I was watching a bit yesterday. Very nicely done, Dawn!
You're a few steps ahead of me on the sausage gig...I'm just doing loaves/snack sticks/jerky strips right now..chopping meats with a food processor if whole muscle, or buying ground...I'll will be ordering a grinder in January...can't wait...still need a stuffer and good size meat mixer though...things to look forward to anyway. I am getting a good feel for the meat curing and seasonings...it's great to play with flavors and eat the results!
Hey, is that the Bandera that your the Kielbasas is hanging in? Looks like some heavy-duty rack supports...nice smoker!
Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your latest hobby!
