Dave,
Almost as busy as the wife who again is somewhere out on the pacific today catching more for me to smoke in the future. Oh and she took almost 1/3 of the pictured bounty to share amongst them tough fishermen.

Interesting note that though I have a recently aquired meat slicer for making thin slices for jerky, I did this last batch by hand and love the results a lot better.

Just as fast in slicing and no slicer machine to clean up afterwards. But mire important The slicer provided very large boring commercial looking pieces of jerky whereas by hand I'm able to do little pieces, big pieces more knarly looking piece I call Twisted Sisters and everybody else loves those little pieces better than big boring commercial looking pieces.
