My Christmas List – Any Advice?
I am making my Christmas list for this year. If you could give advice on specific items I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t own, nor have I ever owned many of these items before so I am not looking for the biggest or best of any of them. I am looking for simpler, starter items, nothing too high dollar. Something is better than nothing as long as it works. The more inexpensive these items are, while still being of good quality, the more of them I will likely find under the tree this year!
-Meat slicer – Chef’s Choice 615 Premium Electric Food Slicer.
-Vacuum Sealer – FoodSaver V3240 Vacuum Sealing System with Starter Kit
-Kitchen Scale – Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale.
-Small kitchen scale – American Weigh 100g x 0.01g Digital Scale.
-AMNPS – with Hickory BBQ Pellets.
-Meat thermometer – Maverick ET-733.
-Smoker thermometer – 2" River Country Professional Series Adjustable Grill & Smoker Thermometer.
-Smoker insulation – Wool fire retardant blanket, Mylar blanket.
-Auber PID controller – WS-1500GPH. (I don’t really think I will get it.)
-Knife sharpener – Presto 08810 Professional Electric Knife Sharpener
-Sausage Stuffer – Grizzly 5# Vertical.
Most of these were found on Amazon and I used the reviews there, plus advice here, and my wife's help to make this list.
As you may have noticed, these are all things for my smoker or for processing meat. That is all that will be on my list this year. If you can think of any other essential items that I have over looked please let me know. Also if you have a better recommendation than what I have listed please enlighten me. I currently own the following for meat processing:
Electric meat grinder, large cutting board, jerky gun (caulk gun thing), many knives (could always use more good knives), butcher freezer paper and freezer tape, and jerky racks for oven drying and cooling.
Thank you for looking and your help!
