So, my buddy came over and finished plumbing in my HWT for my bathroom shop (he also did all the plumbing in bathroom)
SO time to repay,,, Told him he has to provide the meat and I will provide everything else.
I thought it a good deal and so did he.
First batch was 25lbs of Tex Mex from PS Seasonings with Lava Jack Cheese Hi Temp
We had about 20lbs of snack sticks and 5lbs or so of summer sausage,
First batch I did not get any shots before smoking here they are out of the smoker
There is a lot of sticks -
After blooming for a few hours into a brown paper bag for a overnight rest in the fridge.
Too late to get any pics of the summer sausage
25lbs of Habanero Snack stick seasoning with Lava Jack Cheese
Seasoning came from PS Seasonings and Lava Jack came from Butcher Packer
Before they go to the smoker I put them in room temp for about 2hrs then into 130*Smoker
with dampers full open and No smoke for about another 2hrs
Then I add smoke and bump temp up 10* each hr till smoke gets to 170 and meat gets to 152*IT
the New expanding tube smoker worked great!! So good I bought another one LOL
This should supply him for a while
Second batch done!! Waiting on the summer sausage to get to IT.
This took 2 days and about 9 hrs each day
I will try to get a money shot tonight after I get home
Thanks for looking
A full smoker is a happy smoker
