Re: Celery Powder Cure

The celery powder thing is just something I wanted to try and see what it is all about, plus my son and his wonderful wife have been health conscious for sometime now, heart issues run in my family and I can understand it. With that being said, I...

Refrigerate, mixing every 12 hrs. and let it sit for 2 to 3 days. I add liquid smoke to it, as opposed to smoking. Put in my dehydrator for 6 hrs. at 160. With...

AIR IN STUFFER

Hi Guys I've been busy, but here is a simple question , with probably many answers. What methods have you found work out best for getting most of the trapped air out of your stuffer? I tried many ways and dreamed up a few of my own. I have some good results, but would really like to here from you all.
