    I just wanted to drop a note and introduce myself and say "thanks" for the countless amount of knowledge that everyone has shared on this site.  I have learned crazy amounts over the past few days.  Thanks again.

    My wife just upgraded me from a little chief to an MES 40".  I also just took advantage of the sale on the Weston stuffers at Cabela's.  Stuffing with the kitchenaid was not getting it done!

    I have made bulk breakfast sausage and some fresh brats as a trial run.  I am really looking forward to getting into some summer sausage and other smoked sausage products.

    I gave the smoker a test run with a prime rib steak and pork loin steak. I was happy with the results.

    It's going to be a fun winter!!

    BTW - it sure is nice to have Butcher and Packer around the corner : )

    Hey, Down Low, welcome to SMF!.  Others may not know Farmington Hills, but I do.  I lived in Novi from '86 to '01. I learned how to stuff sausage myself when I moved to Massachusetts since they don't know how to make a proper Brat here, at all!  Anyhow, welcome to the group!
