Venison jerky question

I am going to make some venison jerky. I am looking at the recipe on page 522 in the book "Home Production of quality meats and sausages". I am going to try this method of boiling the strips first in the marinade then tranfer them into the dehydrator. The question I have is why does the recipe not i...

I like the idea of using the water bath to finish the sausages. I have been looking at Nesco roasters online. They all seem to only go as low as 200 degrees. Is there one that anyone recommends that will go as low as 165-170 degrees?

So my question is do you get better results with the water bath vs leaving the semi dry sausages in the smoker?

Thanks Ross for the reply. I didn't use a brine this time. Good idea on the heat shield.

Smoked Turkey for the New Year?

I had a last minute idea to smoke a turkey for dinner tonight. I am smoking between 250 and 275 degrees. I am trying something new and putting the turkey in a disposable roasting pan inside my smoker to collect the drippings to try and make gravy. I was wondering if any other members have tried this...

Lem grinders are nice grinders. I would go with the bigger one. I just bought a Gander Mountain 15lbs stuffer with all metal gears on sale right now for $180.

Very good brisket summary! This will help me when I do my next brisket. You put it perfect on falling off the bone tender. My first time doing a brisket mine was tender, but dry and overcooked, not what I wanted. I have never tried foiling. I will try that next time. As always thanks Chuckwagon!

Electric meat grinders?

I have been looking at getting a new electric meat grinder for a while now cause I am tired of my old hand crank grinder. I decided I want to spend a decent amount of money and get a good one. The two I have narrowed my search down to is the LEM #22 which has the big bite technology. It is suppose t...

I would suggest finding a gear motor. They have a lot of torque and you don't have to use pulleys or belts. You just have to find a flex coupling for connecting the grinder to the motor. A guy I work with gave me the suggestion for the gear motor. I am going to try and motorize my sausage stuffer. H...
