Upper Midwest

Post by marionsmeatmarket » January 16th, 2020, 3:37 pm

Good afternoon!

Iowa/Minnesota home butcher, sausage maker, and cured product cooker looking for ideas to be ever improving my cured smokehouse cooking.

Cook list:
- kielbasa
- andouille
- bacon
- snack sticks
- bologna
- jerky
- hot dogs/frankfurters
- pork butts
- brisket
- ribs

Wish to cook list:
- dried beef
- ham
- landjaeger
- summer sausage
- semi-dry products
- fermented products

Interested in all things food preservation from a practical and historical perspective as I continue to strive toward self-sufficiency.

Welcome. Interesting hobby you have there.... food. :D

Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.

Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right. Henry Ford

If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?
