Winemaker that works at a meat processor... Fresh quality meats & a creative mind

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by winepress, Jun 13, 2013.

  1. Hello all, I've been making wine at home over a dozen years, and making my own summer sausage n deer sausages as I grew up on a farm. Yes, I put homemade wine in my deer sausage. :) I actually own the largest winemaking forum WinePress.

    I am in wholesale sales at my friends' meat processing plant. We slaughter pork twice a week and beef once a week, we also bring in box meats. Needless to say, I have access to truly fresh quality meats. I use to work in back, making sausages, hams, bacon and more. We just built a new $6 million 22,000 sq ft processing plant after a devastating fire early 2011. Wenneman

    I've always enjoyed grilling, but really got into smoking ribs and pork steaks in the past two years. I just bought a Smoking Brothers pellet smoker in May. It's Made In The USA, and that's important to me, as I also own KeepItUSAMade discussion forum. I'm learning my pellet smoker and am open to all suggestions.

    I often make baby back ribs with bacon on them. I'll post my method soon. I often watch BBQ Pitmasters and we sell a bit to competing teams. I actually sold a New York shoulder that was used on good morning America last week by Mike & Amy Mills.

    Anyway, I look forward to learning more. Thanks in advance, Joel
