Newbie in Nodak

Awesome forum guys.

Rod from Nodak. Primarily a sausage guy. Always got together with others and co-oped equipment, no more. Time to do it all myself...

Gonna build a smoker of my own. Standard equipment is #5 Lems vert stuffer and various means of grinding..

And a true believer in my Weber grill with lump charcoal...

Really looking for a Southwest Chicken Sausage recipe I had that used fresh cilantro and tequila.... MMmmmmm... the search continues..

Gotta make sausage to my tastes. Thanks

rod - welcome to an excellent forum!

i'm from north-central montana all my life, but my dad was born and raised in killdeer, and i have a lot of family in the watford city/keene area. my first year of college was in jamestown, and if montana is God's country, then north dakota is certainly His back yard.

a great crew here, very helpful and certainly congenial. if you have any questions, just sing out.

Glad you joined us, welcome to SMF !!!
You look familiar, do I know you from somewhere.....? :)

I tried the equipment swap till a few years ago, felt I was providing info, knowledge, tools, spices, pork and casings at my residence..... so my wife and I decided we would do it as a team alone. One of the best choices we ever made. Love getting to gether with friends but not paying for thier good time and sausage at my expense and labor. I would much rather make my own and eat it or give it to who I choose. One freind was taking the sticks i made for him and handing out to friends of ours saying he made them; right in front of me.

What is the basis if your smoker build?

If you do not have a grinder your comfortable with I can send you plans of how I built mine off of. It is a 3.4 hp on a #32 grinder, very good grinder if you are into the DYI stuff.

PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif Welcome and Happy Smoke Rings from Sedalia, MO. (formerly Beresford, SD). I take fishing and prairie dog shooting trips up to Ft. Peck, Mt and go through North Dakota. I used to haul meat in a big truck and got to Minot, Grand Forks, Fargo, and Bismark quite ofter especially when it cooled down. I like straight roads and good XM Radio. Semper Fi and welcome my new friend. I like to smoke to suit my taste buds also that seems to be what it is all about.
