Sorry guys for missing out to make pics of head cheese making and stuffing... 2 grandkids, wife "honey do list" and cooking pork head and hocks.. no time between: "grandpa, we need you"...!
Anyhow... Grandkids safely tucked back to their mom, wife watching some girly tv thing and I am out smoking my precious head cheese... Hard time to keep temp below 24 deg C... 23 hrs to go...
Front peace is missing...my bad..... It just happened some red onion and freshly baked bread was, out of blue, available... Couldn't resist...

Da wow!
I was expecting my grandmother's version of boiling out a full pig head to extract the fat and meat for stuffing. I don't remember what casing she stuffed. Appears a stomach
Good choice slicing up for the smoke.

Great looking meal!! The meat is very well dispersed throughout the mixture. That makes it nice to eat without any surprises?! Put a fried egg with that, and I'd never leave! LOL! 🍻
