    Met a guy last sunday who makes his own beer. Has a very nice setup. Got to talking about what i do and he said hey i will trade you a growler of beer for some SS....Sure.

    Made up 5lbs of SS, Stuffed and smoked.

    I like vac sealing the chubs when i get an IT of 150, then vac seal (no ice bath) and they come to IT at 152 in the vac bag. Works great

    I put the netting on for looks this time again.



    I didnt have time to stuff and smoke yesterday so i just mixed and put in fridge.

    This morning i started to stuff and smoke.


    Almost ready to pull, this pick was 1.5 hours before pulling from smoker to vac seal.


    Vac sealed and hanging to cool (no ice bath) Then in the fridge for a couple days. One chub i did not vac seal, wanna compare to one vac sealed.

    Not sure that's a fair trade for your ss?
     
  3. I would guess it all depends on how awesome that beer is, because that SS looks really good

    Insulated and will keep the beer, cider, or whatever cold for a couple days if not in the fridge. Because of how it seals the beer doesn't go flat either. The company is local to me. They just came out with a 128oz one. I participated in their kickstarter campaign and will have my new 128oz in September and the carb tap too! When you live in the Mecca of Micro you get cools things!

    Cut one the chubs and made a meat and smoked cheese tray for the guys at the cigar shop tomorrow. Cut the rest of the soppressata also.








    Guess a drinktank will have to wait for the price to come down for me.
     
  15. Holy cow, stunningly gorgeous!! I'd give you my 1994 Toyota corolla and my right arm for trade! Plus I got 5 kids, we won't miss a couple....lol.
