This guy used to reply in practically every topic and was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was a member of the OTBS. His name doesn't appear in the Member List anymore and I searched the forum for his posts and came up empty. I've noticed since the crash that there are a lot more noobs especially here in the Sausage thread (not that there's anything wrong with that). It just seems that there used to be a lot more posts from experienced users and qview of a broader variety of sausages rather than a lot of people asking about how to get started making sausage. I don't understand why some people such as Texas-Hunter who were so active before the crash have stayed away since? Also, I'll try to do a better job of posting qview of my smokes and sausage making as I have not recently posted any qview myself.
