I agree with Redzed about the creosote with the smoke generators the one I bought has no motor . The Amazen 5x8 trey using sawdust is cooler than the tube. I smoke my bacon two times for about 10 hrs with a day or more rest in between following Marianskis` metheod and is not over powering with smoke...

longanisa

Hey , Guys

When I make longanisa ( Pinoy ) using cure #1 after grinding I put tin a lug over knight
in the ref. then put it in zip lock bags the next day. Can I put the sausage in the zip lock
bags directly or does a gas have to escape ?

TIA Paul

UMAI drying

I'm doing an orange whole pork loin using the UMAI bag, I was wondering if I cut it in half crosswise or lengthwise then put it in the UMAI bag that it should dry quicker but would it take away the quality by the shorter time ? I have one drying now following Redzed recipe Thanks as always Paul :roll:

Thanks Guys` I guess there really is`nt any middle ground when it comes to stuffers, like there is with meat grinders . I was hoping somebody has given it a thought . I thought if you can slide in a mixer why not a stuffer. I purchased a 45 watt one made in China I broke it 1st time out . Being 71 a...

Hey Guys`

The other day when I saw redzeds` homemade adapter for his meat mixer inserted into
his meat grinder I thought that was "ingenious" and then Wondered if something like that could work with a sausage stuffer has anyone tried this ?

Thanks Guys as always Paul

Hey Guys`

I live in a retirement comm. ( a lot of rules ) and have limited space so Umai works
for me, with that said they Umai says not to use a garage fridge I thought it might be because
of the winter months and the defrosting cycle ?
