An old dog looking to learn new tricks.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by pops da butcher, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. Hi all. I am joining you smoking enthusiasts to learn new tricks, or better improve on my old tricks. Maybe I can share some of my expertiese.  I am a butcher, beencutting meet mfor almost 50 years. I have done commercial smoking, and am now doing it on a smaller scale for the market I am working in.  I have a 20lb stainlessm, smoker i bought from the sausage maker in Buffalo new york, and I think it does a wonderful job of smoking.

     Looking forward to hearing from anyone who wants or needs any info on meats or sausage making as that is my specialty.

    Welcome to the SMF family Pops- There are a number of us here that used to be or are currently working the meat cuttingbutcher trade. I no longer cut for a living but I'll get a good deal on a half of beef and use my buddy's meat shop to cut my own. It's nice to be able to keep my skills up.

    Looking forward to your posts

    Enjoy the Smoke!
