    Two Small Smoked Hams

    Interesting that Pops wet cure brine calls for 1 TBS of cure #1 per gallon compared to 4 oz per 1.25 gallons in your brine. Quite a difference there.

    Picked up a Craigslist Slicer

    Dave, thanks for the information, the slicer is cast iron and had been previously painted so it should be ok. I will keep this in mind because I also have an older buffalo chopper that has an aluminum base and housing.

    Picked up a Craigslist Slicer

    Found this baby on craigslist for $190. I cleaned it up and painted the casting a gloss black. I believe it is from the 40's or 50's and has all the original parts as far as I can tell.

    Costco's vs Sam's club

    I shop at both as they are equal distance from our house. I love the self checkout at Sams and the lines are much shorter and not as crowded. The Sams club by us sells beef cheeks, tripe, tongue, and some other cuts that are not at Costco. Beef cheeks in the instant pot are to die for.

    Is there an electric smoker that will go low enough to smoke cheese too?

    i also use the A-Maze-N-Tube, works best with the mailbox mod to keep the temperatures down. I don't usually smoke cheese when it is hot do large batches in the fall, winter, and early spring.

    how to prepare fresh pork liver

    Thanks, Hated beef liver as a kid, my parents would buy these big cream puffs from the German restaurant for desert and when we saw those in the refrigerator we knew what was coming up for dinner. Now I still can't eat them as their own meal but when made into a pate or a sausage I can eat them.

    Looks great, did you make the dried beef yourself? Around the holidays in Wisconsin we would use dried beef to make cheeseballs and when I moved to Denver last year I had to go to a couple of stores just to find it. Next year will make my own but you have kick started that into the near future...
