So I haven't made too many posts, but I finally got some time. I cured a pork shoulder in the style of a ham (which from what I understand makes it a cottage ham?), and I'm smoking it with apple wood. I also had some sausage I had intended on stuffing in the freezer (it was for brats), but ran out of the correct size casings, so I stuffed some bigger, fibrous casings for like a summer sausage sorta deal.
Just thought I'd share some pictures throughout the day!
My smoker is pretty, ugh, sad, haha. It's a busted down kettle smoker type thing. I set the pan for the wood on the ground, then theres a grate in the middle I'll put a water pan on, and then the top grate for the food. I'll post more when they're done for sure!
