Cooking food with smoke (and no I’m NOT talking about marijuana) is the origin of barbecue. It is one of the oldest cooking methods, used in just about every culture around the world. There must be something to this! Miller’s certainly likes to keep things fun and interesting. This week, we’re introducing some seriously yummy new products - smoked beef sausages!

Miller’s has a LOT of ground beef right now… so much that ground beef is on sale for 5% off. And yes, the 3, 6, 10, 20, and 40 pack bundles are 5% off, too!! I’d love your help. Could you cook some ground beef for your family, please? In case you need an extra push to help the cause, here are 5 reasons why ground beef is just awesome...

We made a mistake. Oops! And, there’s no shame in admitting it.
You see, we have a problem. There’s simply too much ground beef. So, the Miller’s team started brainstorming. What can we do with all that ground beef?
Eureka! The farmer saw “Sloppy Joe” on the processor’s menu. So, he had some made.
Here’s where the trouble started. When we got the Sloppy Joe back, the team noticed the not-so-great ingredients in it.

I was chatting with someone recently who casually mentioned to me how great buying day old chicks from a hatchery is, because they come to the farm already vaccinated. Wait. What!? This caught me by surprise… but it really shouldn’t have. I mean, we vaccinate day old human babies. Of course day old chicks are, too! I had to learn more.

The pandemic has exposed major weaknesses of many of the American systems we rely on. And, one of those systems is the agricultural system, specifically meat.
You see, four huge companies control 85% of the American meat industry - Tyson, Cargill, JBS, and Smithfield. It’s monopolistic. When a part of the supply chain goes down, the entire system breaks. And, it’s the farmers, animals, and consumers who take the hit.

Growing up, I would go to my Grandma’s house for Christmas. It was basically the same menu every year. I remember the sound and feeling of cracking walnuts at the table, the spice of her mashed turnips on my tongue, and the smell of the brown sugar glazed spiralized ham baking in the oven.
Oh that spiralized Christmas ham!
But... as I got older and became more aware of the healing powers of food, I began to think twice about that ham.

It’s less than a month until Thanksgiving, and that means it’s time to start sending our turkeys to the processor!
Here are some quick notes about our turkeys:

A customer asked a question about what organ meats we offer (check out a complete list with the status here). I take all customer questions seriously and do my absolute best to answer honestly and accurately. This particular question led me down a rabbit hole and to a fascinating and timely revelation.

Don't waste - eat the whole beast. Plus, the organs are packed with major nutritional value!
Here's the status of bones and organs as of today.

It seems that we are trying to measure and track a lot of things these days. Whether the data is actually valuable or useful or accurate is another story.
There is one tool that I use regularly in my kitchen, and it is data that is certainly useful and reliable.
This is a shout out to my meat thermometer. Thank you for all you do to cook delicious meals for my family!

Bear with me this week. I have a bunch of interesting turkey details to share with you.
This year the turkeys will be on demand! That means you order one when you need one. No preorders this year.
Fall turkeys will start going to the processor on September 29th and will continue to be sent through November. That means that you can start ordering whole turkeys soon! As of right now, there are some turkey cuts available.
Here are the basics - Our turkeys are a “white” breed, live on green pasture, and are naturally raised and processed.
I am always wanting to find out more about how my food was produced. This year, I’m diving deep to answer the question, “What’s in the feed?”

Chicken breasts are a favorite in my family. Baked, fried, sauteed, stir fried, or grilled. They’re so versatile and almost always a hit.
In the summer, when I want to keep the heat down in my house and save energy, chicken breasts go on the grill.
I love grilled chicken, because I can make a huge batch quickly and eat it as leftovers throughout the week.
I typically go for the savings and buy the 5-pack or 10-pack and cook it all at once.
Then, I can make chicken sandwiches, chicken salad, cubed chicken, chicken and noodles, chicken quesadillas, chicken stir fry, chicken tacos, chicken ramen, chicken pizza … I mean, there are SO MANY options!
But… here’s the catch. It can be a bit of a challenge to master the art of grilled chicken breasts. They can easily be too dry or crispy on the edges.
You’re in luck this week. I have some great tips for grilling the perfect chicken breasts!

I am very much enjoying my grill this summer. In my area, it’s been mostly HOT with not much rain. Perfect grilling weather!
Burgers are so darn quick and easy and typically please even the pickiest eaters. It’s always good to know your family will eat the food you’ve thoughtfully sourced and mindfully prepared. And, we all know burgers are great for gatherings.
The only problem with burgers is that they can get a little boring. So, why not dress it up once in a while?
There are so many ways to elevate a burger. This week, I’d like to touch on my husband’s favorite - a fabulous blue cheese burger!
