"Its just an old tamale pot, what can it hurt?"

"5lbs is perfect for me, I'll never do a single type more than that.

Well a bit more on the Summer sausage failure. I did some examining of the area where I had the summer sausage box stored. We have op[en rafters in the garage, no drywall of sheeting. It appears that a bird nested right above that area and the droppings from the nest building and living is what got to the casings. My fault for not keeping them stored properly. My son was the one that grabbed them and didn't know that the mess around/partially in the box was an issue. Well everything is stored properly now. All in animal proof totes (well not bear proof) now and protected. Pretty dumb as I had all my other stuff stored away properly. So lesson learned. Back to business as normal!

Thanks Gary! He's a great helper in the kitchen for sure. He was pretty proud of his endeavors. He had to take some of the pepperoni sticks and the foccacia bread he made the night before to Grandmas to share and show off what he made!

Ha! I figure I'm pretty safe since you're 2,700 miles away and there's no Bears in my neighborhood!

 

When I lived at the coast I had Black Bears that would come into the yard occasionally.  There were two Bald eagles that nested in a big fir tree next to my garage. During the later spring months the sea bass come up to the surface and feed on the crab zoea (larva). You'll have acres upon acres of sea bass flipping all over the surface. Perfect pickings for the eagles to snatch up and take to the eaglets in the nest. When they are done eating the fish and wanting to keep a clean nest they kick the carcasses out of the nest. In my case these landed all around my garage and driveway, typically when I wasn't around during the day. Never would forget the first time I came home I saw all these sea bass carcases all over my driveway. Thought my fishing buddies were playing a joke on me. A day or so later I caught one of the eagles in the act of pitching out the trash!  Anyways, this attracted the black bears looking for an easy snack after sleeping all winter!
