    Deer brat pics and a question.

    I took them out of the package, rinsed them off, soaked them in warm water for a hour, rinsed them again before putting them on the tube.

    Deer brat pics and a question.

    I made 6lbs of deer/pork brats. I bought the High Mountain brat kit from Cabela’s. I used 3 pounds of Deer, 1lb ground pork and 2lbs pork fat. The hog casings came with the kit. When we pressed the sausage I felt they were to fat. I barely held pressure on the casing while pressing. When I...

    Jalapeño cheddar venison snack sticks.

    Do the casings come in the LEM snack stick kit? If not what kind of casings are you using? I’m just getting into sausage smoking but man i really like it.

    Elk summer sausage.

    I went big in my first ever attempt at sausage making. I made 25 pounds of elk summer sausage. 21 pounds of elk and 4 pounds of pork fat. Added green chili and cheese to the cabelas summer sausage kit. Overall I’m happy how it came out. Next time I think I’ll do 5 pounds at a time. I’ll also...

    Lay it or hang it?

    I killed a elk in September. Got a 5lb LEM stuffer for Christmas. Killed a deer last week. I can’t wait to make some summer sausage. I built a stick burner but sold my propane stick burner. I would have to build some type of hanging contraption to hang it. Can I just lay it on the rack or do...

    Yank-a-billy vortex and wings

    They look great but how did they come out? Was the skin crispy?

    My first attempt at a build.

    This small fire is all it took to keep it at around 275 degrees. It was smoking TBS at time and other times I couldn’t see the smoke at all. I love this thing.

    My first attempt at a build.

    I didn’t even realize that I had not posted the finished pictures of my smoker. I finally finished it up and it works great. I kind F messed up the paint though. I went with flat black at first but thought I needed a semi gloss so I cane the door a coat of semi gloss. Then I realized I didn’t...

    My first attempt at a build.

    I added a thermometer port and shelf for the maverick. The door was annoyingly heavy so I added a counter weight that doubles as my door stop.

    Building my first pit

    I don’t understand how they connected.

    Building my first pit

    Nice skills with the torch. I hadn’t used one since high school machine shop so mine looked like a hacksaw blade.

    My first attempt at a build.

    Now that just need to figure out how to get this heavy bastard off the ground so I can cut off the bent casters and weld these new beasts on.

    My first attempt at a build.

    Here’s the holes I’m talking about in my welds.

    My first attempt at a build.

    Finally got my smoker back from the sand blaster after a month and a half. Ridiculous. They did a good job but the blasting uncovered a lot of my imperfections in welding. There quite a few holes. I’ll post a few pics of them. I don’t want to fill them in with welds as it will splatter the...

    My first attempt at a build.

    I finished up my FB door handle. I’m still not sure if I like the elk antler handles but since I’m so ready to be done with the smoker, they will have to stay for now. All I have left is a little grinder touch ups and paint.

    My first attempt at a build.

    How is the paint holding up? Is your cooker outside exposed to the elements?

    My first attempt at a build.

    Got the handle fabricated and welded on the lid. Made a damper for the chimney as well. All I have left is a handle for the fire box and to touch up a few areas with the grinder. Then I have to figure out how to paint it.
