Hello from Wisconsin

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, name is John. I actually joined here something like a year ago, but soon after I did, the site went away? I don't know, I couldn't log on but looks like it's back. I have been lurking in the shadows for the past couple months and decided to sign up again. I Live in Western Wis. Have been smoking & curing meats for 20+ years.

Most of my smoking revolves around cold smoking, dry and semi dry sausage and the occasional salt/air cure only like Prosciutto. I know nitrates make things easier, but there is something to be said about the old world craft, not to mention the flavor.

Now that Spring has arrived, (about time) it's time to start the smoker up once again. Look forward to sharing some of my smokes and checking out yours.

Welcome Back

Welcome back again, glad to hear ya checked back in.

I can hardly wait for some of the recipes, the old hand me downs are the best especially from your neck of the woods.

Interesting name, do you work in a salvage yard? I know of a few yards on that side of the state.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
