I just wanted to drop a note and introduce myself and say "thanks" for the countless amount of knowledge that everyone has shared on this site. I have learned crazy amounts over the past few days. Thanks again.
My wife just upgraded me from a little chief to an MES 40". I also just took advantage of the sale on the Weston stuffers at Cabela's. Stuffing with the kitchenaid was not getting it done!
I have made bulk breakfast sausage and some fresh brats as a trial run. I am really looking forward to getting into some summer sausage and other smoked sausage products.
I gave the smoker a test run with a prime rib steak and pork loin steak. I was happy with the results.
It's going to be a fun winter!!
BTW - it sure is nice to have Butcher and Packer around the corner : )
