    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...

    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...

    My first attempt at a build.

    I am starting out with a 40" long 19" diameter 3/8" thick CC. FB is 19" diameter 18" long a littler over 3/8" thick. 4" diameter stack that's 20" above the top of my CC. Kam59 has been helpful running my numbers and they are sufficient for air flow. I used a 4.5" grinder with a cut off wheel...

    Where to cut the CC door?

    I'm going to have questions because I'm new to building smoker. I don't know if I should start new threads when it's a totally different question of keep one thread and ask my questions in there. My CC pipe is 18.5" diameter. My opening from CC to FB is 7.25" in the shape of a football. I...

    CC to FB calculations are beyond me.

    I wasn't good at geometry and I'm obviously not good at following directions because I can't seem to figure out the calculations from the tutorial. Right now I have a 40" long piece of pipe that is 18.5" inside diameter for my cook chamber. Then I have a 19" inside diameter pipe to use as my...

    Is 5/16" steel pipe manageable?

    I got a 42" piece of 5/16" steel pipe for a cc and a 24" 5/16" pipe for the fb. Both are 20" in diameter. I was thinking about cutting the cook chamber down to 36"-40" because one side of the pipe is not flush. The fire box will need to be cut as well. My question is how hard is it going to be...

    My best brisket yet.

    So I don't know if what the exact reason is for this being way way better than any other brisket I've made. I used a Prime grade brisket which I never have used. I trimmed it up better than I have before. Smoked it on my brothers in laws Traeger. I wrapped it in foil at a internal temp of 167...

    I found another good mini pot option.

    So it seems that the Vasconia pot is really hard to find. I was lucky enough to have built one when you could get them from walmart. Our local target stores have the Imusa pots but they are to large at the top for the weber lid to fit and the take modifications. A few months ago I was at one...

    Anyone tried this pot?

    Its a 32 QT Imperial Home pot. They have them on eBay from $19.99-$27.99 with free shipping. I made mine with a vasconia pot and love it but all the Imusa pots I have tried are to big for the smokey joe lid. I know they can be modified but I would rather not have to. So has anyone tried the...

    Finally finished my mini.

    So I have been reading post after post on this forum and the weber forum about building a mini. I took ideas from about 5 different builds and incorporated them into my build. Bdskelly can be credited with the pop riveting the lid to the pot. I like the fit much better like that. Big thanks to...

    Diffuser decisions.

    Hello, I have all my parts together to build my mini. But I can't decide what to do about a defuser. I like both of these designs but can't decide which I want to do. I dont think i can post a link to the weber forum so I'll explain. One is called a flying saucer and he cut the center out of...

    Will there be any difference if I?

    Will there be any difference in the final product if I put smoke to my spare ribs for 3 hours and then finish them for the last few hours in the oven? When I do ribs I sometimes foil sometimes don't foil but I always have cooked them the entire time in the smoker. Tomorrow we're expecting...

    So will the Amazen tube smokers work in my propane GOSM?

    I have a few questions about the amezen tube smokers. First off I'm using a GOSM 38 propane smoker. I am wondering if the propane burner is gonna rob to much oxygen from the tube to keep it lit? Plus are you guys still getting a smoke ring when you use the tube? I have not seen them in action in...

    Another green chili meat loaf.

    So I saw a post by Fester a week or so ago and he made a green chili meatloaf. My wife, father in law and mother in law just happen to be peeling a fresh batch of roasted green chili at the time so I decided to steal his idea. I hope it turns out half as good as his looked. Thanks for the idea...
