Hi all! My name is Steve and I'm looking forward to learning from all of you. I live in Southeast Texas on the coast in the small town of Bridge City. I enjoy hunting and fishing, outdoors, camping, old lantern collecting. I've been processing my own deer for nearly 25 years along with my hunting buddies, one of which has his on processing side business. My friend has had some back problems and is going to have to quit for a while till he gets better, so the rest of us have struck out on our own till he gets back on his feet. As many deer as we have helped our friend process and make sausage, both pan and smoked, he has always done the smoking in his smokehouse, so I am on a learning curve about that part of it now. He will help us this season till we get our own smokehouse built, so any input ya'll have will be appreciated. We purchased a LEM 782 grinder and a 433TJ cuber/jerky slicer attachment along with it, so far I love the grinder, it performs much better than I expected. So, thanks for having me along and looking forward to joining in.
