What's up Carnivores!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, my name is Brandon and I'm a BBQ Addict........


......I have been BBQ'n for 10+ years!  I have done it all.....Smoked beef....pork.......chicken, even grilled using charcoal.......and I knew I hit rock bottom when I started using Propane to grill, just to get my fix!   LOL!


All Joking aside, I'm from Texas and by the grace of the U.S. Navy I have been transplanted to Yokosuka Japan.  Due to my living arrangements here, I don't get to BBQ like I use to.  Well I don't get to BBQ at all, unless you call cooking on a propane grill BBQ'n, but I don't. 


Prior to coming to Japan, I was stationed in Muskogee, Oklahoma as a Navy Recruiter.  I loved it there, and I plan on going back when I'm done with this gig.  While I was there, I was introduced to Vinison in various forms, hamburger, back strap and my favorite, Jalapeno Cheddar Summer Sausage.  Since leaving  Oklahoma, I have been trying to make the Summer Sausage, like I remembered it (using beef) and I'm pretty sure that I have it down.  So on to fresh sausage.  Growing up in Texas, I remember the all beef Hot Link, and thats were I am at now, playing around with making fresh sausage.  One thing that I have realized that I am missing, when it comes to makeing sausage is a SMOKER!  Its just something that I can't get right now, but I still have fun making a few different types of sausages and throwing them on the grill. 


Thank God my addiction has not put me in debt or cost me my marriage!   sausage.gif

As for returning to Oklahoma I can sure understand that. Just spent a couple weeks there and that's some true hard working American folk there. All the best to you.
