My name is Rolland, I started cutting meat over 35 years ago. My first job when I was 16 was at a custom farm butchering plant in Byron WY, were I learned the craft of butchering , cutting and processing meat. From there I moved to Cody WY and ran my own custom plant. It is there were started processing wild game for sausage and jerky products with a five stage electric humidity controlled smoker made by Koch ( KLE50 )
Today I live Vancouver WA were I am a meat manager for the retail chain FredMeyers. But I really miss smoking meats.
So I smoke a little summer,salami and jerky as a hobby now. With a big chief , smoke hollow, and a Grand craft as well as using a charcoal Weber smoker .
I started a FB fan page at https://www.facebook.com/backyardsmokedmeats and am working on website at Backyardsmokedmeats.com
On a personal note I am married with three Daughters and two step sons. And we have a boxer named Dante.
We are just a short drive to MT Saint Helens were we like to hike,boat,camp and hunt.
Hope to see you in the backyard
