Another wheel is in town! This time it's another Bake-O-Meter. I've shown you one of these before, but this one is from Roy Colca of Houston and, I guess, Lucky 7 Stores. Roy's the maker of Italian sausages all year round!
This wheel measures 3.375 by 5.25 inches and is in pretty decent shape. Now I know how long I need to cook a heart (35 minutes per pound at 350 degrees). This wheel bears the copyright date of 1947. My father was living in Houston back then (no air conditioning!) and I wonder if he would have remembered ol' Roy?
Why did we spend $17.50 on this thing -- a duplicate? Well, we saw it for sale at an antique store in Burnet, Texas this past weekend. And, as John says, it's nice to find a wheel "in the wild". Plus, we like the sausage angle.
