New here and new to making my own stuff. I love to cook and have various outdoor devices. I have SNS Grills Kettle with the rotisserie add on option, Masterbuilt 800 with LSS mods, Weber Charcoal Summit Kamado (OMG i love the the WCSK) , (all these are driven by my fireboard 2 drive) a Blackstone 30 and a Traeger 34 Texas that i stopped using after my first charcoal grill and a propane burner for pots. I am of the belief of cook outside from May to October I always cook outside not in the kitchen.

2 christmas ago my sister gave me a Sous Vide wand and that in itself forced me to get a vacuum sealer. Then this April I bumped into 2 Guys and a cooler you tube channel and I heard the magical words "this sausage stores well in the freezer" and I said to myself "hey I got a vacuum sealer and a deep freezer in the garage I can do this!!!" so i got a simple Cabellas 8 grinder and a measly 5# stuffer. then the bug hit and I got a 22 grinder and a chamber vac (sitting on a 32 inch tall stainless table with wheels so i dont get hernias moving it) and a decent sized stuffer is on the to do list.

i have no clue what i can contribute but hope to learn stuff and then eventually share knowledge as well

Welcome from MW Minnesota in the summer. Wife and I retreat to our Florida residence for the winter.
This is a great forum resource for curing, sausage, and smoking meat.

its fascinating when you think you got "the stuff" something else comes along
This forum is infamous for enabling. Someone has a toy (tool) that is way cool. I've spent enough picking up the same.
