Check the thread called "RoadMap" at the top of Qtalk for Fatty threads (1# breakfast chubs from Johnsonville, Jimmy Dean, etc.) Also search "fatties" for some interesting experiments. Try Armadillo Eggs while your at it.
Lump: Search out a Restaurant Supply store. Sometimes they are a good source for lump (sometimes)
Ft. Worth: Can't help you there. You should try my Frito Pie I invented here in IL :)
