Farmland Pork Master’s Prime Collection Giveaway

Farmland Steak-Seasoned Thick Cut Bacon

I received compensation in the form of products from Farmland Foods for this post. All opinions, however, are 100% my own.

“Would you like to try our products?” they asked. Would I! “And would you like to give the same package to one of your readers?” Well, I wasted no time saying yes to that offer!

What offer, you ask? A gorgeous package perfect for grilling season. This is the Pork Master’s Prime Collection package from Farmland Foods and it’s billed as “pork cuts specially chosen for the meat lover.” It includes 8 pork wings, 4 jalapeno cheddar brats, 2 extra thick cut pork chops, and a package of steak seasoned thick cut bacon. If you’re a pork lover, you’ll want to enter for your chance to win this package. And, if you respond really quickly, we just might be able to get it to you in time for Father’s Day!

Prime Collection ContentsThis past weekend BeeBop and I tried out the pork wings and the bacon from our package. Now, I’m not exactly sure what a “pork wing” is, but the best I can tell it’s the end of a very meaty pork rib. They were fully cooked so all I had to do was pop them in the oven while I made up Farmland’s recommended Raspberry Stout BBQ sauce to go along with them. They were excellent! The next morning, we enjoyed the steak seasoned bacon with breakfast and were equally impressed with the results. We haven’t gotten around to the pork chops and brats yet, but judging by what we’ve tried already, those will be treats as well.

In case you’re wondering, Farmland is a subsidiary of Smithfield. I already trusted Smithfield to provide great pork products so saying yes to reviewing this package was easy.

Now for the giveaway. There’s a really short time frame on this one, so don’t hesitate. Enter right now. Farmland Foods is offering one Pork Master’s Prime Collection package as described above to one Never Enough Thyme reader. The contest is open to residents of the U.S. only. Contest ends on Wednesday, June 11 at 8:00 a.m. EDT. Notice, that’s 8 o’clock in the morning, y’all. The winner will be selected and will have 24 hours to respond with shipping information. If there is no response after 24 hours, an alternate winner will be selected.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below telling me about your favorite thing to put on the grill! Good luck!

Pork chops

2 Katherine June 9, 2014 at 1:01 pm

I love to grill big thick pork chops! They taste so delicious off the grill.
The thicker the juicier.

3 Larry Reid June 9, 2014 at 1:03 pm

I love to fix beans & smocked ham in the slow cooker.

4 Jessica June 9, 2014 at 1:04 pm

It’s a tie between pork ribs and steak!

5 Linda June 9, 2014 at 1:08 pm

I love just about everything on the grill. Pork chops take on a delicious flavor from cooking on the grill if there is a little fat on them and it gets really grilled.

I’d love the chance to check out those pork wings. Interesting.

I have been using Farmland products for over 5 year A representative called me and asked me to talk to Giant Eagle in my area to get them to handle there products I did and now they do. I just made cabbage and piergoes with Farmland bacon The small cubes of ham are nice to put in freezer and taken out what you need for a omelet.

7 sue dunn June 9, 2014 at 1:10 pm

Hand made sausage patties, extra crispy!

8 Joyce June 9, 2014 at 1:10 pm

My favorite meat on the grill would be Bratwurst and baby back ribs.

9 lillian mittner June 9, 2014 at 1:10 pm

My favorite on the grill are spareribs

10 j fleming June 9, 2014 at 1:11 pm

It would have to be Steak

11 Penny June 9, 2014 at 1:14 pm

I love marinating chops or chicken breast, or thighs in Ken’s Greek Dressing. Leave them in marinade for 24-48 hrs. then grill. The meat practically melts in your mouth. Also if you have any leftovers, they are a great addition to your favorite salad!!! Try it!!!

12 Wendy June 9, 2014 at 1:14 pm

Big, fat, juicy ribs :)

13 Randee Smith June 9, 2014 at 1:16 pm

My favorite thing on the grill is ribs, but I’m curious about those pork wings. Sounds interesting.

14 Nadine June 9, 2014 at 1:16 pm

Either good pork loin chops or steak

15 tom domenz June 9, 2014 at 1:22 pm

My choices are RIBS and shoulder on the smoker, STEAKS on the grill.
Recently discovered sirloin tip prime cuts at Costco. These are as flavorful as any steaks I have had, quick to freeze, they are free of any excess fat and they are quick to grill(5-7 min). These are the most all around efficient steaks.

16 Carol Faulkner June 9, 2014 at 1:29 pm

On the grill?? Pork of any kind, at any time but if I must choose…..sliced fresh shoulder is the best.

17 Tammy Lynn June 9, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Favorite thing for the grill is a toss up between ribs and grilled bbq chicken!

18 Nancy June 9, 2014 at 1:37 pm

Pork loin or pork ribs that have been soaked overnight in a black peppercorn marinade…..awesome!

19 Barbara Tucker June 9, 2014 at 1:38 pm

We love to put a picnic ham, glazed with a
Mustard/maple syrup melange, on our Primo
Smoker grill. Oh, the spicy-sweet crust on the
Juicy ham is heavenly!!

20 Jimmie Glass June 9, 2014 at 1:39 pm

I love to eat pork tenderloin from the grill. However, I love to eat pork of any kind!

21 June June 9, 2014 at 1:40 pm

pork loin

22 Keitha June 9, 2014 at 1:48 pm

My favorite thing to grill is bratwurst. My second would be a toss-up between ribs and chicken. I’ve never heard of pork ribs, but they sound interesting!

23 Lisa Evanoff June 9, 2014 at 1:51 pm

Favorite thing to grill is spicy sausage kebobs!

24 Sylvia Nightingale June 9, 2014 at 1:51 pm

My very favorite thing to BBQ is mu secret marinated BBQ chicken recipe; but another favorite is a pork shoulder roast brined in a sugar/whiskey soak for three days. Heavenly!

25 George June 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm

I like a grilled steak.

26 Audrey June 9, 2014 at 1:55 pm

Thick pork chops!

27 Robert Kelly June 9, 2014 at 1:57 pm

I like to brine nice thick pork chops and sear them on my infrared gas grill, smothering them with barbeque sauce when finished.

28 CATHE SALVESON June 9, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Love Pork grilled

29 Barb Danz June 9, 2014 at 1:59 pm

30 Jan smith June 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Whole port tenderloins! Mmmmm good!

31 Luana June 9, 2014 at 2:03 pm

I love Farmland products, I did not know they were part of Smithfields. Ribs and porkchops on the grill, the best part of summer!

32 Celeste June 9, 2014 at 2:04 pm

We just grilled some delicious pork tenderloin that had been marinated -recipe is in Frank Stitt’s book, Southern Table.

33 Kim Collins June 9, 2014 at 2:05 pm

My absolute fav is BREAKFAST! Pork sausage, bacon, eggs, halved peaches. YUMMMMMY In my TUMMMMY

34 Herb Cott June 9, 2014 at 2:06 pm

I love sausages with a kick, cooked on the grill.Then placed on a grilled toasted bun with spicey Kansas City style barbecue sauce.

35 Judy June 9, 2014 at 2:09 pm

We love just about anything on the grill, but chicken breasts are a big favorite of ours, nice and juicy…..

36 Betty June 9, 2014 at 2:09 pm

I LOVE to grill pork steaks and cheese brats! Wish I had some now!

37 LaVerne June 9, 2014 at 2:11 pm

I don’t do the grilling, my son does it. He gets a 10# trimmed pork loin roast from Sam’s Club, covers it with a rub (he makes his own rub), wraps it with plastic wrap and refrigerates it for about an hour and a half. Then he grills it to perfection. The first time he made it since I’m here I wasn’t very anxious to try it. I was afraid it would be dry and tough. Boy, was I wrong; this roast is amazing. It is so moist and tender I couldn’t believe it.

38 Denise Elmer June 9, 2014 at 2:15 pm

My favorite thing to put on the grill is Babyback ribs.

39 KURT June 9, 2014 at 2:18 pm


40 Joanne Holland June 9, 2014 at 2:31 pm

Pork chops would be my favorite, enjoy your blog daily. Proud of you and what you are doing.

41 Jill Miley June 9, 2014 at 2:32 pm

I absolutely love to grill jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab meat and wrapped in bacon and of course some baby back ribs!

42 Lisa L. June 9, 2014 at 2:35 pm

Ribs and pork chops

43 Kim June 9, 2014 at 2:36 pm

The favorite in our house is steak, but we will eat just about anything that comes off the grill, including pork roll!

44 Janet June 9, 2014 at 2:37 pm

Country style ribs are a favorite on the grill. Juicy and so tasty.

45 Karen Kimbrel June 9, 2014 at 2:37 pm

I love to put country style ribs and a boston butt on the grill, especially this time of the year. These two are family favorites and you can feed a crowd!! And of course Smithfield meats are the BEST!

46 Rick Patrick June 9, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Love bone-in rib chops grilled to 140 and kissed with sweet/spicy thai glaze

47 Kristie Wood June 9, 2014 at 2:42 pm

Baby Back Ribs

48 Estella Mosley June 9, 2014 at 2:52 pm

I love to season Pork Chops 1/2 in thick with my own rub. Let them sit overnight in the frig. Put them on a Hot Grill for about five minutes on each side. Then take them off and rap in Aluminum foil and let them cook until they are tender and juicy. There’s nothing better than good pork chops.

49 Leslie Kiley June 9, 2014 at 2:54 pm

Ribs are the best cooking along side Brats and corn!!! We cook enough to feed our army of family and friends for several days!

50 Nancy Thomason June 9, 2014 at 3:02 pm

55 Richard Gravender Sr June 9, 2014 at 3:15 pm

One year ago today I was in the hospital recovering from A left shoulder replacement. Every thing went great

56 George Ely June 9, 2014 at 3:19 pm

MY absolutely favorite thin is a standing rib roast. Done to 180 with a thermometer Ismack a bit of salt and pepper on it and rock n’ roll!

57 gloria patterson June 9, 2014 at 3:21 pm

I DON’T have a grill live in apartment…………………. BUT I do have my Lodge reversible griddle/grill, the best thing in the world to cook on. Nothing like thick cut bacon on the flat side or some grilled pork chops. Throw a few veggies on the grill and you have a feast!

I have to admit I am very interested in the “wings”!

58 Ilse Beijen June 9, 2014 at 3:23 pm

I love hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill.

59 Debbie Moore June 9, 2014 at 3:33 pm

61 T. Cody June 9, 2014 at 3:57 pm

Barbecued center cut pork loin chops about 1″ thick.

62 Dorothy Bishop June 9, 2014 at 3:58 pm

I like grilled pork ribs. Farmland is my favorite bacon wont buy any other. Snd they are local.

63 Caroline Gonzales June 9, 2014 at 4:00 pm

Here in the South we love to grill anything Pork mostly ribs fresh pork country ribs – sausages-pork chops -italian sausages-pork steaks-baby back ribs-and we baste them with thick sweet honey barbaque sauce

64 Becky June 9, 2014 at 4:02 pm

My favorite on the grill is chicken with a vinegar based BBQ sauce that I make. I use it in NC even though it has been called Tenessee BBQ sauce. It makes my mouth water right now. I have used it too on pork ribs and it is second only to the chicken!

65 Dee June 9, 2014 at 4:15 pm

We love anything that is cooked on the grill but I would guess that are more often grilled treats are brats or skin on wieners with steaks or pork chops being grilled for special occasions.

66 Beverly June 9, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Love barbecued chicken and grilled pineapple…yum!

67 mysweetiepiepie June 9, 2014 at 4:56 pm

I love to grill and spare ribs are probably my favorite.

68 Barbara Bingham June 9, 2014 at 5:18 pm

My favorite to cook on the grill is pork ribs.

69 Kat June 9, 2014 at 5:20 pm

I love burned hot dogs. Not just a little brown, really burned!! ;)

70 Jean Long June 9, 2014 at 5:20 pm

I love bacon and I really like a thick cut of ham thatsbeen grilled just enough to add grilled flavor to it.

71 SandyO June 9, 2014 at 5:28 pm

Our favorite is meatloaf on the grill. Would love to try the thick pork chops. We love anything pork. Thanks for doing this

72 Nancy Sacco June 9, 2014 at 5:45 pm

Thick brined pork chops, stuffed with havarti and honey maple ham, just the best ever!

73 Peg H June 9, 2014 at 5:50 pm

My favorite thing to put on the grill? That’s a tough one – we LOVE to grill our meat, many veggies and even some fruits. Hmmm … would I be disqualified if I say my favorite thing on the grill are Hatch green chilies? MMMMmmmmm ….. (Of course, after they’re roasted & peeled those green chilies would be fantastic laid across some pork chops on the grill!)

74 basketpam June 9, 2014 at 5:51 pm

Since this is an article and a giveaway about pork I’ll talk about MY favorite pork item on the grill. When it comes to pork there is no doubt what my favorite item would be, of course it has to be Baby Back Ribs. I just LOVE ribs and prefer at least part of their preparation to be on the grill. Now I have a brother, both of us all grown up of course and that boy (I still call him a boy since he’s my “baby” brother), just goes BONKERS for pork chops on the grill. Personally I never really think about pork chops and a grill together but they’re not too darn bad. Let’s face it, just about ANYTHING taste better when it’s had at least part of it’s prep on a grill.

75 Pamela June 9, 2014 at 5:55 pm

WHAT in the heck are pork wings? I’m usually pretty much up to date when it comes to the latest food trend but “pork wings” are a new one on me. What are they?

76 Kay Gurley June 9, 2014 at 5:59 pm

Pork steak!

77 Linda Kay June 9, 2014 at 6:01 pm

Cocoa crusted bacon wrapped pork loin! Holey Moley it is sooooo good! :)

78 Karo June 9, 2014 at 6:03 pm

After soaking some large skewers I wrap big ole shrimp in bacon. and then thread onto skewers. I usually precook the bacon a bit so the shrimp can be done around the same time as the bacon. Glaze with fav sauce..I like a brandy bbq one by Williams Sonoma. Think this bacon/shrimp recipe came out in the 70s and it is still great to this day.

79 Mary K. June 9, 2014 at 6:03 pm

Anything from the pig is good eatin’ as they say here in TN. So my favorite is kebobs with pork and veggies and pineapple.

80 pat Hibbert June 9, 2014 at 6:12 pm

i love ribs and baked potatoes on the grill

81 Theresa Materazzi June 9, 2014 at 6:16 pm

I am not a huge fan of hot dogs, but flavored brats are great on the grill. Ribs too!

82 Jenni June 9, 2014 at 6:17 pm

I would put just about anything on the grill. Except for my kids. Definitely not my kids.

83 Robert R Perryman June 9, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Baby Back Pork Ribs

84 Gary June 9, 2014 at 6:31 pm

88 Kathy Graves June 9, 2014 at 7:02 pm

89 Patty June 9, 2014 at 7:02 pm

I love to grill bratwurst, german sausage and really all pork productes.

90 Deborah Desormeaux June 9, 2014 at 7:08 pm

I married a Cajun from Louisiana, so it’s definitely grilling shrimp wrapped in bacon!

91 Shirley Alday June 9, 2014 at 7:11 pm

Country-style ribs are my favorite. But, brats are sinfully good!


92 Dinah Mutch June 9, 2014 at 7:12 pm

Do you remember when Flo said “When Pigs Fly”? Well that’s where pork wings come from–flying pigs!!! I still like to do marinated pork tenderloins cause they don’t get dry if you don’t know what you’re doing. I will try grilling just about anything ONCE.

93 GARY GRAY June 9, 2014 at 7:23 pm

I love grilling everything in this package along with burgers and of course, the ribs..Now that I have the grilling mat, that bacon with eggs are very possible..

94 Audra Bell June 9, 2014 at 7:40 pm

Bacon!!! Everything taste better with bacon!

95 Cindy Suminski June 9, 2014 at 7:47 pm

I don’t think you can beat a good rib! Yum! But that sausage looks tasty! Haha! I was thinking the same thing as Dinah, Lana! Flying pig wings! Thank you for posting this!

96 Janice James June 9, 2014 at 7:48 pm

We love to grill pork, any pork. This would be a great gift for Father’s Day since we are planning on grilling. Thanks for the heads up on this give away.

97 Michelle Schweitzer June 9, 2014 at 8:10 pm

99 Debbie Culbreth June 9, 2014 at 8:41 pm

It’s a tie between pork ribs and steak! I don’t know which I like best!

100 Gail June 9, 2014 at 8:43 pm

My favorite foods to grill are steak and corn-on-the-cobb. Along with a tall glass of lemonade, that’s my idea of a great cook-out.
Have a Wonderful Summer!

101 Jen June 9, 2014 at 8:52 pm

I love grilling steak!

102 Connie Cartwright June 9, 2014 at 8:53 pm

Thick cut pork loin roast cut into chops, on the grill with my boyfriends out of this world homemade BBQ sauce. Delicious….

103 Jen June 9, 2014 at 8:55 pm

Dream giveaway. Favorite? Can we pick just one? Not possible…steak, bbq, burgers, chicken… :)

104 Amanda June 9, 2014 at 9:17 pm

Steak, ribs, salmon–they are all delicious on the grill. My very favorite, though, is my mom’s barbecued chicken–she cooks it in a vinegar based sauce before grilling, and it is the best!

105 Janet Golaszewski June 9, 2014 at 9:18 pm

We love to grill romaine lettuce and serve with a ranch dressing, red onion, cherry tomatoes and bacon bits! Yum!!!!!

110 Jennifer Green June 9, 2014 at 10:24 pm

I love grilling butterfly pork chops. Sometimes I also grill bacon on the pork chops. Yummy

111 Christine J June 9, 2014 at 10:59 pm

We just got a smoker and did pork ribs, yummy! For the grill I love veggies. Zucchini and asparagus are amazing!

112 Bettylee June 9, 2014 at 11:34 pm

I love pork ribs, any, they are so awesome. But steak belongs to be grilled for the best steak!! I have used Farmland products, they are great. And I’ve had a whole lot of fun reading all my predecessors, esp their suggestions. Thanks

113 Neena June 9, 2014 at 11:36 pm

I love ribs and marinated grilled vegetables, that is the bomb!!

120 Linda June 10, 2014 at 9:55 am

I really enjoy grilling pork steak. And then with aluminum side packets of corn on the cob and cubed red potatoes in seasonings and a tossed green salad on the side. So easy and very tasty. The only way to cook during the hot summertime!

121 Delilah A. June 10, 2014 at 10:12 am

My son-in-law is Polish, so we love his grilled bratwurst!!

122 Liz Schneider June 10, 2014 at 10:49 am

I love grilled pork chops, and baby back ribs….YUM!

124 Dolly V. June 10, 2014 at 11:06 am

I love to grill pork tenderloins. They don’t take long to grill, you can use any marinade you want, and, you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to serve many guests! We love pork!

125 vicki t June 10, 2014 at 11:16 am

Love to do pork chops and anything cooked in a tin foil pouch…yum Really love huge onions stuffed with bacon and cheese. Also baked potatoes sliced almost thru( sideways) with bacon , butter and cheese in between. Sounds like I am addicted to bacon and cheese!!!! So be it…lol Never tasted anything bad on the grill. Use your imagination!!!

126 Susan Christy June 10, 2014 at 11:54 am

Grilled food is the BEST. I like grilled pork tenderloin.

127 George June 10, 2014 at 12:09 pm

A steak sounds good to me.

128 kathie June 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm

I like to use the rotisserie on my grill to make a pork roast, I use a special rub and have a drip pan underneath and when roast has about a half hour more to go I add green beans with sliced onions and garlic to the drip pan, stir and warm them up, mmmmm, delish!!!!

129 Chuck June 10, 2014 at 12:24 pm

I marinate slightly mallet-ed chicken breasts in teriyaki and pineapple juice. I make more than enough for one meal with the rest added to the top of a nice salad the next day.

130 Donna June 10, 2014 at 12:44 pm

I really want to learn to do better at grilling – always overcook. Want to try ribs! Maybe start with pork chops though.

131 Amy L June 10, 2014 at 12:57 pm

We love to do ribs, pork steaks, and sausages on the grill! In fact, we’re doing pork steaks tonight!

132 Mark June 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers!

133 JANIS NEILL June 10, 2014 at 1:22 pm


134 Kathy June 10, 2014 at 4:25 pm

The last thing I grilled was a little over a week ago and it was brats wrapped with bacon. I used toothpicks to hold the bacon in place. They were wonderful.

135 Felicia Prior June 10, 2014 at 4:43 pm

Pork chops

136 Jimmie Glass June 10, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Pork Chops are another favorite slow cooked on the grill. Pork is my favorite meat!

137 Ashley B June 10, 2014 at 5:58 pm

My favorite thing to grill is pork chops with pineapple.

138 Marta June 10, 2014 at 5:59 pm

Korean bbq (with foil protection) is nice on the grill. Mostly chicken thighs (boneless) is grilled. Hamburger hotdogs (burger patty shaped like a hotdog) seems nice.

139 Shannon June 10, 2014 at 11:25 pm

I love thick cut pork chops on the grill.
