x), I don't know how I had room for dinner.

What an unforgettable experience; Meeting the members of my Paleo Family to share our passion for this exploding revolution!

Happy Meating!
