  1. Anyone else here wood smoke their own meats and fish. I've gotten back into it a little. Here is a picture of a Chuck roast up top, poor mans brisket. And a pork shoulder on the bottom, for pulled pork. 20190923_213015.jpg The chuck roast will be smoked with Hickory and the Pork shoulder will be smoked with Apple.They both have dry rubs on right now and will be refrigerated until tomorrow morning.

  5. Not really expensive.. The pork shoulder was on sale, less than 4 dollars. The chuck roast around 11 dollars. My brother is one of my neighbors and he caught the Mackerel in Maine on his vacation.

    This is the pulled Chuck roast. It will be used for sandwiches and taco's. Also threw together a chocolate pie for dessert.Pork shoulder has about 3 more hours. 20190924_203012.jpg 20190924_175850.jpg

  8. Yes, I have Canibis. I haven't in years though. I used to use a jerky shooter with ground deer meat. I like deer jerky better than beef jerky. I also make my own sausage.

  9. I dabble a bit, but don't really have a good sausage recipe yet. I thinks its kind of like growing. Takes a lot of time to truly master, but completely worth the trials and tribulations.

    Very true. My biggest mistake when first starting out was using to lean of cuts. Pork shoulder works good for your pork portion of your recipes. I've used this book as a guide since the late 80's. I've had great luck with many of the recipes in it. Also using fresh dried spices and ice cold almost partially frozen meats help a lot. 20190924_225816 - Edited (1).jpg

  12. This is what I'm up to this weekend. The ground meat is a mix of pork and beef with spices. This will become a smoked,dried sausage called Landjaeger. I make this every fall it is delicious. 20190928_172056.jpg 20190928_190714.jpg 20190928_190723.jpg The other sausage is Bratwurst it's a fresh sausage. Both German varieties.

  14. S2C ! How you been brother?

    I need to make up the rest of my rough cuts soon, and smoke a batch or 5.

    Hoping it cools down enough by November here. Because if it stays as hot as it is now, they'll be smoked by the time I get out the stand. Lol

  15. Almost died in Jan and again in May when my bowels perforated. Came home from hospital Father’s Day weekend weighing 126 lbs. I’m up to 155 now but still weak and in pain. But I was given some more time for whatever reason, so I’m making the most of it now

  17. My 19 year old son just bought a house. It’s a full gut and remodel. Luckily I passed my home improvement company on to him as well and now he’s making the big bucks. I wanted to retire at 55 and hand him the reigns but cancer decided 37 was long enough. At least I’ll get to help him fix this house up and we’ll always have those memories.

  18. It's great your son wants to follow in your footsteps. He's young too. My son is 21 and still in college. He took a few years off. You and I had similar goals. I was a workaholic and wanted to retire at 55 as well,I worked for GE. I tried taking an upright freezer down a flight of stairs by myself and lost my footing. It made it down 11 steps when I caught it. I blew out 5 discs. I worked for another 6 years before I had a series of surgeries that ended up permanently disabling me. Then 10 years later I was diagnosed with MS. I'd spend as much time as I could with my son too if I was in your shoes. Not sure if you believe in prayer. But, I'll add you to mine.

  19. I believe very much in prayer. And will do so for you as well. It’s the only reason I’m still here. God Bless brother.

  20. I smoked some cheese today. This is my old smoker,used for low temperature items like fish and cheese. What you see up top is called a coldbox. It just raises the inside rack above the smoke/heater and allows me to obtain a lower temp. The second picture is the 3 types of cheese I smoked and vacuumed packed. 20191001_131551.jpg 20191001_232442.jpg
