Hi to everyone. I am a 68 yr. old male, married, 2 kids, 6 gandkids, and retired since 2002. I enjoy all and any outdoor activities as I was raised on a farm. My hobbies are barbershop singing and bird photography. I would like to learn how to make bacon and how to smoke bacon and sausage to add to my hobbies. I almost forgot, I am also a Cajun Humorist though since the wife got sick I have not had time to pursue that venue as she is not able to go with me and I can't leave her alone to do my Cajun Humor. I hope to have meaningful interaction about meat smoking and curing with anyone on here. Thanks for your time and effort you all put into this forum.
