I'm still doing my evolved version of Mark Wilson's BIL. So I'm now considering different methods for loading a signed bill into a lemon, kiwi, or a fruit cake.

No shills (use to use shills), serial number erasing, or seriously heavy, knuckle-busting methods.

The load itself should be jet-fast, the item to be loaded should be inspectable before.

Reading material and teaching video suggestions appreciated.

TIA

I’m not being a jerk but what are the circumstances that you would wish to have a lemon inspected before a trick?

Not an "inspect this lemon" sort of inspection; more of a pick a fruit, any fruit at all...expecting that they'll look at it.

I'd like to perform it at my end of summer BBQ.

You could use Sankey's Paperclipped method to affect a signed bill to just about anywhere.

You can take a lemon, remove the "pip" off one end (pip is the little brown remnant of the stem). Push in blunt end of a sharpie to create a hole into lemon. (Squeeze a bit of juice out too to reduce how wet the bill gets). You can then replace the pip, holding in place with a little wax or glue stick.

It'll pass quick inspection and blend in with other lemons. Easy enough to load after taking off pip.

Do you do this for "live load" after a bill is signed during the routine? That seems more like a pre-show sort of preparation ... and the original post seems to be asking for in media res (in the middle of things) help. I am just thinking out loud as I know I could easily have misunderstood. I have begun reading about these methods in case I decide to move to a signed bill method.

A bill to a fruitcake too? Also Yuen who mentioned using Paperclipped?
I haven't been successful getting paperclips on a lemon.

I would probably do it like this. have a bowl of oranges. vanish the bill in something else using
a great flesh colored flexible tt. have someone freely select an orange. Ask them if they want to change their mind.notice'' something about the end of that orange. have someone take part of the peel off the end.
Notice a tiny bit of paper, show your hands empty, open it, extract part of the bill, let someone else pull it out, you open up the orange and ditch the tt. Spectators might remember the free choice and their pulling it out more than the method.

Yes. I am looking for a way to load a signed bill into a freely selected orange, lemon, watermelon...

I haven't had the time to watch the lecture I purchased that's supposed to have a solution...

The Final Answer by Scott Alexander is what you seek. I don't know that one is currently available for sale though.
