Re: “The Charcuterie Underground

Though I enjoy reading this article, I am saddened because the writing of this article will be the demise of this business. The health inspectors have already raided Frontera and Rick Bayless to confiscate some "illegal bacon" because of this article. What a shame how the Reader loves to find some really cool, small time underground operation and then put it in their paper, making great efforts to point out how it is illegal. The owners are psyched because they think they have finally hit the big time and this will help them grow their business to the point where they can afford to go legit. Then the next week the city sweeps in and puts them out of business. I've seen it before with art galleries and rock clubs, now add the indie bacon makers to the list. C'mon Reader, you should know better, you really did these guys a disservice. To the E&P Meats guys, be ever vigilant. The city is not going to show you any mercy and they will put you out of business in a second if they find you. Stay underground.
