  7. Good looking stuff!!![​IMG] Those vacuum sealers are the best thing since sliced bread. I've got venison summer sausage in my freezer from last January that tastes just as fresh as the day I took it out of the smoker.

    looks great Bill, it is good to know what you actually have isnt it. not to put down anyone that does this comercially. but if you dont do it yourself you really dont know. if it tastes as good as it looks you did a great job!!!
